Hi SRM Gurus
We are upgrading from SRM 4.0 to SRM 7.0.
The client wants to completely realign the present Flat structure of Product category to a Hierarchy form. Unfortunately SAP doesn't provide any drag and drop feature in COMM_HIERARCHY application so that the exisiting categories can be realligned. Also if I create a new Hierarchy and manually create a new structure of Product Category in it and then assign the same to the Purchasing application in COMM_PRAPPLCAT then I cannot further process the Open Orders that have the Product Category referring to the Old Hierarchy.
The issue is to have a new set of Hierarchy and also to be able to process the existing Orders that referenced the category that were attached to the old hierarchy.
Any inputs would be highly appreciated.
I have some requirement to implement Product Category Hierarchy from ECC to SRM system.
Hope you have done this functionality successfully, Can you please share configuration document with clear details to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is bit urgent hence sending this message.
1. old product hierarchy let it be there - you might pushed to new box.
2. new hierachy which you might have created upon the customer request .let it be separate and this can be used for procurement further.
my advise dont mess up both things.
with new hierarchy you can create a SRM business objects .. etc...
however you can request SAP for suggestions.
there are people every year they change the product hierarchy rules so every year they upload hierarchy and utilise the business new one and old one will be abonded for procurement and but remain same in the system for further reference.
