i often get the requirement of fast searching for classifications/characteristic values etc, so i checked out what other options

are there beside transaction CL30N

I tried the EAM Webdynpros Search Functionality.

EAM provides several WebDynpros. These are using Embedded Search with TREX (/NESH_COCKPIT), and the same can be archieved with Hana (if your ERP is running on Hana, use /NESH_COCKPIT as well)

First you have to activate the enhancment switch LOG_EAM_SIMPLICITY  (see also sap help:

Simplified Management of EAM Functions – Business Functions (SAP Enhancement Package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0) – SAP Library )

i then assigned the PFCG-Role SAP_COCKPIT_EAMS_MAINT_WORKER  to my userid

After starting Netweaver Business Client with /NNWBC, i can see the new Role with the EAM Webdynpros:

i choose the Information Center


it is possible to fast-search for characteristics/classes using TREX or Hana!

especially when searching for text or even generic text starting with *, this is much faster than CL30N

from here i have the asset viewer and show the characteristic values here:


so for some use-cases this might be already a perfect solution

another idea could be to use the embedded search classes and create your own transaction (ZCL30?) or Webdynpro

in order to have a use-case specific characteristic value search instead of the generic infocenter, or even create your own embedded search class
