Articles: Logistics: Distribution Center
In this user department, you define site-specific article data for distribution centers. You have the following options:
If you do not specify a distribution center in the header when creating or changing an article master record, the data is maintained for the reference distribution center and for all distribution centers determined in the listing operation. This data is referred to as identically maintained data.
If you specify a distribution center in the header when creating or changing an article master record, the data is maintained for that distribution center only. If you maintain this data differently from the data for other distribution centers, it is referred to as differently maintained data. It is not changed if you change data at a higher level, nor does maintaining data differently for this distribution center change data at a higher level.
Your company has distribution centers 0001 to 0100. You maintain logistics data differently for distribution center 0099 by entering distribution center 0099 in the header of the article master record, and changing the data.
For the same article, you maintain logistics data, but do not enter a distribution center in the header. The data is maintained identically for distribution centers 0001 to 0100 with the exception of 0099.
