Hi Siva, I was unable to get this exercise done because I did not attend Friday class due to planned travelling and I am still waiting for the recording of the class since you previously agreed to send it to me over the weekend. However, the weekend is almost over, but I did not receive any response from you yet for my e-mails and voice messages that are asking to e-mail me the recording of the calss. In case I will not get the material soon I will not be able to continue with the classes since I missed the beginning of this very important new subject. Thanks

Write down the Organization Elements that you have created. Sales Organization ZSFO Distribution Channel ZV Division ZV Sales Office ZRSO Sales Group ZSG Plant ZSFO Storage Location SFO Warehouse ZSF Shipping Point SFSP Also write down the assignments that you have created Plant to Company code ZSFO to 1000 Sales Organization to company code ZSFO to 1000 Distribution channel to Sales Organization ZV to ZSFO Division to Sales Organization ZV to ZSFO The Sales area you have set up ZSFO/ZV/ZV Sales Office to Sales Area ZRSF to ZSFO/ZV/ZV Sales Group to Sales Area ZSG to ZSFO/ZV/ZV Sales Organization + Distribution Channel to Plant ZSFO/ZV to ZSFO Warehouse Number to Plant/Storage Location ZSF to ZSFO Shipping Point to Plant. SFSP to ZSFO

More quiz questions Can you assign multiple company codes to a Sales Organization ? If not why ? NO, A sales org is hirarchically under a company code. Company code represents an independent legal and financial enitity and a Sorg is with in a Comp Code. Can you assign multiple Sales Organizations to a company code ? If yes, give a business scenario. Yes. A company code can span a wide area like a country with multiple Sorgs East,West(region based), IBM, Federal etx(large accounts based) or a region with multiple countries US, EMEA (Europe.Middle East, AFRICA), APAC (Asia,Pacific) etc. with SOrgs for each of the sub-regions mentioned. Can you assign multiple distribution channels to a Sales Organization ? If yes, give a business scenario which would require such an assignment. YES. Typical distrib channels are Retail, Wholesale, Govt, Ecom, IntraCompany, etc. All of these channels are associated with Sales Orgs which are in turn defined most commonly by regions. Can you assign multiple divisions to a sales organization ? If yes, give a business scenario which would require such an assignment. YES. Divisions in SAP are defined by products that they are associated with or the products define deivisions. A sales org defined by regions most commonly is associated with all products in that region and hence all divisions. Can you set up multiple Sales Areas using the same Sales Organization ? ( For example, can you set up 1000/01/01 and also 1000/10/01 ? ) YES,Since Sales org is associated with multiple dist channels and divsions, a all combinations of Sales org/Dis ch/div can bes etup based on requirements in that Sorg. Can you assign a single sales office to multiple sales areas ? If yes, why would you want to do that ? YES. It is practical to associate a Sales office to a Sales org but SAP doesnt limit. The sales office can be associated with all Sales areas of the sales org. Can a sales group belong to multiple sales offices ? If yes, give a business scenario which would require it Sales groups are hirarchically under a sales office. SAP doesnt seem to prevent same Sales grp being associated with different sales offices. A scenario is that a sales group has different responsibilities under different Sales Offices that are virtual like in Atlanta, there could be two Sales Offices under the same roof working on IBM account and South East region and the sales group works in both Offices. Seems like a stretch!!

Can the same shipping point belong to multiple plants ? Yes. Different plants can sometimes be inthe same vicinity or region and share a shipping point.

Hi Siva, Based in Germany ZA is a wire and cable manufacturing company, they produce different kind of cables both for general customers and for corporate clients. ZA wire and cables have different product range like general wiring, telephone cables, power cables, auto cables etc. In March 2011 they have started business in US and set a new legal entity ZAUS, the nature of work of ZAUS is little bit different than ZACO. In US so many cable manufacturing companies are operating and there is so much demand of quality raw material for cable manufacturing, ZA cables find US market ideal for providing raw material, they are focusing just corporate clients in US and instead of manufacturing cables they are manufacturing raw material ie PVC compound and copper road for cable manufacturing companies. 1, I have created two companies ZACO germany and ZAUS USA.
