Answering a question is not a big deal but answer like a consultant is a different affair. My list of top 100 SAP SD questions will enhance your logical reasoning in SAP SD module.
Here you go:-
Q 1. What is the purpose of Sales Area in SAP SD module? What will happen if you do not have Sales Area in SAP?
A. Sales Area is a combination of Sales organization, Distribution Channel and Division. It indicates the distribution channel used by Sales organization to sell products from a division.
Therefore, SAP SD has Sales Area a mandatory field for every sales transaction so that we can track the sales activities. All Sales Reports are based on Sales Area because Management should know which Sales Area is not performing well and find the root cause of declining Sales. The management can take action accordingly.
If we do not have this field in SAP then we do not have any way to track which product is doing well in through which distribution channel.
For ex: A smart phone is very good product but its sales is good through online distribution channel but it is not doing well in Retail Outlets. On the other hand a normal cell phone is doing well through Retails outlets but not doing well through online shopping websites. So the management can check the reports based on sales area and define strategy to increase sale of smartphone through retail outlet by some offer and increase the sale of normal cell phone through online websites by some discount.
If we do not have Sales Area then we cannot have such brilliant reports to initiate root cause analysis and define future strategy.
Q 2. What is purpose of Sales organization in SD Module? How will you give consultation to client on Sales Organization?
A. Purpose of Sales organization is to define an organization unit which groups and structures the company according to sales requirements. Sales organization is responsible for sale of every product and it also takes care of customer’s rights.
Therefore SAP SD is designed in such a way that all SD transactions such as Sales order, Delivery, billing documents have Sales organization a mandatory field. All SD related transactions are posted under the umbrella of Sales organization.
