Coding Scheme for Cost Centre Hierarchy

Dear Friends,

Our company is in initial phase of implementation, right now we are defining coding scheme for our Cost Centre Hierarchy. In this regard I have some queries, please guide me with your precious comments.

1) Do we have to maintain uniform coding for all the nodes and cost centres i.e. maintaing Parent-Child relationship

eg. 1000 Company

1010 Operating Departments

1011 HR

1012 Finance

2) If we don't follow uniform coding, what are the consequences.

like maintaing cost centres / nodes and searching nodes/cost centres in the whole ERP envirement while posing transactrions.

3) We have right now arrond 3000 cost centres in our Hierarchy and will grow marginally in the coming years, my question is if we don't maintain parent-child relational coding than how we will be getting reports in range?

4) In my opinion, wouldn't be very cumbersome to design customize reports using (ABAP,SQL)?

I'll be highly grateful for your expert opinions,

Thanks & Regards
