External Services Management (MM-SRV)

Criterion which determines the processes of data collection and data reduction in the Logistics Information System (LIS). Examples of such criteria are sales organization, purchasing organization, plant, and material.

Objects form part of the information structures in the Logistics Information System. It is with reference to objects that performance measures are cumulated here at defined intervals.

Every object has object values. For example, the object "sales organization" may have the values "sales organization South" and "sales organization North".

Personnel Management (PA)

Individual element of information that exists in the system.

Objects themselves are typically defined and maintained by users, although some objects, for example standard roles, come with the software.

All objects are categorized into classifications called object types. Objects that belong to a particular object type share certain characteristics, and carry a specific type of information.

In PD you describe the attributes or properties of individual objects by defining and maintaining different types of infotype records. The infotype records that may be defined varies according to object type.

SAP Business Workflow (BC-BMT-WFM)

Any type of related information which can be accessed uniquely under an identifying key. Most of this information is generally stored in an ABAP Dictionary table.

The definition of what an object is not general but depends on the specific context in which you use this term.

In particular, the definition referred to above does not indicate the complexity or scope of an object. Two or more objects may, in another context, be sub-object types of a composite object.

Objects are created at runtime and are the specific instances of a previously defined object type which have been assigned values.

Treasury Management (TR-TM)

Property, building or building part that serves as real estate collateral for a loan. When you enter the object data, you can enter the corresponding land register data. Objects are used as a basis for determining the collateral value.
