User Application to build Material Hierarchy
Hi, I would like to help users to build a hierarchy without having to maintain the hierarchy externally on a spreadsheet and upload it. So I would like an application that would baskically present a list of materials and allow the user to drag the material to a hierarchy node.
1. Do most people just upload their hierarchies to create them?
2. Is there anything out there that would help the users build a hierarchy like I mentioned?
3. If I was to build this with Web Dynpro ABAP does anyone know any of the hierarchy tables I would need to populate or any of the standard classes I could use?

there is an application that does what you want, it is BW
go in transaction rsh1 select 0material and start building.
nevertheless maintaining a hierarchy on articles could be very long.
answers to your questions
1 -in general hierarchies that are loaded are the common ones that are delivered with standard extractors, but you can build it directly in BW, or use sets in ECC and generate the datasource for hierarchy
2-BW tx rsh1,2 and 3
3- i don"t remember the names for articles hierarchy (i guess you speak about industry solution) but have a look to table like T161 or T one hundred
