POSDM : Aggregation Period and Aggregation Method

Hi Expert,

I have been trying to understand concetp behind Aggreation Period and Aggregation Method , I read post on SDN and Helo in POSDM custmizing but did not get clue.

As I understand , before task processing , transaction are grouped by Aggregation Period and later Aggreation Method process these task into packages.

Aggreation Period should be numeric , for example : Posting date but what happend in Aggregation Method.

Could you explain with some example since SAP's text explains on a higher level understanding.

    Aggregation Method plays a key role in terms of One-Step Processing Tasks.For eg.,if you want to Generate WPUTAB Idoc and there is an aggregation Method code which is specifically available to have the aggregation done based on the means of payment.

    SImilarly you can have aggregation method based on material,by sales item and qualifier and also with material&Conditions combination.

    You can see the difference when you choose 0000 - Code for Aggregation method for Task code 0013 - Generate Idoc WPUTAB and process.Later on change the Code for Aggregation Method to 0005 and you can see if in POS Workbench also.

    NOTE : You can also custom specific Aggregation Method - for eg, Aggregation should be done based on transaction type/sales item type etc.

    Hope it helps

    Hi ,

    Aggregation method is used for Aggregrating the Means of Payment/Tender Type and Sale Transactions in POSDM.

    Example :Sale Transaction

    Transaction Number 1:

    Article A Qty 1 Sale Price 100

    Article B Qty 2 Sale Price 200

    Transaction Number 2:

    Article A Qty 3 Sale Price 300

    Article B Qty 4 Sale Price 400

    If you use the aggregartion method in POSDM then the similar Article across transctions will be aggregrated and populated in the IDOC as the following :

    Article A Qty 4 Sale price 400

    Artcle B Qty 6 Sale Price 600.

    Same applies to Means of Payment where the similar Means of Payment will be aggregrated.
