    The planning package takes the characteristics and key figures selected in the planning level and serves to further restrict characteristics whose values have not already been restricted in the planning level. At the same time the planning package describes the data area on which the planning functions are to operate.


    You create planning packages to define subtasks within the overall planning process and to keep these subtasks separate. As you define the content of the various planning topics by including a selection of key figures and characteristics in planning levels, you can allocate the planning subtasks you have defined as planning packages to the relevant employees and have these processed independently. In this way you can break down the sales planning according to customers by including the characteristic customer in the planning level. You can restrict the characteristic in different planning packages in such a way that each package can be processed by the employee who is responsible for the relevant customer.

    A planning level contains a quantity of characteristics and key figures from a planning area. It determines the level of detail of the planning. Planning area characteristics that do not exist in the planning level are used for aggregation. Selections can be specified for the characteristics in the planning level.


    Multi-dimensional integrated planning mostly takes place on different planning levels. The content from these planning levels is connected using bottom-up aggregation and top-down distribution. You establish this connection by creating planning levels whose characteristics refer to each other as regards content (for example, region u2013 country, product group u2013 product), and technically too, with compound characteristics. You create several planning levels for the same general planning task. The planning levels differ in the level of detail of the planned objects (for example product line, product group, product). Key figures, which you plan on the detail level (for example products), are automatically aggregated to higher levels (for example product group).

    When addressing a specific business issue you will not need to access the entire amount of characteristics and key figures available in the InfoCube specified in the planning area. You create planning levels in order to limit the characteristics and key figures to those that are relevant to the business issue. You can also make characteristic value restrictions in the planning level in order to further restrict the area that the planning functions refer to.
