Transporting PD objects

This is carried out using the program RHMOVE30.

It is best to run the program RHINTE10 before you move any objects through the transport system. This updates the tables that are common to both PA and PD. You can use RHMOVE30 to include your objects in the transport. Note that with the new object types in version 4.7 it can be a bit trickier to move the objects via transports using this method. Objects such as categories and templates etc within Appraisals (MBO functionality) are examples of this.

If you would like to check the integration objects, you can do so at any stage by running the report RHINTE20. This gives you the PD objects not in PA etc.

To run RHMOVE30, you can use the menu path:

System Services Reports

The program, like most PD objects, hinges on evaluation paths. Choose the object that you would like to transport. The evaluation path gives you an opportunity of taking other objects with the chosen object - the relationships go with it as well.

Transporting: Org Units, Positions and the Cost Center assignment.

Choose O(org unit) as your chosen object. Use o-s-k(from-via-to) as the evaluation path. From the list of available options, choose "kostos" as the path.

Click on the execute button. First test it (make sure that the test check-box is ticked)

The result will only show org units and positions. The relationships to the cost centers are there but the actual cost centers are not in the PD domain, hence the reason why you can't see them there.

Run the report again without the "test" on. Make sure that the check-box "objects to be transported" is on.

The resultant output shows you all the objects again (org units and positions) but this time they have a transport icon next to them, which is ticked.

Click on the transport icon to transport the objects.

To check and see what objects and relationships are going to be transported (once they have been released and are ready to be transported), use transaction code SE10. Click on the transport and use the menu path:

Request/task Object list Display object list

Double-click on the line and you will see what is going to be transported.

Transporting the Qualifications catalogue.

Use the evaluation path QUALCATA which is the complete qualifications catalogue.

Transporting all the Tasks

Use the evaluation path A* and B* to cover all possible relationships.

Transporting the remaining objects and relationships

Use the following evaluation paths:

All relationships around positions including reporting structures, infotype records etc

Use: A* and B* - put them in the same transport

All Relationships around jobs including the relationships to qualifications and tasks etc

Use: A* and B* - put them in the same transport

Org Mgt - Object Attributes

If you wish to find out the attributes of an object in Organization Management, you can do so using the menu path:

HR Org Man Tools->Database Display DB records

You may wish to find out which user created or last changed the object. Fill in the object type and object ID and tick the checkbox down below - "last changed by". This will give you the information detailing when the record was created and by whom.

Depreciation Meters

The depreciation meter used to be called the decay meter in earlier versions of SAP. It is updated far more frequently than it used to be in earlier versions of SAP. You can specify that the depreciation meter should not be taken into account, by a specific system user (user parameter PEH).

The validity allows you to show that certain qualifications (such as licenses) expire and have to be renewed regularly. If you have defined a validity for a qualification it will be shown against the person's profile for the duration of its validity.

Decay of Qualifications

Usually, one sets the decay for a qualification (for example 1 year). Anyone who is given that qualification will only have that qualification for a year from the start date of the record.

There is a report in T&E "Attendees Qualifications" (RHXQALIF) which shows the user which qualifications are no longer valid. Choose a date after which the qualification should have decayed, and it will appear in dark blue - to indicate that it is no longer valid.

Qualifications Catalogue and Profile Match-ups

To fully integrate PD and Personnel Administration, one needs to set the integration switch to on. You will then see a different view on IT 0024 in the employee's master data. You will be able to dip into the qualifications catalogue to assign entries for the employee.

You can create a qualification catalogue (OOQA) wherein you maintain all the requirements and qualifications. You can maintain the requirements of the position from PD (PPPM) and assign various qualifications in the positions profile.

You can run a profile match-up, between actual qualifications held by the employee and the potential requirements of the position.

In Training and Events you can set up the relationship A028 - Imparts Qualification (00ET) at the business event type level.

During a profile match-up run as a consequence of succession planning, if there is a qualification which is a deficiency for a particular employee and it is defined as an imparted qualification for the business event type, then the system prompts you to nominate the employee directly for the required training course.

How SAP calculates the Suitability Percentage

It is best described by way of an example.

If Joe has 3 qualifications and the position requires 4 then his suitability will be 75%.

Assuming Joe now has the 4 required qualifications. 3 of them have a scale of "Yes". Each of those will make up 25% of his suitability fit. So his suitability will be equal to 75% plus whatever "fit" he has for the 4th qualification.

If the 4th qualification has a scale which is made up of 5 values ranging from 1-5(1 being poor and 5 being excellent).

If the position calls for a 3 and Joe has a 1 then he is only given 1/3 of the remaining 25% which means that his suitability is then 75%+(0.33333x25)=83.33% Should he have been given a 2 for that qualification then he will have a suitability of 75%+2/3(25)=91.67% Having a scale of 3 against his name will give him a 100% match, because that is exactly what the position calls for.

Now if Joe is overqualified, i.e. he has a 4 or a 5 then that will either give him a suitability of more than 100 or less than 100 depending on the setting for the value "Quali Overq" in table T77S0.

PD - Graphical Reports

Information which you may not know about the graphics in PD on SAP.

Information about the object (position) in the organisation chart is available in the menu called EXTRAS. You can get quick info about the object in a separate window on the same screen. This can be used to differentiate between position types.

An object's shape can be changed but that is valid only in the current session. If you use the options and save it, the shape of all the objects change.

You can, however, differentiate on the status of the object e.g. planned / active.

It may be possible to modify the table and the underlying program to include sub group etc. as a decision parameter along with the object status. This can be done in the IMG under the step: Create Data Sets.

The entire structure can be printed to a file with extensions .psc or.cgm . This can then be manipulated using additional software.
