Serves to combine and categorize several industries into a group.


You can create different industry systems, each with its own catalog of industries, whereby an industry can be assigned to several industry systems.

You have to select one industry system as the standard industry system. This is then automatically displayed in the initial screen for the maintenance of industry data.

You can define an industry system along with its description in Customizing. You can assign several industry systems to a business partner.

If you choose the button All Industry Systems, you can access all the industry systems defined in the Customizing using the input help.
