7.  Enterprise Structure Configurator
1.Enterprise :

•Enterprise is an ultimate legal holding company.
•Enterprise is mandatory and serves as an umbrella for the entire implementation and all organizations are created within an enterprise.
Divisions are Nothing But Group Of Business. Where we will do Like India or US..Etc...   
Here Divisions is Based on the Country (or) Based on the Companies also.
Companies may choose to represent product lines, brands, or geographies as their divisions
•Division manager typically reports to a top corporate executive
•Fusion Applications supports a qualified management segment and recommends that you use this segment to represent your hierarchy of business units and divisions
3. Business Unit:

It will Perform all our transactions Like Sales, Payables, Receivables, Invoices Etc....
Unit of an enterprise that performs one or many business functions that can be rolled up in a management hierarchy
•Normally, it will have a manager, strategic objectives, a level of autonomy, and responsibility for its profit and loss
•Use business units in the following ways:
– Management reporting
– Processing of transactions
– Security of transactional data
– Reference data definition and sharing
•Business function logically indicates a presence of a department in the business unit with people performing tasks associated with these business functions.
•Optionally, you can define a hierarchy of divisions, business units, and departments as a tree over HCM organization units to represent your enterprise structure.
•When a business function produces financial transactions, a business unit must be assigned to a primary ledger, and a default legal entity.
4.Legal Entity:
Legal Entities is nothing but a Organization. Where we want to Business Legally.
Legal Entity is nothing but where we register our company for the purpose of social insurance and payroll related  information.
•Define a legal entity for each registered company or other entity recognized in law for which you want to record assets, liabilities, expenses and income, pay transaction taxes, or perform intercompany trading
•Required to publish specific and periodic disclosures of your legal entities‘ operations based on different jurisdictions' requirements.
•Your legal entities can be identified as legal employers and therefore, are available for use in Human Capital Management (HCM) applications.
•Frequently, a business unit is part of a single legal entity.
•Division is an area of management responsibility that can correspond to a collection of legal entities.
•Divisions and legal entities are independent concepts.
•Legislative data groups are a means of partitioning payroll and related data. At least one legislative data group is required for each country where the enterprise operates. Each legislative data group is associated with one or more payroll statutory units
•Legal entities are mandatory.


Department is an organization with one or more operational objectives or responsibilities that exist independently of its manager
•Has one or more workers assigned to it
•Departments are mandatory because they track your employees
6.Reference Data Sharing:

RDS Means Reference Data Sets. It will Shares The Information Across The Business Units.
    * Information Like   1). Locations.
                                        2). Departments.
                                        3). Jobs.
                                        4). Grades. ....  
•Can be understood as buckets of reference data assigned to multiple business units
•Use reference data sets to reduce duplication and maintenance by sharing common data across business entities where appropriate

•Oracle Fusion Applications reference data sharing feature is also known as SetID
You begin by creating and assigning reference data to sets
•You will then assign the reference data set to one of more business units
•You can assign a separate set to each business unit for the type of object that is being shared
•For example, assign separate sets for jobs, payment terms, transaction types, and sales methods to your business units
•Make changes carefully as changes to a particular set will affect all business units or application components using that set 
Key Points :
Set enabled objects in HCM are: Departments, Locations, Jobs & Grades
•When you create these objects the Set is mandatory field, so they are always created within a Set
•With each Business Unit, you can associate only one Department Set, one Location Set etc
•Same set can be associated with multiple Business Units
•There is a Set available out of the box that is called Common Set
•Positions are not set enabled but are defined within a Business Unit.

7.Enterprise Structures Configurator (ESC) :

•An interview-based tool that guides you through the process of setting up a basic enterprise structure
•By answering questions about your enterprise, the tool creates a structure of divisions, legal entities, business units, and reference data sets that reflects your enterprise structure
•After you create your enterprise structure, you also follow a guided process to determine whether or not to use positions, and whether to set up additional attributes for jobs and positions.
•After you define your enterprise structure and your job and position structures, you can review them, make any necessary changes, and then load / rollback the final configuration.
In summary,
Create all the organizational structures at one time
•Create multiple configurations to test multiple scenarios
•Review the enterprise configuration prior to loading it
•Rollback an enterprise configuration after loading it.
