Reorganizing Profit Centers in SAP ECC 6


As of ECC 6 EHP 5, SAP rolled out a functionality which allows for reorganization of the profit center on the core SAP objects in the Logistics and Accounting functions. This includes changing profit centers on Materials, Sales Orders, Cost Centers, Orders, Projects, AR, AP, and GL Open Items. With this functionality companies can update the core data in their SAP ERP systems to enable financial reporting which better aligns with how they manage their business today versus 10-15 years ago when they first implemented SAP. Learn how SPX Flow used this functionality to transform their financial reporting and enable full financial statements which align with a new management structure.

Attend this session with FI/CO expert Dawn Watts to learn:

  • An overview of how the functionality works
  • The technical requirements to utilize the functionality
  • Steps to reorganize profit centers in ECC 6
  • A review of a typical derivation hierarchy used for the profit center reorganization
  • A review of a typical project timeline for a profit center reorganization
  • Lessons learned from participation in two full life cycles of the profit center reorganization
