Message Control

Use

To be able to send system messages as user messages, you can create the link between error management and message control in Customizing for Product Cost Planning . You can specify the following:

  • Who should receive the message

  • Which role this person has (for example, mail partner)

  • How the message should be created and sent (such as by mail or fax)

  • When the message should be sent (for example, when the cost estimate is saved)

  • The language of the message

Features

You can define the parameters for message transmission for a certain message or for a group of messages. You have the following options:

  • Area of responsibility and functional specification

Here you link the control parameters for message transmission to a area of responsibility (such as Purchasing) and to one of the organizational units within the area of responsibility (for example, purchasing group).

  • Area of responsibility

Here you link the control parameters for message transmission to a particular area of responsibility (for example, Costing).

  • Application area and output number

Here you link the control parameters for message transmission to a particular message. The application and output number identify the system messages.

The system uses the following sequence when it searches for a receiver of a message:

  1. Area of responsibility and functional specification

  2. Area of responsibility

  3. Application area and output number
