    Hi

    Just to add more info provided by sap

    The Logistics Information System (LIS) is made up of the following information systems:

    Sales Information System

    Purchasing Information System

    Inventory Controlling

    Shop Floor Information System

    Plant Maintenance Information System

    Quality Management Information System

    Retail Information System (RIS)

    Transport Information System (TIS)

    The information systems that belong to LIS have a modular structure, yet have a variety of techniques that allow you to evaluate data. This type of structure also allows the individual information systems to retain their special features.

    The Logistics Information System allows you not only to evaluate actual data, but also to create planning data. The information systems provide an easy-to-use planning functions that are also supported by a forecasting function. As of Release 3.0, the planning functionality of the information systems and the component Sales and Operations Planning (SOP) were combined and enhanced to make one central planning and forecasting tool. For this reason, you will not find the planning documentation in this document, but rather in the document PP - Sales and Operation Planning.

    You can use the Logistics Data Warehouse in Customizing to design the Logistics Information System to meet your own requirements. This tool allows you to customize the setup of the data basis for your information system, to define the rules for updating the data and to generate the standard analyses for evaluating the data. The documentation for this tool can be found in the Implementation Guide for the Logistics Information System under "Data basis" and "Updating".

    The Early Warning System is integrated in all of the information systems and is based on the key figures of the information system. The Early Warning System supports the decision-making process by allowing you to target and monitor weak areas in logistics. It searches for exceptional situations and helps in the early detection and correction of undesirable situations.

    The Logistics Information Library is a further component of the Logistics Information System. The Logistics Information Library makes it possible to access key figures in LIS by using simple search strategies. In addition, the Logistics Information Library allows you to catalog the key figures.

    Hope this will clear ur doubt

    Vishal...

    Hi,

    Similar to tables, there are information structures available in SAP which can be used to retrieve data when and as required.

    For example S011 gives you an information about the Purchasing group based datas.

    Similary we have S012, S013, S015 with respecct to purchasing and with respect to inventory we have 9 info structures.

    We can even custom some of the info structures based on our requirement using MC21.

    Regards,

    DilL
