Q

Clean up CC driven security

With organizational changes, our customers are looking to gain tighter control over Requisitioning, Releasing & Reporting. The current MM release strat. and authorizations keep things at the plant level and we'd like to move it down to the Cost Center level. Other than creat/maint unique AGs covering the CCtrs managed by each Release/Reporting. Are there any options you can provide for us? Our current thinking is to look at tying security into our HR-PD side or the perhaps the CCtr hierarchy?

Oh boy. I have probably heard of more situations trying to clean up CC driven security then I care to remember. If you are determined to use it and clearly it would be the best option given the scenario you mentioned. I would strongly encourage you to work with your Finance group to redefine the CC hierarchy to support it. That will be your best bet.
