Work center Archiving/Deletion

Hi All,

I found a couple of threads on this topic, but none explain in detail the working of the transaction CR41. I am having a hard time deleting the work centers through CR41. Can anyone provide steps for the same. It will be a great help.

    Deleting a workcenter is painful, because you first need to ensure that this work center is no longer used in any order or routing. SAP note 26598 provides the following information:

    Before the work center is deleted, a check is made whether the work center is still being used in the system. This check also takes into account whether objects (for example, operations in routing) were possibly only deleted logically (key word deletion indicator or deletion flag).
    Before the work center can be deleted, these logically deleted objects first have to be deleted physically in the database by means of a reorganization of the objects in question.
    The check refers to the following objects:
    - Operations and suboperations in routings 
    - Order operations 
    - Backflushing
    - Task list headers (Plant Maintenance)
    - Equipment time segment and main work center 
    - (Plant Maintenance)Functional location 
    - (Plant Maintenance)Maintenance items 
    - (Plant Maintenance).
    The usage as reference in hierarchies and the usage of the capacities defined in the work center in capacity requirements is checked as well.
