So far, we have created two applications. One to maintain employee specific Bonus Plans and a second to entitle bonuses for an employee. Until now the Bonus is only dependent on the net amount of completed sales orders.

Task: Reference standard business objects at custom business objects.

Example: At the Bonus Plan there shall be maintained products which are bonus relevant.
