To maximise the planning benefits of the Organizational Management component, use the following planning tools:
To streamline your planning processes, use the statuses active, planned, submitted, approved or rejected.
To maintain multiple copies of the same or similar plans on the system, use plan versions. You can then plan and evaluate possible organizational changes without affecting the active plan version.
Use validity dates to define the lifespan of an object or object attribute.
Time constraints are used internally by the system to protect the integrity of information such as infotypes, subtypes and relationships.
Use aspects to filter out the type of objects that can be maintained, and the type of infotypes that can be maintained for each object.
