    Hi Reddy,


    The LIS is a central integrated information system where one can create specific tables that are updated at specific stages and that can be used to report on values contained in specific fields. SAP has standard information structures for reporting purposes. The std info structures can be accessed via: Standard analysis. The reports use the followingSISSDLO characteristics: customer, material, sales org, shipping point, sales employee, and sales office.

    IMG menu path for SIS: IMG>Logistics General>Logistics Information System (LIS)

    The Logistics data warehouse is divided into two main sections: data basis and updating. Data basis is responsible for the actual design of the info structure, that is, what key fields are reported on or displayed. Updating is responsible for the updating rules used by the system, determining how the info structure is to be updated, and when this updating is to take place.

    Task 1: Create Self-Defined Information Structure

    Use transaction code MC21 (menu path Logistics Data Warehouse>Data Basis>Information Structures>Maintain self-defined information structures> Create) to create a Self-Defined Information Structure. Give a customer-range number 990 (any available number between 501 and 999). To make it easier, use ‘copy from’ to copy structure from S001.

    Task 2: Maintain Update Groups

    SIS IMG>Logistics Data Warehouse>Updating>Updating Definition>General Definition Using Update Groups>Maintain Update Groups

    You can use the existing system-delivered update groups. Use Update Group (UpdGrp) 1 for the standard order process of: SIS: Sales Document, Delivery, Billing Document and use UpdGrp 2 for the SIS: Returns, Returns Delivery, Credit Memo.

    Task 3: Maintain Update Rules

    SIS IMG>Logistics Data Warehouse>Updating>Updating Definition>Specific definition using Update Rules>Maintain Update Rules>Create Create (transaction code MC24). To make it easier, use ‘copy from’ to copy update rules from S001.

    Please make sure the Source information is properly updated for all the characteristics. Since you copied the rules, the sales order and item rules are defaulted too. Make sure appropriate changes are made for events VC (delivery) and VD (Invoice).

    Task 4: Maintain Statistics Groups

    Maintain Statistics Groups

    Maintain Statistics Groups for Customers, Materials, and SD Document Types etc. Most of the pre-defined settings are enough. Make sure that settings are updated for customized objects too, e.g., SD document types for your organizations.

    Also, make sure that the customer (sales view) and material Master records are updated with appropriate Statistics Groups.

    Maintain Statistics Groups for Customers, Material and Sales documents. Assign Statistics Groups for relevant Sales Document Type, item type, delivery type, item type, Determine Billing Document Types Relevant to Statistics.

    Update Customer Master for Statistics Relevancy

    Transaction Code XD02 (Sales view, field “Cust stats.Grp”)

    Update Material for Statistics Relevancy

    Transaction Code MM02 (Sales 2 view, field “Matl statistics grp”)

    Task 5: Assign Update Groups to Header and Item Levels

    Assign Update Groups on Header and Item levels

    For combinations of Sales Area (Sales Org, Distribution Channel, Division), assign Update groups (transaction codes OVRO and OVRP).

    SIS IMG>Logistics Data Warehouse>Updating>Updating Control>Settings: Sales>Update Group

    Update Groups at Item Level

    Update Groups at Header Level

    Task 6: Activate SIS Update

    Lastly, Activate SIS Update for the Structure (transaction code OMO1)

    SIS IMG path: Logistics Data Warehouse>Updating>Updating Control>Activate Update>Choose Activity as Sales and Distribution.

    Last update our SIS structure S677 with period as ‘Month’ and update option of ‘Asynchronous Updating (2)’.


    A1.Sales Information System Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


    The Sales Information System is a flexible tool which allows you to collect, consolidate, and utilize data from Sales and Distribution processing. It can be used at different levels in the decision-making process as a control and planning instrument, enabling you to recognize market developments and economic trends early on and to take appropriate measures.


    The Sales Information System is a component of the Logistic Information System (LIS), which contains a range of other information systems including those for Purchasing and the Shop Floor.

    All of the LIS information systems have standard structures and user guidelines and use a large number of data analysis functions that they access from the central system. Therefore, the information systems that belong to the LIS are described in the documentation for Structure link LO - Logistics Information System, while any special functions are described in separate sections of the documentation.


    From the mass of data which exists in the SD System, you can use the aggregation function to filter out the most important information to you, tailored to your needs. It is up to you to determine the depth of information you receive.

    Not only can you collect and consolidate actual data from Sales and Distribution processing but you can also create your own planning data. Comparing actual data and planning data can assist you considerably in your decision making.

    You can find more information about the functions in the Sales Information System in the documentation for the Logistics Information System under Structure link Sales Information System.
