Determination matrix for Org Structure

Hi,

The Org structure determination is a very critical step in setting up the ECC system. Is there a tool / standard questionnaire that can be used to create a determination matrix so that the org structure can be designed based on the requirements captured in this matrix ?

Would appreciate if the forum can share any such details.

Thanks

    Hi,

    In the ASAP Methodology, there was a R/3 Structure Modeler that seems to correspond to what you want.

    The tool was supposed to be used in the Business Blueprint phase.

    IMHO the decisions for structuring of the organization structure will be taken indeed during the Business Blueprint phase of the implementation.

    The common sense says: Start small (by default one Sales Organization, one plant, one Distribution Channel, etc.) and depending on you requirements you will find that you need to extend the organizational structure.

    It is critical to understand the impact in master data of defining an extended organization structure, because you will need to maintain the master data afterwards.

    Example: If you create different divisions, you will have to create the customer in each division, but not the material (because each material has a unique division). In Sales, will you use common distribution channels and/or common divisions?

    My recommendation: Document this decision in the Business Blueprint (Word document) and justify the reasons for defining the enterprise structure and the philosophy behind it.
