    Hello Pontoise,

    If you want to in line with cost center hier in R3 then do not think to maintain it in BW. This will cause some integrity and maintenance problems.

    I recommend you maintain it in R3 and load to BW.

    What is the advantage to manage hierarchy in R3 for you, knowing that we have 3 source systems (SAP R3) ?

    What do you mean by manage in BI?

    The only time you need to manage the hierarchy in BI, is when you dont have a hierarchy created in R/3. if you have in R/3 and want to mirror the same in BI, it wouldnt make sense, as just loading it daily is much easier to keep both the hierarchies insync is much easy and effortless.

    Standard Hierarchies should be maintained in R/3 and loaded to BW and this is the practice.

    However, if you have any external chars in the cost cenrte hier like for example cost centre manager in the hierarchy, then you can do in BW.
