Is it possible to Classify a Class?

We have many classes and it is sometimes very difficult to find the correct class to assign to an object (like a material). I was thinking that it would be great if we could search for a class using CL30N and also using the class search FM "BAPI_CLASS_SELECT_OBJECTS"

But I also think I remember reading somewhere that it was not possible to classify a class. Is this true?

If a class cannot be classified, then, is there an alternative way to search for a class?

If this question has been asked and answered, please direct me to it. I have searched and searched but cannot seem to find anything on the subject.

    Hi Larry,

    as far as I know there is no class type available to classify a class. Maybe you could customize your own class type for this. That could mean that you also have to create your own dynpro for the classification screen etc. I don’t know if there are some other things to consider.

    We are using keywords and class groups to organize our classes. There are search helps available for both. Therefore it can be used as a kind of classification.

    We are also using the function “Find class via Characteristics”. That can be used to display all classes which contain a specific combination of characteristics.
