What is layout module version?

Hello friends,

I am learning assortment planning and its very interesting how the planning is done in SAP MAP and can be viewed in SAP IS Retail Layout Workbench and further processed. But am a bit curious about the layout module version ? Can anyone share a few points on this one?

Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Jove,

    Layout Module version allows you to handle the articles within module differently. Let me explain you with example.

    I have a Layout module which contains 100 seasonal articles. Out of these 100 articles, some of the articles are winter products and remaining are summer products. Now I want to use Layout module for listing and would like to automate the listing of these articles with respective season.

    Here is the situation where Layout Module Version will help me a lot. I will define two version with respective dates in version definition. In each version I will select my products depending on the season. So now my module will have two version with two validity periods which will be used by system to list or de-list the article.

    There are many instances where layout module versions are used to change the position of product on shelf differently at different period.

    There is an additional optional in Layout module version. Within version, you can create variant with different combination of products. It all depends on business requirement and nature of products.

    I hope this is clear now.
