|material group material (IS-R)|
Used for value-based inventory management at material group level.
One material group material must be created for each material group.
The supermarkets in your supermarket chain are equipped with cash registers that have material group keys. When selling different quantities of apples and pears, the till operator presses the material group key Fruit and enters the price. The sale is posted to the material group material Fruit on a value basis.
A material group material is entered at the cash register to enable the sale of value-only materials to be posted.
