Can someone give me an example of a product hierarchy. Which table and field is used to store this value?
The Concept of product hierarchy
The product hierarchy on the Basic Data screen is used to depict the competitive materials of competitor 1 in relation to those of competitor 2. Here, your own company and its materials are also regarded as a competitor and as competitive materials respectively. You can use this representation as a basis for market analysis.
You normally enter competitive materials using material type WETT. When entering your own materials as competitive materials, you can, however, display the product hierarchy on the Basic Data screen for other material types too.
As such, please note the following points:
1. If you have created materials at sales organization level, the system warns you on the Basic Data screen that the product hierarchy may differ at sales organization level.
2. When you create new records at sales organization level, the system proposes the product hierarchy from the Basic Data screen.
You can see the values of Product Hierarchy by Material in Table T179 and MVKE in field PRODH
I hope you are clear now
