Segment v/s Business Area

Hi All,

1) Client is using ECC 6.0 version and requesting for tallied P&L and B/S at Branch Level. Which is best solution, branches are mapped as Segment or Business Area.

There are 5 company codes and branches are no relation across the company codes.

2) Even client is asking Product Line Level tallied P&L and B/S.

If am using segment concept, then if I default the segment in profit center. Through this any posting happens to costcenter automatically statistical posting happens to profit center and segment. But since product lines are more, segment can't be defaulted in the profit center. If that is the case how segment posting will happen when material goods receipt, post good issue, billing and so on.

Please advise.

Dear Friend,

GO for segmnet wise only.

u can have P&L /B&S segement wise as well as Profit center wise.

for this you have to maintain Zero balance account in New gl.

then you can maintain profit center products wise and have the B&s /P&L products wise , /segment wise and at company code level.
