Financials
General Simplified Data Model in SAP S/4HANA Financials With SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition identically-named DDL SQL views (compatibility views) replace totals and application index tables in Finance. These views are generated from DDL sources. The replacement takes place during the conversion using SUM. Related data is saved to backup tables. The compatibility views ensure that database SELECTs still work. However, write access (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MODIFY) was removed from SAP standard, or has to be removed from custom code. For more information, see SAP Note 1976487

2257555 – S4TWL – Selected Business Functions in Financial Accounting (FI-GL and FI-AA)


The usage of the following Financial Accounting business functions are not the target architecture in SAP S/4 HANA. With SAP S/4 HANA 1511 – FPS2 they are changed tocustomer-switchable and obsolete in SAP S/4 HANA 1511 – FPS2:

  • FIN_AA_CI_1:        FI-AA, Asset Accounting.
  • FIN_GL_REO_1:     FI-GL (new), Profitcenter Reorganization and Segmentreporting
  • FIN_GL_REO_SEG: FI-GL (new), Segment Reorganization



Asset Accounting Asset Accounting Data structures in Asset Accounting have been changed massively
Controlling Profit and Loss Planning and Profit Center Planning CO-OM planning, profit and loss planning, and profit center planning are now covered by Integrated Business Planning. For more information, see SAP Note 2081400
Controlling Transfer Prices/ Parallel Delta Versions With the merge of FI and CO into the Universal Journal a new approach for parallel valuations has been implemented. Existing solutions based on parallel delta versions for actuals in Controlling have to be adapted.

Cash Management

Cash Management

Classic Cash Management is replaced by the new SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA. If you used the classical Cash Management and convert to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition, you need to activate the new SAP Cash Management. For a more information, see SAP Note 2149337

Credit Management Auto-Migration

The tools that support an automated migration from FI-AR Credit Management to FIN-FSCM Credit Management cannot be used in SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511

SAP Provides tool to carry out a migration from FI-AR-CR to FIN-FSCM-CR

Credit Management Credit check on basis of Maximum document value

Credit check on the basis of the maximum document value is not supported

Not supported.

It is supported as of SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 FPS2.

Master Data
Business Partner Business Partner

The Business Partner approach is mandatory in SAP S/4HANA.

The Business Partner is now capable of centrally managing master data for business partners, customers, and vendors. With current development, the Business Partner is the single point of entry to create, edit, and display master data for business partners, customers, and vendors.

• maintenance of recipient master data is not possible because Application Equipment & Tools Management is not released  with this release

• ONLY 85 customer & supplier fields in transaction BP are delivered, others cannot be maintained.

The supported-field-list in Transaction BP has increased. With FPS 01 – list of fields delivered has increased. Of interest are Incoterm, Customer-General data, fields, many Additional ( LFM2 Table) fields, (LFM1) Purchasing Fields and LFA1 table fields were added.

Product Master MRP in Material Master

The MRP functionality has been optimized for Material Master in SAP S/4HANA for simplification purposes.

For rmore information, see SAP Note 224371 .

Restrictions : (sNOTE#  2237351)

Source list is not considered by MRP sourcing. As workaround use purchasing info records relevant for automatic sourcing.

• HANA MRP does not yet create capacity requirements. As workaround use classic MRP (transaction MD01).

Extended Material NUMBER Extended Material Number

In SAP S/4HANA, the material number field length has been extended from 18 to 40 characters.


SAP S/4HANA supports material number with up to 40 characters. Therefore, the maximum length of the fields that handle the material number has been extended from 18 to 40 characters

MM-IM Inventory Management Simplified inventory management data model

Significant changes of the data model. The new de-normalized table MATDOC has been introduced which contains the former header and item data of a material document as well as a range of other attributes. Material document data is stored in MATDOC only. Actual stock quantity data will be calculated on-the-fly from the new material document table MATDOC for which some of those additional special fields are used.

Adoption effort on DDIC level for customer appends and coding adjustments for performance critical parts may be required Restrictions :

Printing & Archiving of Material Documents is not possible. It is planned to be realized for the next Service Pack. (snote# 2237351)

MM-IM – Inventory Management Material Valuation

To achieve a significant increase of transactional data throughput for goods movements, we recommend to deactivate the statistical moving average.

Caution : The deactivation is not reversible.

The deactivation of the statistical moving average is the consequence of a new lock behavior for materials with price control “Standard”.

MM-IM Inventory Management Material Valuation

Material Ledger Obligatory for Material Valuation.


Even though Material Ledger is become obligatorily active, Actual Costing is not. Activation of Actual Costing is

still optional.

If customers are not using the material ledger already it will be activated during the conversion process. In

MM02 and MR21 material prices can now be maintained in multiple currencies. In Financials the inventory

account balances are calculated separately for each currency and result therefore in a cleaner and more

consistent valuation in other currencies than the local currency

Conversion Pre-Checks SAP Note: 2194618

SAP Note: 2129306

Custom Code related information SAP Notes: 1804812

————–

Before S/4HANA, the inventory valuation tables xBEW(H) – tables: EBEW, EBEWH, MBEW, MBEWH, OBEW,

OBEWH, QBEW, QBEWH – contain transactional as well as master data attributes.

With S/4HANA, the inventory valuation tables do still exist as DDIC definition as well as database object.

However, they will only be used to store material master data attributes. The transactional fields LBKUM,

SALK3 and SALKV will be retrieved from the Material Ledger. (From S/4HANA 1610 these transactional fields

will be retrieved from the Universal Journal Entry Line Items table ACDOCA and the Material Ledger table. For

more detailed information please see SAP Note: 2337383).

You need to migrate the Material Ledger even if you are already using SAP Simple Finance (that is, you are migrating from SAP Simple Finance to SAP S/4 HANA Inventory Management).

In addition, you need to migrate the Material Ledger even if you are already using the Material Ledger in your source system.

If you performing

an upgrade from S/4HANA 1511 to S/4HANA 1610, no manual IMG Material Ledger data migration is necessary.

PLM – Product Lifecycle Management BOM, Routing, and Production Version Only BOMs with valid production version are considered during BOM explosion. Therefore, it is mandatory for manufacturing BOMs to maintain the product version for correct BOM explosion. For all BOMs in the system, we recommend to maintain product versions using the report Product Version Migration for BOM (Report :  CS_BOM_PRODVER_MIGRATION).
QM – Quality Management ITS services for results recording, quality notifications, and quality certificates

The ITS services for the Internet Application Components (IAC) in QM are not available SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511.

Instead, use the corresponding QM transactions in SAP GUI for HTML, or use the Web Dynpro applications, which are part of the PFCG role for NWBC Quality Inspector (SAP_SR_QUALITY_INSPECT_5).

PP – Production Planning Process Control Messages Control Instructions These functions will be consolidated. Once the successor functions are available, these transaction codes will be replaced in a future release
PP MRP-LIVE

The HANA-Optimized MRP

—————————-

SAP S/4HANA features MRP Live –> an MRP run optimized for SAP HANA.

* MRP Live reads material receipts and requirements, calculates shortages, and creates planned orders and purchase requisitions all in one database procedureOptimizes Performance

* The definition of the planning scope is more flexible. MRP Live allows you to plan a set of materials with all components, materials for which a certain production planner is responsible, or one material across all plants.

* MRP Live determines the sequence in which materials have to be planned across several plants.
* MRP Live is a prerequisite for the future production planning and detailed scheduling PP/DS solution in SAP S/4HANA.

—————————————–

Classic MRP is still available as an interim solution, which at the moment has to be used in the following cases: 

(1) Capacity requirements shall be created by MRP

(2) For creating MRP lists.

———————————————–

MRP live differs from classic MRP in the following aspects: 

* MRP live does not write MRP lists. 

* Multi-level, make-to-order planning (transaction MD50) is not optimized for HANA. 

* Individual project planning (transaction MD51) is not optimized for HANA.

* The creation indicator for purchase requisitions is not available in MRP Live. MRP Live always creates purchase requisitions if the material is procured externally. 

* The creation indicator for delivery schedule lines is not available in MRP Live. MRP Live always creates delivery schedule lines if a valid delivery schedule exists.

MRP-Live Limitations

** The actual benefit of MRP-LIVE will depend on the following: MRP features used, Number of materials planned using MRP-LIVE, Number of materials planned using Classic MRP, Number of low-level codes.

In MRP Live, following functions are not supported:

*BAdIs no Longer Supported

* MRP Live does not support net change planning in the planning horizon. The planning horizon is ignored.

* Multi-level, make-to-order planning (transaction MD50) is not optimized for MRP Live.

* Individual project planning (transaction MD51) is not optimized for MRP Live.

* The new MRP Live is designed to be faster but will not support all these existing business processes right away.

Custom-Code check –

LONG LIST of checks…..…..

MRP Live is implemented in SQLScript running on the database server as opposed to classic ABAP code, which is performed on the application server. Any enhancement or BAdI implementation of the classic MRP run does not work with MRP Live. A new set of AMDP BADIs will be available for MRP Live from SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1603. BAdI implementations of the classic MRP have to be translated into AMDP BAdI implementations if still required. list of BADIs

PP Simplified Sourcing

MAJOR Logic change & Simplification makes ERP sourcing and PP/DS sourcing become more similar.

The different sources of supply are pretty symmetrical.

Sources of supply have a temporal validity, a quantitative validity, a deletion indicator, and a “relevant for automatic sourcing” indicator.

The sourcing logic can treat the different sources of supply in a uniform way 

Quota arrangements can be used to prioritize any of the possible sources of supply

Purchasing info records are proper sources of supply.

The SAP S/4HANA MRP can select purchasing info records without source list entries. It is sufficient to define the supplier information of a material in the purchasing info record. 

Production versions make sure BOM and routing fit together 

Production versions have always been the only in-house production source of supply integrated with APO PP/DS. With production versions as the only in-house production source of supply, ERP sourcing and PP/DS sourcing become more similar. 

Purchasing info records, contracts, and delivery schedules have always been the external procurement sources of supply integrated with APO. With purchasing info records being proper sources of supply, ERP sourcing and PP/DS sourcing become more similar

A unified source of supply model is the basis for future innovations in sourcing

Impact on Customer Coding

If you implemented BADI MD_MODIFY_SOURCE in SAP ERP, then one should check if the intended functionality still works.

Also check changes in alignment with “MRP-LIVE” – Optimized MRP processing.

SCM-CIF Interfacing with CIF

CIF does not work with LONG Material Number

“The Core Interface which is used to transfer master data from S4HANA to another application like SAP EWM, SAP TM or SAP SCM does not support the new long material numbers.

In case the automated exchange of master data using CIF is required the material number field length extension has to be deactivated in the following IMG-activity: In Customizing for S4HANA, choose -> Cross-Application Components -> General Application Functions -> Field Length Extension -> uncheck: Extended Material Number”

LE-TRA Transportation Management

LE-TRA Using LE –TRA is not supported. Instead use “Strategic Solution” SAP Transport Management.

Integration Scenario :

(SAP TM 9.3 SP02 & SAP S4/HANA, on-premise edition 1511  SP0, FP1)

Supported Scenarios :

* Order integration

* Invoice integration

* Sales order scheduling

Not Supported Scenarios :

* Self-billing is currently not supported. : In SAP S/4HANA, the setting to activate the self-billing process is not available in master data. This will be resolved with SAP S/4HANA FP1.

* Invoice document creation/printing is not supported for forwarding processes (LSP scenario; SD based). Billing simulation (print preview) and printing of billing document created for SAP TM are not supported.

* Intercompany billing is not supported. Automatic creation of intra-system supplier invoice and posting to agency business are not supported.

LE-WM W/h Management

Usage of LE-WM not supported. Recommendation is to use “Strategic Solution” – SAP Extended W/h Management (SAP EWM)

Integration Scenario : SAP EWM 9.3 SP03 and SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511

Supported Scenarios

* SAP EWM 9.3 can be connected to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 and supports the same scenarios as with SAP ERP Enhancement Package 7

Not-Supported Scenarios

* The returns process for stock transfer orders between two EWM warehouses via SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition does not fully work. However, you can use a new stock transfer order to reverse the process. This will be resolved with SAP S/4HANA FP2.

Billing Output Management Simplified output management in SD Billing

With SAP S/4HANA a new output management approach is in place. The target architecture is based on Adobe Document Server and Adobe Forms only.

Billing documents that are migrated from legacy systems and for which NAST based output have been determined, can be processed with this technology. For all new billing documents the new output management is used.

Therefore, in the area billing / customer invoice you need to adapt the configuration settings related to output management.

Contract Billing Contract Billing

Contract Billing is not available in SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511. If you used Contract Billing in SAP ERP and plan to move to SAP S/4HANA, you have to remodel your business processes.

    Hi Monika,

    Thanks for listing the new features along with their limitations in different process areas. It will be a very helpful document if it is updated as we go along and S/4 HANA unfolds in the market. Great work !!

    With regards,

      Thanks Mrinal. Sure – the idea is to keep this document “live”.

      I do plan to add  — the technical, the UX & the Analytic aspects to the listing – against process areas. – I hope it doesn’t become too cumbersome 🙂

        Outstanding work Monika. We are being asked to port our ERPsim business simulations, currently working on Suite on S4Hana, to 1511. Because our simulator automates many “back office” transactions in SAP, while accelerating time (1 day happens in 1 min.), impact assessment is complex. I would very much like to exchange further with you on this if you are interested. ERPsim4Hana is being used globally by SAP pre-sales since June as an alternative to demos.

      As per SAP S/4HANA Product RoadMAP & SCM Roadmap — SAP S/4HANA 1511 will work with SAP SCM (side-care deployment) integration –

      In 1511 version, as seen, the efforts is towards “optimizing the code and streamlining the business process” – such that the S/4HANA “logic” becomes similar to PP/DS.

      Production versions have always been the only in-house production source of supply integrated with APO PP/DS. With production versions as the only in-house production source of supply, ERP sourcing and PP/DS sourcing become more similar.  Purchasing info records, contracts, and delivery schedules have always been the external procurement sources of supply integrated with APO. With purchasing info records being proper sources of supply, ERP sourcing and PP/DS sourcing become more similar. 

      A unified source of supply model is the basis for future innovations in sourcing.

      ERP Line-Balancing and Sequencing : The classic sequence planning transactions are still available but will be replaced in a future S/4HANA release by a PPDS based solution.

      MRP Live is a prerequisite for the future production planning and detailed scheduling PP/DS solution in SAP S/4HANA. However, currently MRP-LIVE has some restrictions (not all functions of classic MRP are incorporated in MRP-Live)

    Hi Monika,

    your entry for FPS01 regarding industry “Defense & Security” refers to wrong restrictions. You currently mention the restrictions from the “Aerospace & Defense” SAP note 2234353.

    Correct would be the restrictions from SAP note 2254377 for Defense & Security. Could you please adjust accordingly.

    In case you got your information from a different asset it would be great if you could let me know from where, so that this could be corrected as well.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Reinhard

    great document. One question. If S4 allows 40 char mtl number and APO product master is 40 chars also but the CIF does not support 40 chars, then how do I integrate my APO system with S4 if I want to use 40 chars numbers ?

    Hi Monika,

    Can you tell us about the additional currency feature of SAP S/4HANA FPS02 ? Need to understand about the new innvations in this area.

    Thanks

      “Additional currency feature”  in Material Ledger :

      Latest trends in material management aim for improved and more flexible valuation methods in multiple currencies and parallel accounting standards while simultaneously reducing required system resources and improving scalability of the business processes. Since the data model of the Material Ledger module supports these business requirements, it was chosen as the basis for material inventory valuation in the new solution SAP S/4HANA.


      You need to migrate the Material Ledger even if you are already using SAP Simple Finance (that is, you are migrating from SAP Simple Finance to SAP S/4 HANA Inventory Management).

      In addition, you need to migrate the Material Ledger even if you are already using the Material Ledger in your source system.

      If you performing

      an upgrade from S/4HANA 1511 to S/4HANA 1610, no manual IMG Material Ledger data migration is necessary.

      It is very important to distinguish between Material Ledger, in its role as an inventory subledger in Accounting,

      and business feature Actual Costing. Material Ledger, as the inventory subledger, valuates material inventories

      in multiple currencies and GAAPs in parallel. In addition Material Ledger is a base prerequisite for the use of

      Actual Costing. With Actual Costing you can evaluate your material inventories, work in process and cost of

      goods sold with weighted average unit costs that are being calculated after the fact by evaluating business

      transactions of one or several posting periods. Also other features, e.g. actual cost component split, are

      provided by Actual Costing.

      Even though Material Ledger is become obligatorily active, Actual Costing is not. Activation of Actual Costing is still optional.

    Hi Monika,

    I´m implementing S4 1511 but when i go to tcode OMJJ to review standard movement types i noticed that they are incompleted, i mean, the next tabs are empy:

    Short text
    Accounting grouping

    Reason for movement

    OMJJ - movement type 101_01.JPG

    OMJJ - movement type 101_02.JPG

    OMJJ - movement type 101_03.JPG

    For ECC i never had to costomize anything here but i´m not sure if this is different in S4 1511 so i want to ask if you know what should i do or if this is something that Basis missed in the intalation.

    Thanks in advance for your support.

    Hi Monika,

    About TM features, i consider that the first point is covered because the FP1 was already released, can you confirm that?
    On the other hand, where can I found more information about the not supported scenarios?
    * Invoice document creation/printing
    * Intercompany billing
    I don’t understand how SAP will cover this points.

    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    I have heard that 1610 includes MDG but this seems to fly in the face of the suggestion you have here for 1511

    MDG-S : After the conversion to S/4HANA, customers using standalone SAP SLC system & communicating with SAP ERP have to use MDG-S (Master Data Governance for Suppliers) for supplier distribution. The MDG-S license is not part of the SAP S/4HANA. & implementation is separate project

    Can you confirm the status of MDG with 1610 and any appropriate notes?

      SAP S/4HANA 1610 has  “Embedded MDG”* in CORE.

       

      Master Data Governance (MDG)*

      »Embedded in SAP S/4HANA 1610

      »Product as unification of Industry material and Retail Article

      »Simplified Master data (Customer, Supplier, Product)
