Dear,

please follow Sikinder's advise...

and as Nasim correctly said

if you maintain location as sub area it will be easier bcoz opening a new branch or new location is not so frequent.

now for example:

PA-Hyderabad

PSA-Head office

PSA-HR Dept

this way you can create..i think its clear now

Hi,

You can use it according to your requirements. What you must know that personnel area and subarea has some functions :

- as a selection criteria for evaluations.

- as an entity for authorization checks.

- can be use to generate default values for data entry.

Here is some examples of personnel area and personnel subarea.

Personnel Area : Company Name.

Personnel Subarea : Region/State/Province.

Personnel Area : Head Office, Branch Office

Personnel Subarea : Province, Region

Personnel Area : Directorate, Business Group

Personnel Subarea : Finance,Sales,Logistics

Hi,

If the company is having operations only in one location then you can go with HR, FI, etc., as Personnel Subareas. Bcos in SAP Personnel Areas n sub areas are one of the main criteria for payroll

If the company is having operations in 2 or 3 cities in one country, then it is not advisable to go in such a way.

Hope you got the point.

Revert if you have any further queries.

Have a good day...

Hi Mohammed,

A personnel subarea is an organizational unit that represents a specific area of the company organized according to certain aspects of personnel, time management and payroll. The following business subtasks belong to the personnel subarea:

U can define Dept. as pers sub area. Technically there may not be any issue.

Lets other experts comment

No , Always have PSA as per Location wise.

Technically the Formation of Departments in a company will be more so all the times you cannot group them each time

Hi,

Personnel Subareas are the subdivision of Personnel Area and it is a must to define a pay scale area, pay scale type and one holiday calendar for each personnel subarea.

It is also important to keep the control features in mind while defining the personnel sub area:

1. Specifying the country grouping; this controls the dialog for entering country-specific personnel data and the setting up and processing of wage types and pay scale groups in Payroll; within a company code, the country grouping must be unambiguous

2. Assigning a legal entity to differentiate between the individual companies from a legal point of view

3. It specifies groupings for Time Management. This enables you, for example, to set up work schedules, substitution types, absence types, and leave types on the basis of a specific personnel subarea.

4. The personnel subarea is a selection criterion for evaluations.

5. The personnel subarea is used to generate default values for pay scale area and pay scale type for an employeeu2019s basic pay.

6. It specifies the public holiday calendar.

7. Defining personnel subarea-specific wage types per personnel area

8. It assigns a legal person for payroll.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Dear

Creation of PA/PSA is not complex we should also check the Feasibility of Grouping for Enterprise Structure , As said by KK_HCM if it is single location it is good , Even though i suggest to have ur Enterprise Structure based on Location

We Cannot Group the Entries based on the department every time if it is Created.....That will be Cumber some job and most of the companies will go for Location wise

Ex: PSA grouping for Holliday Calendar

Say if employees in HR department in BGLR will have holiday on Nov 1st but not employees in MH will not have holiday on that day so in that case wht is the solution

Siki is absolutely right. Defining Location as Pers Sub area is more preferable because client can create a department any time. In that case you have create a sub area and maintain all the groupings for payroll and Time management.

So if you maintain location as sub area it will be easier bcoz opening a new branch or new location is not so frequent.
