SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supply Chain Master Data Work Center
  2. Navigate to Locations View
  3. Search for KLM
  4. Click the Node to expand and list out sub locations.
  5. System loads for a lot of time and dumps after few minutes


The general recommendation is to not have more than 1000 LOAs under one parent Logistics Area.


For example, under the Location (KLM), create  parent Logistics Areas (KLM-01 to KLM-05) and in each parent Logistics Area  create thousand main Logistics Areas.
This will not throw any problems and will resolve the current issue and will also help avoid any future performance issues.

Note:Creating more than 1000 LOAs(Logistics Areas) under one parent LOA might have  subsequent impact during task confirmation processes, although system allow to create more than 1000 Logistics Areas.
