Reporting relationship of people when a managing position has many holders

Hi experts,

SAP OM and PM allows multiple holders of a position. I have 2 questions about that actually:

1. Is it common in implementation to have more than 1 holders for a position?

2. usually, a position reports to the managing position of its org. unit. If the managing position has multiple holders, how can we know who reports to whom? any other configurations solve this issue?

3. Similar problem happens when an org.unit has more than 1 managing position. But that can be solved by S-S relationship.

Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Alex

    Hi Alex,

    - Create separate positions for each employee - (one- to - one relationship between positions and persons) --> SAP Best Practice

    - To standardize positions make them be derived from jobs.

    If I were you I would stick with SAP standard and do not very much use S-S relationship.

    Very interesting question Alex.

    I think its best to use one holder per position in case you want to go for position based reporting structure.

    Let the experts comment.

    see we can have multiple holders for 1 Position

    the issue will come in case of Trigerring Work flows based on the cheif of the Department and also in some cases where we take the head count report based on Positions

      that's also a problem for workflow base on org.structure.

      any ideas about the issue? what are the recommended practices? Thanks.
