Here you check a list of all
characteristics that refer to fields in the order
(such as the order type, plant, or material).
The term "object characteristics" is used for these
characteristics. This differentiates between object characteristics
and the user-defined characteristics that you can create in
classification according to your own particular requirements.
Here you select the object characteristics that you want to use
for order selection and order summarization, and generate the
The generation process generates the
(objects: CO objects, class type: 013). The object characteristics
stored centrally are added to this class and become available for
order selection and summarization.
The object characteristics can be used to classify all orders
whose order type allows classification.
When you create an order, the system carries out classification,
updating a characteristic value for each object characteristic.
Performance in order classification can be improved if you only
update characteristic values for the characteristics that you later
want to use in order selection.
If you want to use further object characteristics later, you can
select these characteristics and start a recalculation run by
calling up this step again and choosing Edit ->
1. Choose the object characteristics
that you want to use.

The colors in the list show whether the characteristic has
already been generated. There are the following possibilities:
The field is marked as a characteristic to be generated.
This status is usually set when you
have copied data from another client. You must generate this
The field contains a characteristic that has been generated and
assigned to class SAP_KKR_CLASS.
For these characteristics,
characteristic values (such as the order number or the name of the
user) are updated to the order. You can use this information to
select and summarize the orders later.
The field contains a characteristic that is not to be
For these characteristics, no
characteristic values are updated to the order.
If you want to generate the
characteristic values for these characteristics at a later time,
you must generate the characteristics. If orders are already
present in the class, a revaluation run is scheduled which you must
release as a job. A revaluation run can also be scheduled with
Edit -> Revaluation run .
The field contains a generated characteristic. A revaluation
run was scheduled but has not finished.
When you generate the
characteristics, the system schedules a revaluation run as a job.
You have to start this job. In the revaluation run, characteristic
values for the characteristic are updated in orders that are
present in the system.
The characteristic is deleted in the background.
You have set the Delete
characteristic indicator. This means that the system
scheduled a revaluation run that will cancel all characteristic
values for this characteristic. However, this job has not yet
finished or still has to be started.

Before you can summarize orders or select them through
classification, you must activate classification for the order
types you want to classify. To do this, you must process Define
order types for production orders .
If you have already generated the characteristics for
classification in the source client, a client copy achieves the
The object characteristics for classification are generated in
the target client.
Class SAP_KKR_CLASS is generated in the target client.
If you make changes in the source client later, the object
characteristics in the target client are marked for generation
