In first part of the blog Simulation Workbench: Part 1 – Transformation Rules I introducted Simulation Workbench and demonstrated how it help simulate Transformation Rules. Now I will explain how it can be used to simulate Transfer Rules and Update Rules. To begin with start Simulation Workbench calling trx. ZSWB, then click on BW 3.x button

It will take you to another screen for Tranfer Rule / Update Rule simulation

Multiple Request Simulation with Additional Selection

Select from Source system, DataSource, Target, leave Request field empty. Again Simulation Workbench assists you with value helps all steps of the way. Press F8 (Execute) to continue

On next popup provide selection to limit PSA data

As you can see on next screen data HT-1000 material sales from multiple requests was pre-selected. Select all records

PSA Data Preselection - Select all.jpg

Then click on Transfer (F5) to proceed with simulation

On next screen Transfer Structure data records are displayed, click on Communication Structure (Shift+F4) button to simulate Transfer Rules

On next screen Communication Structure records are displayed, click on Data Target (Shift+F6) button to simulate Update Rules

Naviation to Transfer Rules

On Simulation Workbech selection screen click on Transfer Rules (Ctrl+F2) button to navigate to Transfer Rule, for example, to set break-point on specific trasnfer rule

On next screen from Menu Choose Extras -> Display Program

Choose Transfer Program on popup

Set break-point on Role Transfer Rule

Navigate to Update Rules

On Simulation Workbech selection screen click on Update Rules (Ctrl+F1) button to navigate to Update Rule, for example, to set break-point on specific update rule

On next screen from screen choose from menu

Master Data Transfer Rules / Update Rules Simulation

Similarly to Transactional Data Simulation Workbench can simulate Master Data

Texts Transfer Rules / Update Rules Simulation

Similarly to Transactional Data Simulation Workbench can simulate Texts

SAP Standard Output Format

Simulation Workbench also support SAP Standard Output Format for simulation result comparison (if in doubt)
