Our company operates on multiple instances of SAP 6.0 globally and we are currently developing an Open Item Management Global Design and Blueprint. Our goal is to ensure we are taking a consistent approach to the utilization of Open Item Management and related projects. We would like to understand if other companies have implemented a standard approach to the utilization of Open Item Management and what data standards are followed in this process.
Does your company have a standard approach/process implemented for the utilization and activation of Open Item Management on GL Accounts?
Which option best describes your companies utilization and activation rules for Open Item Management on GL Accounts (and why)?
We do not utilize OIM consistently in our COA
We utilize OIM across the entire Balance Sheet with no restrictions
We utilize OIM within specific GL account ranges
We are also very interested in seeing any documentation that you may have on Open Item Management - best practice overviews, design/blueprints and Pro's/Con's/Considerations of activating Open Item Management on GL accounts.
Hi Linda - we use open item management on certain accounts (e.g. Goods Receipt/Invoice Receipt) accounts and use standard functionality
I highly recommend that your accountants stay on top of the open item management and be involved to understand what needs to happen.
