Maintain Statistical Key Figure Groups

In this IMG activity you create new statistical key figure groups or change existing groups.

You can combine similar figures in key figure groups. You can combine these groups into further groups, forming a statistical key figure hierarchy.

Statistical key figures are used:

You may combine statistical key figures used in the distribution/assessment framework as tracing factors into a single group.


Complete the IMG activity

Maintain Controlling Area.


1. Structure your statistical key figure groups in the controlling area based on your controlling requirements.
2. Enter the group to be created or changed and choose "Enter".
3. In the structure screen, select the node from which the group is to be extended and choose "Same level" or "Lower level".
Data fields appear at the selected location in the tree structure.
4. Enter a name and a text for the new node.
5. Confirm by choosing "Accept changes".
6. To assign values to an end node, select the node and choose "Insert value".
Data fields appear in the tree structure.
7. Enter a "From" value and, if necessary, a "To" value.
8. Confirm by choosing "Accept changes".
The selected values appear together with the name.

Note on transport

To transport statistical key figure groups, see the IMG under "Controlling: General".

Note on Validity Period

Note that groups have no validity periods. However, most master data is time-based.
