    New Plant Roll Out Details for FICO

    1) You have to check whether plant is assigned to Company code.

    2) If using Business Areas, you should assign BA to Plant in OMJ7

    3) Extend Accounting views to the new plant

    4) Any validation rules specific to plants to derive BA's should be configured for this plant also.

    5) Created Cash Journal for the Plant as we maintain Cash Journal per Plant.

    6) As Business Place is derived from plant automatically, assign the Business Place to the Plant.

    7) Include the plants in all the Z reports which are run based on plant.

    8) Check for the authorizations for the New Plant to the existing users

    If its helpful, plz assign points.

      profitcenters are linked in the material master to the respective plant. You can see that via MM03 --> Tba Folder "Sales: General / Plant Data".

      It will be stored in table MARC field PRCTR.
