Master Data Migration Relevancy Rules -5- Material master- Purchased Parts

One of the main requirements to migrate master data is to set up migration relevancy rules for each master data object.  I have implemented many projects, and everyone spends a considerable amount of time on this topic in every project. I have tried to consolidate the relevancy rules object-wise so that this effort can reduce your project implementation timeline. Use this as a template and modify the rules as necessary. do share any additional relevancy rules to make this blog post better.

The below table gives possible rules for migrating purchased Materials.

Data Data Elements Criteria to Migrate to SAP Criteria for no migration.
Purchased Component Status across plants. (Like Basic data status in SAP)   Active status (source system might have various statuses to identify)   Inactive status (source system might have various statuses to identify)
