Making Changes in Organizational Management

Each time you make a change in Organizational Management, the system checks whether or not this has had an effect on the organizational assignment of one or more persons. This takes place when you create or delete:

If the department switch is active (entry PPABT_PPABT in the Organizational Management Implementation Guide under Integration with Personnel Administration), an organizational unit is transferred to the infotype 0001 record. This occurs only if it has been defined as a department.

The system checks these persons to determine if the structure contains a cost center and a person belonging to different controlling areas, or company codes. If so, the system issues an error message.

When creating or changing infotype 1013 – which you can use to specify an employee group and subgroup for a position – you should only make entries that are compatible with the employee group and subgroup of the persons assigned to the position. If you enter incompatible data, the system issues a warning message.

Changes you make to infotype 1008, which can be maintained for positions and organizational units,and which contains data on company code, business area, personnel area, and personnel sub-area, have no effect on Personnel Administration records.

When the system completes the checks, the entries are saved in Organizational Management. The infotype 0001 records of the persons concerned are then read by the Personnel Administration database, changed in accordance with the Organizational Management transaction, and are written back to the Personnel Administration database.
