    Dear ,



    The first option is correct as it is base on product line and second one is on material packing i think so ,


    But in my view the first division is correct and it shows that company deals in these main product.


    Division we can understand - A broad product range can be divided into divisions, and in the SAP system, you can also define a division-specific sales structure. You can make customer-specific agreements for each division, for example regarding partial deliveries or pricing. Within a division, you can carry out statistical analyses or devise your own

    To create new divisons it is better to copy the existing divisons...


    Go to SPRO and then to Enterprise Structure --> Logistics General --> Define,copy,delete, check divsion --> Copy, delete, check division --> Copy org. object.


    1 10 Beverage Glass Products (returnable bottle)


    2 20 Plastic Products (Includes Plastic,Tetra packing etc... /non returnable)


    3 30 Paper Products (Includes Canes)

    Hi Sherry,


    As far as I know, its better to differenciate as product wise instead of creating generic one. The better way to create division is as follows


    1 10 Beverage CSD(carbonated) Products


    2 20 Juices Products


    3 30 Water Products


    4 40 Scrap Products


    so that you can differenciate whether it is juices, water or something else. Where as the Pet products, Tetra products would be more generic in my openion as you can have juices in pet bottles also water in pet bottles.


    Note: to decide between the given two options is obviously based on your company/client business requirement.


    to create Division in SAP - SAP2020 gave the correct answer. As you might aware that, you need to assign the division to sales organization and then used in sales area set up in later steps after creation of division.
