BRF+ Architecture and process approach


1. I need some help regarding the expected max. amount of line items BRF+ can calculate in one purchase order? Is BRF+ performance depending on the line items in a purchase order?

2. Are purchase orders and sales orders "classical" applications where BRF+ is for rule calculation?

3. Is the BRF+ architecture / process, that for reports out of BI, BRF+ could access the sales order functionality in the ERP system? Or would it be necessary, that the rules need to be configured twice? In BI and ERP? What is here the recommended process / approach?

4. Is BRF+ system independent? Which means, once installed, it could also be used by external systems? Should the rules be created in the systems or in BRF+? What is the recommended way?

Kind regards

    Hi Jutta,

    these questions are to some extent redundant to the questions you asked here.

    ad1) Performance is highly dependent on what you do and how you do it with BRFplus. Concerning the pure amount of data parallelization is definitely an option, but has to be done outside of BRFplus namely when invoking the BRFplus function

    ad 2) I would say that calculation of that kind are classical use-cases for BRFplus

    ad 3) The rules usually reside in the system the data is located. You can however access either rules remotely (RFC, Web Service) or access remote systems from the rules (e. g. via ABAP in procedure calls)

    ad 4) Please take a look at the answer of the references question and on BRFplus to get a basic understanding of the deployment of BRFplus as part of the SAP NetWeaver (in contrast to SAP Decision Service Management)

    Best regards,
