structures in hr

Currently Being Moderated

I have a question -

what are the different structures in SAP HR


Enterprise structure

Personnel struc.

Org struc  / org plan

wage struct

remuneration struc


as per my understanding  - org plan is model of organisation incorporating org units, positions jobs etc......while org struc, is just made of org units......now the question is what is the right answer if both the options are given?

    Following explanation will clear the doubt..

    There are 2 main structures in SAP HR

    1.     Org. Structure and 2. Admin Structure

    Admin Structure has been divided into two

    u2022     Enterprise Structure: Client (Org. entity and not the system client) , Company code, Personnel Area and Personnel Subarea.

    u2022     Personnel Structure: Employee Group, Employee Sub group, Payroll Area and work contract (applicable in SAP standard)

    Org. Structure is contains of the object like Org. unit, position, job, cost center, etc. and org structure is used to depict the org. plan of an organization on any time period.

    Org. plan will be changing based on the time periods and has different kinds of status/versions: Active, Approved, Planned, Submitted, rejected and active plan version will be the current plan (01) always. So org. plan is intend to provide the current plan of the particular time period for the Org, Structure.

    In IT0001 you are mapping to org. plan in order to validate time period of the assignment

    To answer your question following are the structures if HR

    u2022     Org. Structure

    u2022     Enterprise Structure

    u2022     Personnel Structure

    Hope it is clear and if you have still doubt is Org structure and Org plan please feel free to write.
