Best Business Practice for Usage of Business Partner

Dear all, is anyone aware of a Best Business Practice for the usage of Business Partners ? Just as an example: how to model death of a business partner, business partner in liquidation, business partner bankrupt, ....

Today it seems there are many ways to model and each customer might implement it differently (status, lifecycle, BDT extensions, marketing attributes, ...). So that is why customers are asking for a best business practice guide. Any hint would be highly appreciated. Regards Frank.

    Hi Frank

    Death Date is a standard field on table BUT000 (DEATHDT)

    There are a number of Financial services component views which could possibly have the fields you seek for Liquidation or Bankruptcy. Unfortunately I cannot recall the table name right now and do not have access to a CRM system. Log onto the SAP CRM WEB UI and select "Financial Services" Role. Select a Business Partner and they components I speak should be available as standard.

    Hope this helps.

      Hi Frank

      For CRM Enhancement on the Business Partner and Transactional Objects, the safest way (and Best Practice way) to extend these objects is by using the AET Tool.

      This would be your starting point.

      Application Enhancement Tool - SAP Library

      If it's just a matter of adding a field, then this can all be accomplished using the AET Toolset without writing a line of code. If you need to add some additional logic around the new field then you'll need a Techncial Consultant to modify the AET generated classes / methods, etc.

      There are a vast number of other online resources, SCN, Youtube videos, etc

      Let me know if you need any further information.
