InfoObject Hierachie

Hi,

I have a general question for Hierachies by BW InfoObjects. I want create some InfoObjects for DP Planning.

When is it necessary to create hierachies at InfoObject? How does a hierachie later in the Plannungsbuch? Can I only select later within the scope of the hierachy?

Thanks in Advance

Oliver

    Hi Oliver,

    I would strongly advise you to avoid hierarchies entirely. They perform poorly, requiring a full table scan of the base InfoObject at the application layer instead. Consider using Characteristics, and using Attributes to create a hierarchy like structure.

    Let's us know your final answer!

    Hi john,

    thank you for the response.

    The question for me was and is, how I can prepare the system to plan sets.

    If I understand your message correct, the right way is to create an InfoObject Set1 with Attributes (Product 1, 2, 3, 4, ...)

    Right ?

    Regards

    Oliver
