Answer Key:

1.  b, c, d
A sales organization is an organizational unit in Logistics that structures the company according to its sales requirements.

Each sales organization represents a “selling unit” in the legal sense. Its responsibilities include product liability and any claims to recourse that customers may make. It is also responsible for the sale and distribution of merchandise and negotiates sales price conditions. Sales organizations can be used to reflect regional subdivisions of the market, for example by states or countries. A sales transaction is always processed entirely within one sales organization.

Each sales organization is assigned to only one company code. This company code tracks the business transactions of the sales organization from a  financial accounting point of view.

When a delivery is made for a sales order, a transfer posting from the company code of the sales organization processing the order to the company code of the supplying site is generated (if two different company codes are involved).

Employees can be assigned directly to a sales organization.

It is possible to assign it a reference sales organization so that only those sales and distribution document types found in the reference are allowed in the assigned sales organization.

2. c, e
The distribution channel determines how materials or services are sold and how they are distributed to customers, for example, retail, wholesale, self-collection.

Each business transaction in sales is linked with a distribution channel that is usually derived from data in the sales document header.

Distribution channels can be used to segment markets, for example, to separate sales activities for high-price and low-price segments or specify customers’ procurement rights for the segment in question (protecting the corporate image).

The following type of master data can be created for each distribution channel, for example: Customers, materials Specific conditions and pricing

If your scenario has several distribution channels, you can use a reference distribution channel to help reduce the maintenance required for master data. A sales organization may market materials through different distribution channels. You assign distribution channels to sales organizations in Customizing.

You use distribution channels to create sales areas (to refine the external organizational sales structure).

3. a
The division is an organizational unit in Logistics in the R/3 System. You can use divisions to organize materials or services, for example to form product groups or lines. The division establishes responsibility for profits from materials and services.

Each business transaction in Sales and Distribution is linked to a particular division. It is derived from either:

The combination of customer and sales area OR
The material master
You can define different sets of master data for each division, for example customer master data, pricing, or conditions.

Divisions help bridge the gap between Logistics (LO) and Financial Accounting (FI). Within Logistics, they play an important part in assigning accounts to business areas.

4. a, b e
In order to represent complex sales structures in a flexible way, all the sales relevant data in the SAP System is defined according to sales area.

The sales areas (sales organization, distribution channel, division) are derived from the master data of the sold-to or ship-to parties.

5. c,e
A plant is assigned to exactly one company code.

Each plant has a unique number, which remains the same across company codes. This means that plants that belong to different enterprises cannot have the same number. This is vital if you carry out cross-enterprise business processing.

A plant is divided into storage locations that contain physical stock. Each storage location is assigned to exactly one plant.

Sales organizations are assigned to plants. Each sales organization can be assigned to several plants (an n:m relationship).

Sales organizations are assigned to plants. Each purchasing organization can be assigned to several plants (an n:m relationship).
