Creating Work Centers

Procedure

You can create work centers when you want to add new work centers to your
organizational plan. You can also create new work centers by copying existing ones.

  1. On the Organizational Management screen, choose Expert Mode _ Work Center. The Maintain Work Center screen appears.
  2. In the Plan version and Work center fields, enter data as required.
  3. Under Infotype name, choose Object.

Changing Objects

Procedure

You can change organizational units, jobs, positions and work centers when you want to edit their object abbreviations or object names. Abbreviations and names are maintained in the Object infotype (1000). To change tasks, see Changing Tasks.

You cannot change the validity period assigned to an object using the Change function. For this, you must use the Delimit function. To change the validity period of several objects at the same time, use the report RHGRENZ0 (Delimit objects).

  1. On the Organizational Management screen, choose Expert mode _ <Object>. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.
  2. In the Plan version and <Object> fields, enter data as required.
  3. Under Infotype name, choose Object.

  7. Save your entries. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.

Displaying Objects

Procedure

You can display basic data for organizational units, jobs, positions and work centers if you want to review rather than edit them. This includes the abbreviation and name, the validity period, language key, and status of an object. This information is stored in the Object infotype (1000). To display tasks, see Displaying Tasks.

  1. On the Organizational Management screen, choose Expert mode _ <Object>. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.
  2. In the Plan version and <Object> fields, enter data as required.

Copying Objects

Procedure

Copy organizational units, jobs, positions and work centers if you want to create new objects by duplicating objects that already exist. Creating objects by copying can save you data entry time. To copy tasks, see Copying Tasks.

When you copy objects, you can also copy all appended infotypes. This can be helpful if objects have the same attributes. The report RHCOPY10 (Copy Object Using Selection List) also allows you to copy objects.

You can also include additional infotypes in a copy request. This is not possible in Infotype Maintenance. You must use the report RHCOPY00 (Copy Objects).

  1. On the Organizational Management screen, choose Expert mode _ <Object>. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.
  2. In the Plan version and <Object> fields, enter data as required.
  3. Choose <Object> _ Copy. The Maintain Plan Data: Copy Object dialog box appears.

  5. Choose Copy object. The Copy Object dialog box appears.
  6. Choose Yes. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.

Delimiting Objects

Procedure

You can delimit organizational units, jobs, positions and work centers when you want to change their validity periods, so that the end date occurs sooner than stated. This can be necessary, for example, when you plan to eliminate an object due to restructuring. To delimit tasks, see Delimiting Tasks.

When you delimit objects, the system delimits any infotype records appended to the object, to the same date.

  1. On the Organizational Management screen, choose Expert mode _ <Object>. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.
  2. In the Plan version and <Object> fields, enter data as required.
  3. Choose <Object> _ Delimit. The Maintain Plan Data: Delimit Object screen appears.
  4. In the Delimit date and Historical rec. fields, enter data as required.
  5. Choose Delimit. The Validity Period dialog box appears.
  6. Choose Yes. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.

Deleting Objects

Prerequisites

You should delete organizational units, jobs, positions and work centers only when you want to erase all record of an object from the database. When you delete objects, the system deletes all appended infotypes as well. The system keeps no historical information. To delete tasks, see Deleting Tasks .

Deletions should only be necessary when, for example, you incorrectly or accidentally create an object. To change the validity period of an object, use the Delimit function.

Procedure

  1. On the Organizational Management screen, choose Expert mode _ <Object>. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.
  2. In the Plan version and <Object> fields, enter data as required.
  3. Under Infotype name, choose Object.
  4. Using the tab pages, select the status of the objects you wish to delete.
  5. Choose <Object> _ Delete. The Maintain Plan Data: Delete Object dialog box appears.

  7. Choose Delete. The Delete Object dialog box appears.
  8. Choose Yes. The Maintain <Object> screen appears.

Changing the Status of Objects

Procedure

You can change the status of organizational units, jobs, positions and work centers if the planning status of the object has changed in the organizational plan. Status changes occur for several reasons. For example, a planned object may be approved, and require activation. To change the status of a task, see Changing the Status of Tasks.

When you change the status of an object, the system applies the new status retroactively, to the beginning of the object’s validity period.
