1. Multiple currencies in
costing-based Profitability Analysis
You can plan in CO-PA in either the operating concern currency or
the company code currency. In Customizing, you specify which of
these currencies you want to store the data in for each version.
When you copy the data from one version to another, the system
translates the values if necessary. This means that you can set
plan targets in the group currency and then distribute the values
top-down to the individual company codes, so that detailed planning
can continue there in the local currency. Or you can add local
plans from different company codes to a single group plan.
2. Customer enhancements for planning
Customer enhancement COPA0006 lets you implement your own planning
functions. This enhancement is available for the functions "Copy
plan", "Change plan" and in manual planning. For examples, see the
release note for manual planning.
You can store all the parameters required for running the automatic
planning functions as a variant for the relevant function. You can
then execute the functions with these variants later. This is
intended to help prevent wrong entries on complex selection screens
and make it easier to carry out the functions repeatedly. Variants
are available for all the complete planning functions (copying,
forecasting, top-down, changing, deleting and transferring to SOP
4. Flexible characteristic
In addition to single values or asterisks (*), you can now also
enter intervals or several single values in the characteristic
selection for the automatic planning functions.
5. Copying profitability segments
You can copy the plan data for a profitability segment to another
profitability segment. For example, you can use the data for one
product as the default for a similar product.
6. Enhanced distribution functions in
Now you can also use calculated values (such as "Net revenue =
Revenue - Rebates") as the basis for distribution. You can also
distribute the data value-field specific. This means that each
value field in the reference data serves as the basis for the
distribution of the same value field in the data being
Previously, top-down distribution "redistributed" all the data
of the segment being distributed, even if some had already been
distributed to the lower level. Now you also have the option of
only distributing the data that does not yet exist on the
