    hi,

    its better you join some good place to understand the things better. Perhaps a small doubt or a technical clarification can be made easily here but not a full course.

    coming to your question, How many sales orgs etc will totally depend on the business requirements. We can come to understanding of the org elements only after interacting with the clients.

    The sales organization is an organizational unit within logistics, that structures the company according to its sales requirements.

    A distribution channel is logical unit, through which the products and services of a company reach the customer. Like a direct sale, institutional, whole sale or retail.

    A division is group of product based on certain key attributes. Like a cloth store being divided into mens wear and womens wear. It again depends on how the business wants to focus on the products.

    Dear neetu

    A division is an organizational unit based on responsibility for sales or profits from saleable materials or services.

    Divisions have two main applications: They are organizational units for Sales and Distribution, and they are necessary for business area account assignment for logistics transactions in Financial Accounting. Divisions can be used to describe specific product groups and can form the basis for sales statistics, for example.

    One company code can have any number of sales organization. For example, If the client's activity involves multiple process of manufacturing units, then based on the process, we can create different sales organization but the company code should be one.

    thanks

    Hi

    the defn you can can find in amy material.

    to make you understand

    Its the Material Division or Product division.

    e.g all the food items like ,Jam , Sauces , ketchups, juices can be classified as FOOD Division

    similary we can have 2 wheeler division and 4 wheeler division

    to make it simple , its the divison of the product ,. so that our seeling and tracking becomes easy.

    regards
