You use planner profiles to control the planning process. These are structured hierarchically. You specify the planning layout used for each planning area, such as cost element/activity inputs, activity type/activity price, or statistical key figure planning. A planner profile must contain one planning layout for each planning area.

Profile items assign the planning layouts in the planner profile. Currently, each planning area must have exactly one profile item.

In a planner profile, you can set the following planning conditions.

The R/3 System includes the following standard planner profiles:
