SOP and integrational planning in SAP CO

Hello Experts,

How are you? I'd like to ask you how do you transfer your sales quantities from SAP COPA planning to SAP PP, so we can check, if these quantities will fit our capacities and delivery dates? As far as I know there are a few options availabe:

1) Manual MD61

2) Automatic via Excel upload

3) Automatic via Flat File or Text file

4) Automatic using SOP (T-code MC75 and MC76) and transfering the Sales Quantities from SAP COPA to SAP PP Demand Management (Inactive Demand Version), which is mapped to a LTP scenario in order to test the above descibed process (capacities and delivery dates).

The thing is that we plan some of our Material per Product Group and some per Product, there are a few options in SOP to transfer per Product Group or per Product.

My issue is that SAP PP part the SOP hasn't been implemented and hasn't been used at all. Could somebody explain me what is the major function of it? Is it used for the perposes descibed above? Do let me know and thanks a lot!

Sincerely Yours,

Georgi Georgiev

    Hello Georgiev,

    SOP is first step for LTP ( Long term planning) . We use Long term planning for Production , Inventory and Controlling ( activity planning for your KP26 activities) .

    Yes you can use COPA data for your SOP , for splitting the planned quantities by material because most likely in SOP you enter the data at product group level.

    Basically SOP to COPA to transfer list of materials and its value to derive revenue based on SOP to see report for monitoring, copare with actual in different versions.

    There are two options you can transfer from SOP to COPA or from COPA to SOP, but the result are same.

    Unless SOP is not implented in PP there is no use to transfer to COPA.
