Abstract

Based on some inconveniences identified within a material master data application of the SAP MM module, the current paper proposes an alternative technical solution for designing the popup layout screen of the material master data application with respect to language dependency. The application should present the text of all tabs, areas and fields in the desired language based on the user logon preferences. Also it has been implemented a possibility to sort the data in the desired order, so the customer isn’t forced, as before, to search for a certain field, when updating certain materials. The proposed solution suggests the use of five database tables, combined within three maintenance views, which build a view cluster. The advantage of the redesigned application consists of easier maintainability of the data (fields, areas and tabs can be easily added, deleted, reordered and renamed) and all the data within the view cluster can be translated into any language supported by the system.
