release strategy

Hi guys,

Our requirement of release strategy for PRs is as follows;

the strategy should be triggered based on the following

1) PR document type

2) PR value

3) purchase group

4) user creating the PR

For example, if user1 is creating the PRm it should go to Manager1-HOD1-CEO and if it is created by user2 it should go to Manager2-HOD2-CEO like this.

Like the above, there will be more than 500 users creating the PR and in one combination maximum 2 users will be there.

WE are configuring four characteristics for the above four values for comm structure CEBAN and different strategies for different combinations.

If we use ERNAM for this scenario, we need to configure more than 200 strategies for PR. Is there any other way of doing this to reduce the number of release strategies or this is the only way ?

Also if we link the release strategy to HR module can we reduce the number of strategies to be configured?

Any ideas or suggestions?

    why are u using the characteristic for user?any specific reason?

    i ask u this becoz if the user who willbe creating the pr will also be having the release authorisation,that authorisation can be assigned thru basis person.and if the user willnot be having any release authorisation then there is no need to use him/her as a characteristic.

    regards,

      Hi Indranil,

      Thanks for the reply. In our case user creating PR will not have authorisation for approving the same. It will go to the next level only.

      Also without creating a characteristic for user, how can i configure the strategy ?

      CAn u elaborate?

    fine.lets think X-user(who willbe creating a PR)

    the release codes willbe based on Manager1-Manager2-HOD1-HOD2-CEO and so on.

    now lets say for a particular pr whoose document type willbe NB,ER (purchasing group),<1000 INR(value)---the release will go upto Manager1.

    for this u willbe using the release code of the Manager1only and while assigning objects u willbe choosing NB,ER,<1000 INR respectively for the characteristics.

    again for a particular pr whoose document type willbe NB,ER (purchasing group),1000-20000 INR(value)---the release will go upto Manager1and HOD1.for this u willbe using the release code of the Manager1 and HOD1 and while assigning objects u willbe choosing NB,ER,1000-20000 INR respectively for the characteristics.

    AND SO ON.............
