Organization Structure & Master Data Objectives


Upon completion of this topic, you will be able to:

Understand the SAP Organization Structure Define the Elements of FICO Understand the SAP FICO Hierarchy Describe the integration of FICO with other SAP modules Understand Master Data

17

What is SAP Organizational Hierarchy?

What is hierarchy?
The informational elements necessary to manage and control business activities within application modules.

What do the elements in the hierarchy represent?


The companys legal (ex-company code), physical (plant), managerial (sales org) and control structure (cost center).

Why does hierarchy matter?


Hierarchy expresses organizational design and facilitates control and reporting.

How is hierarchy defined?


Some elements are defined globally across the organization (Ex Controlling Area, Operating Concern (Customer/Sales Profitability Database), some are at a business (Profit Center) or at a site level (Plant).

Future Company Codes

Profit Centers
SAP Definition
The Profit Center is a subdivision of a business organization that is set up for internal management control purposes. Profit Centers are used to categorize revenue and expense by responsibility within the organization. These areas of responsibility (Profit Centers) could be based upon regions, functions, or products.

Definition pertaining to this implementation


The company requires P&L and balance sheet reporting at the plant level, hence a profit center is created for each plant. Profit centers are also created for other responsible profitability areas. Profit center number convention is as follows: 1st position: geographic region (1=NAR, 2 = SAR, 3=Europe, 4=AP) 2nd position: number block is assigned to different business segments/units 3rd to 5th position: sequential number within each business segment/unit. Initial assignment is in increments of 10 (general rule).

37

Profit Centers Hierarchy


SAP Definition
The standard hierarchy is a tree structure that displays the organization of all the Profit Centers in one Controlling Area. Profit Centers can be grouped in a standard hierarchy so that they roll into a user-defined management entity. All Profit Centers must be assigned to the standard hierarchy.

Definition pertaining to this implementation


One standard profit center hierarchy is defined to reflect the current management reporting structure. Additional Profit Center hierarchies (Profit Center groups) can be created so that more than one roll-up view is possible.

Cost Centers
SAP

Definition

A Cost Center is the lowest organizational unit representing a clearly defined location where costs are incurred. Cost centers are linked to a single controlling area, a single profit center, and to a single company code.

Definition

pertaining to this implementation

Cost Centers are established for each facility within a company code. The criteria for defining the companys cost centers is:
Organizational unit where managerial responsibility can be clearly defined Organizational unit where costs incurred in the proposed area are significant enough to justify its establishment Cost Center should have a responsible person assigned Cost Centers cannot cross physical locations (i.e. profit center) and/or legal entities

Cost centers will be linked to a profit center to gain a divisional view of expenses.

Functional Areas

SAP Definition
A functional area is an organizational unit within accounting that structures your business organization according to the requirements of Cost-of-sales accounting. Each cost center is assigned to one functional area, and is irrevocable after cost posted. Functional areas allow a higher level of summarization of operating expenses in reporting. Cost Center categories are used to map to the functional area.

Definition pertaining to this implementation


The company will use a number of functional areas in order to achieve functional Profit & Loss analysis. The functional areas will be derived from the respective cost center master record. Functional Area is defined with a 3-digit number.

44

Functional Area Hierarchy

SAP Definition
A functional area is an organizational unit within accounting, which structures your business organization according to the requirements of Cost-of-sales accounting. Functional areas allow a higher level of summarization of operating expenses in reporting. Cost Center categories are used to map to functional area.

Definition pertaining to this implementation


The company will use a number of functional areas in order to achieve functional Profit & Loss analysis. The following functional areas will be derived via the substitution rules referenced above. Functional Area is defined with a 3-digit number. See next slide. Functional Area Hierarchy is defined for summary level reporting purposes.

Document Posting

The SAP document principle ensures that every transaction


posted in each module creates a document.

All documents are cross-referenced.


A material movement document is linked to its related FI G/L document Inter-company documents are linked to the corresponding documents in each company code G/L documents are linked to cost objects if related to P&L accounts

Parked Documents

Used to enter and store (park) incomplete documents without


carrying out extensive system check.

Two reasons to used Parked Documents


To change any of the entered data without having to reset/reverse a document To comply with approval procedures

64

Open Items

Unfinished transactions are Finished when:


The identical offsetting amount is posted to the account The offsetting amounts are cleared manually or automatically
For example, a vendor invoice that has not been settled remains in the vendor account as an open item until it is paid. Accounts that can be managed on an open item basis G/L Accounts G/L Accounts Customers Customers Vendors

65

Account Clearing

Procedure by which the open items belonging to an account


are indicated as cleared (paid).

Open items can be cleared if the credit amount used to clear


the item equals the debit amount of the item to be cleared.

Posting in the GL to Create Documents


In this example, a posting for depreciation expense and accumulated
depreciation is made in the FI ledger.

As the depreciation posting is an expense, it also creates a posting in the


CO ledger. The FI and CO ledgers will be in balance with each other.
