There are a number of tools you use in order to maximise the planning benefits of Organizational Management:
The status feature enables you to streamline your planning processes. You may use the statuses active, planned, submitted, approved or rejected.
Plan versions enable you to maintain multiple copies of the same or similar plans on the system. You can then plan and evaluate possible organizational changes without affecting the active plan version.
Validity dates enable you to define the lifespan of an object or object attribute.
Time constraints are used internally by the system to protect the integrity of information such as infotypes, subtypes and relationships.
Aspects allowed you to filter out the type of objects that can be maintained, and the type of infotypes that can be maintained for each object.
