Best Practices for Loading Master Data via a Process Chain !

Hello Experts,

We have very large master data load that we have nightly (Full Load). i.e. 0DOC_NUMBER.

In order to speed up the load Can we restrict the selection on some criteria ?

Is there any best practices for loading Master data via a process chain ?

Any specific best practices to 0DOC_NUMBER ? Please help.

Many Thanks in Advance,

Sunil Patel

    HI sunil,

    If u have large amount of data , then better to perform Load balancing.I think that is one of the way to improve the data loading.

    Many companies include document level data in their BW systems. (As does mine). This produces long data load times IF you are loading and reloading years and years of data every time.

    But also document numbers are not necessarily monotonic (in sequence) when it comes to posting dates. In our company I changed our 'load everything' model to load just those documents that had a posting date (using attribute selection) within the current and prior periods.

    Alternatively you can use a delta master data load process.

    One important key... REMOVE time dependent attributes and make the master data non time dependent. This often helps to improve performance significantly.

    • Hi sunil,

      If u want to know whether the datasource supports delta or not . Then ROOSOURCE table will give the details of that behaviour whether the DS supports the delta or not .

      In the ROOSOURCE(in R/3 SYSTEM) table u have a field DELTA if that field left blank then that datasource doesn't support delta , else it will support delta.

      Yes.Load balancing is nothing but creating multiple infopackages based on different selection .

      Hope it helps,

      Thanx & Regards,
