Accounting View of Logistic Information
Overview & Procedure

Accounting View of Logistic Information (AVL)


SAP S/4HANA – Central Finance
• Replicates logistic data from source systems to the Central
Process / Reporting (central)
Finance system.

Accounting • Value in certain fields of the sales order, customer invoice


Logistic
Data
Error correction
Data
(ACDOCA)
AVL Data handling (AIF) and supplier invoice are replicated to support indirect tax
reporting for some countries within current design.
Business Mapping
How it works

SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server (SLT) • Data from logistics business objects is required in Central
Finance. A required subset of data is replicated. AVL uses
separate tables to store logistic data in Central Finance.
SAP ERP
• With the generic initial load functionality of SLT, it is possible
Process / Reporting (local)
to transfer historical logistic documents. SLT real-time
replication ensures the continuous update of AVL tables in
the Central Finance system.
Accounting Logistic
Data Data • AVL supports business mapping before data storage. AIF is
used in the Central Finance system for monitoring errors and
(automated) re-processing.

Upload postings with iRPA
During the close, many manual postings are done. Today, the accountant manually enters data from an Excel file into the
SAP system. In the future, the iRPA Agent can process the information.

Steps
1. User receives data from external system, adjusts data, and stores Excel files into shared drive
2. iRPA Agent scans shared drive (2a) and creates Journal Entries (2b)

✔︎
3. iRPA Agent moves files to Completed share drive

Trigger error resolution with iRPA
Scheduled automated closing jobs may result in an error (e.g. depreciation run with errors due to a cost center closed for
primary costs). In this attended scenario, the user triggers a bot to collect and classify errors, and distribute resolution to
relevant owners.

Steps
1. AFC executes automated job and updates application log / spool (e.g. depreciation run error due to CC closed for primary costs)
2. User receives notification and triggers iRPA Agent
3. iRPA Agent collects errors and classifies them according to error type, owner, and proposed next step
4. iRPA Agent sends resolution to user group (e.g. mails an Excel to cost center owners prompting them to unlock the CCs)
5. Users correct issue (e.g. unlock CC)

Statement of Direction

SAP S/4HANA Margin Analysis as strategic offering for profitability analysis

In S/4HANA, development efforts for profitability analysis only target Margin Analysis. There are no efforts to
enhance costing-based CO-PA.

Margin Analysis is perfectly integrated into the overall concept of the Universal Journal and is fully in line with
our Financial Accounting development strategy.

Margin Analysis has been extended broadly over the past releases and we continue to conduct new
developments in this area only, resulting in a superior solution designed to handle the needs of modern
businesses.

We see new customer installations choosing Margin Analysis only and an increasing number of replacements
of costing-based CO-PA with Margin Analysis.

SAP ERP Profitability Analysis (CO-PA)
Statement of Direction

Benefits of SAP S/4HANA Margin Analysis

Holistic and consistent financial information without reconciliation


The Universal Journal combines financial and managerial accounting and directly records all dimensions including custom fields.
Margin Analysis provides consistent financial information without any reconciliation needs along with a financial audit trail.
All innovations developed for the Universal Journal are immediately available within Margin Analysis.
A consistent approach ensures common usage of ledgers, currencies, valuations, predictions, and simulations, as well as their
availability in planning and reporting.

Real-time visibility into margins


All revenue and cost of goods sold postings are automatically assigned to the relevant dimensions at the time of posting.
Also in further scenarios, including e. g. project sales, the new approach assigns profitability dimensions immediately.
Together with real-time processing of former period-end procedures, this approach provides real-time visibility into margins during
the period.

Embedded analytics
Through S/4HANA embedded analytics dedicated operational reports for multi-dimensional Margin Analysis but also regular G/L
reports, such as P&L by market segments, make use of all profitability dimensions and allow for a drill-down to line item details
without data manipulation or data transfer to analytical applications.
