Hi Experts,

Our client wants to change Cost center structure in production system. They want to create new cost centers and maintain the new structure. The don't want to use the old cost centers.

Need your suggestion on what are the things to be taken care like currently used account assignments in Pos, Order, etcu2026.before changing the CCTR structure.

    I'm going from the assumption that your client requirement is justified and not just an idea 'let's try with new cost centres, maybe our profits will be better' 😊 You have to ensure the following:

    a) create a cost centre group which will replicate your current standard hierarchy (just in case)

    b) ensure that there are no open documents on the current cost centres. Try to close as much as possible; for each credit note, reversal, etc. the posting will be on the original cost centre and you have to accept it

    c) check your allocation cycles, validations, subsitutions if there is any assignment to old cost centres

    d) check user-exits, special developments for the same

    e) create new cost centres and incorporate them in standard hierarchy

    f) lock old cost centres with a potenital of deletion of their validity period, when you are sure that all the documents are processed
