Here’s a look at the transaction codes you can use within the Personnel Development submodule of SAP ERP Human Capital Management.

 

OOEC: Change Development Plan Catalog

You can use this transaction to create and maintain the Development Plan Catalog. Using this transaction, you can create both Development Plan Group (BL) and Development Plan (B) objects. While creating the development plan objects, you need to specify the validity period as well the qualifications and the proficiency required.

 

OOQA: Catalog: Change Qualification(s)

You can use this transaction to create and maintain a Qualification Group (QK) or Qualification (Q). The qualification catalog (containing the Qualification Group and Qualification objects) contains all the qualifications that are required for a company. A well-defined qualifications catalog is essential to define the personnel development and talent management processes. The qualification object can be tied to a person (P) or to a position (S) object. If a qualification is tied to a position, it is called a requirement. Requirements, qualifications, and competency all refer to the same Qualification Group (QK) and Qualification (Q) objects.

 

The qualifications catalog can be integrated into SAP ERP HCM Performance Management, SAP ERP HCM E-Recruiting, SAP ERP HCM Enterprise Learning Environment, SAP ERP HCM Organizational Management, and SAP ERP HCM Personnel Administration.

You can use this transaction to assign users to different authorization profiles. These assignments are time-dependent, and you can specify the validity period during the assignment.
