SEM BPS problem

Post by malikna » Mon May 19, 2008 2:56 am

Dear Friends,

We are facing a problem in our planing application which we are building

on BW-BPS 3.5.


We have Two planing levels

1) Material, Sales office, Plan qty
2) Material, Sales Office, Region, plan qty

When we assig planing values.According to levels.

1) Material = 10001, Sales office=1100, plan qty = 1000

after that when we try to assign values to level2 manually like

2) Material = 10001, Sales Office=1100,Region=R11,Plan Qty = 500

Then level 1 plan qty become 1500 automatically.

Means 1000 of level 1 and 500 of level 2 also included in it.

i am unable to understand this behaviour of BPS.

any help higly appricated.

Seems that you need to understand how works a cube...

If you enter 2 values at a different level on BW or BPS, the two values will be aggregated on the higher one if you look at your data at this level.

If you don't want this behavior, there are many possibilities depending on the process you try to implement and how you want to link the values between the two levels. The easiest one may be to add the notion of Version as an axis of your cube (one version for region users and another one for your Sales office users).
