SRM 5.0 organisational structure

Hi Gurus,

is there a restriction for the number of persons integrated in the SRM (SRM 5.0) org. structure (PPOMA_BBP)? Is there a sizing guideline? We plan to expand the number of buyers and approvers up to 90.000.

Many thanks in advance,

    there is always restriction of the number of users and levels in org structure.

    if you maintain more than a certain level , you will encounter huge performance issues and you will not be able to perform any functions because of the time out errors.

    please refer to the SAP documentation and help for the restrictions regarding to the org structure
