Relationships and Reporting Hierarchy

Hello all,

I am having some trouble with evaluation paths and designing reporting hierarchy for a client. I have created the table below, but am not sure if it is correct. Please advise on the most effective way to manage the hierarchy for reporting by using standard functionality/configuration if possible. Here is an example:

Under Org Unit: Executive Office, there are two positions with Aff 18, and one position each with Aff 06, Aff 04, and Aff 03. One Aff 18, Executive) is the head of the Org Unit, but the other Aff 18, Chief of Staff, reports to Executive. Then, Co-Division Head reports to Chief of Staff, Office Lead to Co-Division Head, Supervisor to Office Lead or Co-Division Head.

Org Unit: Executive Office

Aff 18 (Chief Position)=Executive

Aff 18=Chief of Staff

Aff 06=Co-Division Head

Aff 04=Office Lead

Aff 03=Supervisor

Client HierarchySAP Hierarchy/Evaluation Paths
The designation AFF is affiliation and does identify certain aspects about the position.Relationship CodeRelationship Bottom Up (A)Relationship Top Down (B)
AFF        18           equals a department head and is the highest position within a department012ManagesIs managed by
AFF        06           equals a division director.  Division Directors report to a department head
AFF        04           equals an office lead and reports to an affiliation 06
AFF        03           equals a lead supervisor or a lead employee and reports to either an 04 or an 06
All Other Positions

Also, if I try to create positions under an org unit, I do not see some of these relationships in simple/expert maintenance. Do I have some configuration to do before these appear for maintaining the hierarchy?

Thanks in advance!

Initially you have to design your Organizational units in then you create positions in each department then maintain relationships between the positions.

As far i understand you are root organizational units are departments under this divisions under this offices maintain your organizational units clearly later create positions in each organizational unit and maintain relationships between positions.

Since SAP supports relationships between cross organizational units as well.
