'The period profile specified was not found' error in the planning log

Hello Colleague,

I have an issue regarding this period profile which is used for resource utilization alerts.

I have created a period profile at IMG (define period profiles for resourece utilization), and assign this profile to PPDS alert profile (average resource utilization field group). But the strange thing is when I try to use F4 to choose this period profile I just created, it doesn't wok, I get the information 'no entry available'. Then I just manually enterred this profile.

But when I run the rescheduling in the detailed scheduling board, I will get an error message in the planning log, says "The period profile specified was not found", message no.  /SAPAPO/RRP_PT304.

Do you have any clue what's wrong with my setting? Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Winnie

    Hi Winnie,

    Looks like you have created period profile in a different IMG path, for alert profile to get resource utilization alerts you need to create period profiles using T.code : RPMTB or IMG path APO-->Supply chain planning -->Rapid planning matrix-->Maintain period profile

    Please try this option, Hope this helps.

      Hi Winnie,

        The period profiles  which you have defined for resource utilization are used in the DS planning board charts. You assign this in planning board profiles

      And yes  as you said you dont need to maintain average Resource Utilization (period profile, underload alert from, and overload alert from) in the alert profile. just maintain the threshold values for the three types of alerts  and select the resources  in the resources tab for which you want alerts.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

    Hi Winnie,

    You can use this period profile only with RPM. Use tx RPMTB to create the period profile that can be accessed in the alert profile maintenance.

    Thanks,

      Hello Rajesh,

      Thanks for your reply.

      But I checked in the online help for PPDS alert, it says like this:

      Average resource overload

      The system can generate an alert if the average resource utilization in a period falls below or exceeds certain threshold values. You specify the periods by defining a period profile in the PP/DS alert profile. You define period profiles in Customizing for Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS).

      here is the link:

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_SCM700_ehp02/helpdata/en/c1/147a375f0dbc7fe10000009b38f8cf/frameset.htm

      If I want to show the alert (average resource overload/underload), I am wondering where I can assign this period profile.

      Best regards,

      Winnie
