Please advise the full form of the term SAP system.

Could it be corrosion resistant steel, sometimes erroneously referred to as stainless steel?

I don't like 20 questions.

Without more context "ss" in SAP could even mean "specific stuff" when talking about materials.

"ss" is not a number. But if there is a number then this might help!

Best guess is "Stainless steel" like already said!

Some indication of context would be valuable, asy would a definition of the acronym.

It might refer to steels with sufficient chromium content to be considered corrosion resistant in certain conditions. Or it might refer to Nazi Secret Police of WWII Germany.

SAP business management software is very, very customisable, and can be used from managing a flower shop's inventory through to chemical plant manufacturing process line control. There is no guarantee 'ss' means the same thing from one SAP system to another.

You need to talk with the people who use this particular SAP system or who were involved in programming it to find out the particular meaning of their acronym actually means.

Are we now talking about SAP as in Standard Actuarial Practice? I am sure I have nothing to offer anyone on that topic. I hate counting beans.

The trouble is you've asked us to translate one acronym which relates to another acronym without telling us what that other one stands for:-

How about Screen Sequence?

Could be referring to Cream Chipped Beef on toast,more commonly referred to as SOS.

Or: Same-o Same-o,describing situation as normal,sometimes the extended acronym is used,SNAFU.

In case of a real SNAFU,BOHICA is included,followed by DILLIGAF,and a FUKITAL pill.(pronounced FOOKITALL).

My company does not use SS in the material number itself, but in terms of spare parts/materials management, SS most often refers to Safety Stock. In SAP, you can find a material's Safety Stock value on the MRP2 tab using standard material transactions (MM0#).

I think officially the acronym SAP stands for Systems, Applications, and Products in data processing.

However, on the shop floor I've heard "Stop All Production"

Sorry I'm not much help on the ss term. Safety Stock gets my vote.
