System Impact

Hi All,

In my project,For various business reasons, we are looking to sett up the stores as plants u2013 meaning that we would follow the STO flow.

There are some 500 stores. This would mean that we would either configure 500 plants OR 1 plant with some 500 storage locations.

The STO process has some undeniable drawbacks: e.g. standard transit stock reports are only on plant level u2013 no distinction on storage location level.

I would ask your assistance in clarifying the following questions:

What is the system impact of configuring some 500 plants?

What is the system impact of STO between storage locations for 1 plant with some 500 storage locations?

Regards,

Kalpana.

    If the valuation does not impacts you can create stores as storage locations.If material valuation price is changes then you have to go for plants.

    If there is no impact on the price better you can create as storage location.If you create 500 plants sytem occupies more space.

    If you want to tranfer materials in ECC5 nad ECC6 you can use sto process storage location to storage location.

    I would not look at hardware aspects. ( I have about 500 plants in my system).

    transactions and transactional data is causing more issues than 500 entries a few tables.

    (I dont know why a plant shall update 16000 tables - this is just nonsense. And even there would be that many tables, it would jsut be 500 entries instead of 1, which is nothing compared to entries in table MSEG after a year live)

    We had meetings for several hours and days with members from finance, controlling, logistics, and other teams to evaluate to pros and cons.

    There maybe tax issues that you may not be able to solve easily if you decide it wrong. and this decision certainly cannot be taken here with the few information you gave.
