Person responsible for work center

Hello ,

Can you tell me please the main use of person responsible ?

Is it the labor working in the work center or the person responsible to maintain information about work center in SAP ( some one who's working only on the system ) ?

Hi Marouane,

Logically thinking there is not much to change in work center if maintained correctly being master data. But on the other hand depending business scenario's:

  • companies increase there capacities, then in this case this person has to update work center accordingly.
  • if on default values you have maintained parameters with "reference indicator", this means values in routing can't be changed. If you make any change then it would impact all routing. So one can manage & monitor is required. Example if control key changed from X to Y for any reason. So one should be aware of consequences.
  • costing wise are the cost centers correct and assigned activity types are correct and updated ones.

In nut shell ensuring right master data for this work center which is being used in one or n routing.

I hope it's clear for yourself.
