How to Create and Define Plant in SAP

What is Plant in SAP?

In SAP Plant is a manufacturing location where all the production of materials and products takes place and it is also the place where these products are temporarily stored before they are exported out to the warehouses. In other words, a plant is a place where inventory valuation takes place.

After creating a plant we will assign it to the company code. A plant can belong to only one company code but one company code can have multiple plants. A plant is required because a company code has several factory outlets throughout the country where goods are stored and the system checks for the item at the plant or storage location during an order entry.

For example, ABC Limited has manufacturing plants in Mumbai, Pune, Punjab, and Bangalore, where they can store the finished goods for easy distribution to the customers as and when orders are made.

Types of Plant in SAP

In SAP plants can be divided into 3 categories based on their uses.

  1. Production Plant: In the production plant all the production of the goods takes place.
  2. Inventory Plant: It keeps track of all the stock availability.
  3. Maintenance Plant: It is concerned with the maintenance of the items.
