Output Determination in SAP SD

Output Determination in SAP SD is a crucial configuration feature in SAP Sales and Distribution (SD) that controls the generation of various documents and messages during sales processes.

  • It ensures the right documents are created with correct content, format, and recipients, based on specific business rules and conditions.

How it works:

  1. Application: Identifies the business transaction triggering document creation (e.g., sales order, delivery).
  2. Output Type: Determines the type of document to be generated (e.g., order confirmation, invoice).
  3. Output Determination Procedure: A set of rules and conditions that control the output creation process.
  4. Condition Technique: Leverages SAP’s powerful condition technique to evaluate various factors for output creation.
