    Hi Srikanth,

    there was a RDS (OHP - Operational Headcount Planning) from SAP which provided almost all things for a common HCM planning. I have implemented this several times for my customers. Nevertheless, the RDS has been removed from SAP website due to many wrong implementations.

    To implement a HCM planning you should consider a lot of things:

    1. Whats the basis of data you want to use for? For myself, I used the standard SAP PCP planning in R/3 to provide all data required for HCM planning. The content itself delivers data structures which can be used in the HCM dataflow. It even provides the transactional data via data collecting in PCP and pushes it to the BW.

    2. What features should your HCM planning include. As a best practice, I used a top down approach to make guidelines for headcount, budget and fringe costs.

    3. In a next step I implemented things like creating new positions, assigning positions, terminating positions, promotions and so on (bottom up).

    4. Implement a budget and FTE planning, which refers to the fringe costs from top down planning and calculate the results automatically via script logic.

    5. Implement things like education costs, unpaid leave and so on.

    After all, simply create several reports based on the planning.

    This is how I implement HCM plannings. Please consider that all is about your data basis. With wrong data you get yourself in trouble creating a sufficient HCM planning.

    At the end, you can create a BAdI to retract data back to R/3.

    Hope, this little approach will help you.


    P.S: Try to get some information on web regarding SAP BPC RDS OHP (Operational Headcount Planning). You should be able to find some.
