Webi Prompt vs. Universe Prompt vs. BEx Query Prompt


I am wondering what the best practice is for placing my prompt variables. I understand there might be additional considerations, but let me try to use this as an example:

Fiscal Period (Mandatory, Multiple Selection)

Cost Center (Optional, Multiple Selection)

Material (Hard Filter = "Chair")

Could someone explain where I should place these and why they belong there? I've heard things like you cannot have Mandatory Prompts in a BEx Query if you are building a Webi Report on top of it. I am interested in how the prompts behave at each level and interact with one another. I am using Webi XI and BEx 7.0.

Thanks in advance,
