This document contains an example which covers enterprise structure design problem like a creation of duplicate custumer / material master data.
Sap provide general division , it is helpful for this problem also you can separate your revenue with business area…
I hope that this example describes all of them..
1- We have a company named IDES AG -1000
2- We have 3 plant , O100-O101-O102 names Meat Process Plnt – Egg Plnt – Egg Tray Plnt
3-We have 2 sales org , K001-K002 names Domestic-Overseas
4-We have 2 distribution channel O1-O2 names Wholesale-Retail
5-We have 4 division 00-O1-O2-O3 names General Division , Meat , Egg , Egg Tray
6-We have 3 business area O100-O101-O102 names Meat – Egg – Packaging
*** CUSTOMER MASTER : We can create custumers sales org. K001 or K002 , dist chan. O1 or O2 and division 00
*** MATERIAL MASTER : We can create materials sales org K001 or K002 , dist chan. O1 or O2 and divisions will be related with them. For example : 10×2 Egg Box will be created O3 Egg Tray Division…
*** We can create sales order with general division in header level , but also we can use materials created in different divisions. Like a Meat-Egg-Packaging..
go to tcode SPRO / Enterprise Structure / We will benefit from defines and assignments tabs
-Sales and Distribution Configuration Steps
Define Sales Org and Distribution Channel ,
**Definitions/Sales and Distribution/Define, copy, delete, check sales organization
** Definitions/Sales and Distribution/Define,copy,delete,check distribution channel
**Division creation configurations …
However , we will use 00 general division…
***Definition is completed. After that , we can start assignments.
– Assignment Sales Org to Company Code ,
** You can assign a sales organization only one company code.
– Assignment Distribution Channel to Sales Organization
*** You can assign a distrubiton channel to a lot of sales organization.
– Assignment division – sales organization
*** You can assign a division to a lot of sales organization.
— Set up Sales Area
After that , we have to manage sd with business area to seperate our revenue.
Business area account assignment steps ..
** Firstly , we have to define rules by sales area.
In this example ; I prefered rule 001 (Plant/Division criteria) , you can change it for your requirements.
Secondly ; Assign Business Area to Plant and Division .
*** Last step is determination of General Division .
Note : You can benefit from General Distrubiton option as same as General Division to solve duplicate creation of master datas.
Spro / Sales and Distribution / Master Data / Define Common Divisions
** Sales Order is created with Customer (Difined -General Division) , and Materials (Defined-Different Divisions)
*** Customer master has general division.
** Material master has division which is related with its production line.
*** Account assignment is managed with business area in item level.
Thanks a lot for your patience.
