3.1 Assortment3.1.1 Maintain General Control for AssortmentsUse

In the transaction WSS1 (General Control, Retail Master Data) you define some basic master data related parameters that affect several application areas in SAP Retail. Relevant for this building block are the settings that are related to assortments, which are grouped in subscreen Control, Assortments. Here you define: Which interface module you want to use between Assortment and Integrated Article Maintenance (Using a module other than the available standard module is a massive deviation from the standard and should not be done lightly.) If you want to work with without listing conditions (As listing conditions are a prerequisite for POS download and assortment list generation this indicator should not be set). The function module which performs subsequent listing/master data creation in cases where the article master data is missing in a transaction involving stock for a target site and subsequent listing is allowed for it. Whether you want an entry to be made in the system log if during the creation of article master segments in assortment maintenance functions no reference can be found and thus the article segments can not be created fully. If when processing the errors reported in the system log for missing article master segments, the system determines that some errors still cannot be solved, another entry is made in the log. Number of days that the log records for missing segments would remain in the system (if you have chosen to create such log entries). The function module with which you can carry out any further checks to see whether an article is allowed in a sales order or delivery (User-Exit). If multiple assignment of sites and assortments is active. When multiple assignment is active, a site can be assigned several assortment of type 'C' besides its own local site-specific assortment. If it is not active, there is a 1:1 assignment ratio between site and assortment, meaning every site has its own local assortment and cannot be assigned any other assortments. If the local (site-specific) assortments are taken into account in listing when using the mass listing processes (WSM4, WSM8). If you want to use time-dependent assignment of sites to assortments
