How to exclude products in ECC rescheduling that are SCM relevant?

Hi All,

At each plant, we have materials that are SCM relevant (MRP Type = X0 AND Material Type = HAWA, ZICP, KMAT or FERT) and also not SCM relevant (MRP type PD for example). This is the exact criteria for us for SCM relevant location products.

When we go live with a plant, how to exclude the products in the ECC rescheduling variant that will go through SCM BOP and will not go through ECC rescheduling anymore? I checked V_V2 and I am able to filter / exclude by Material Type but not by MRP type. Initially, I thought that we will exclude the products in the ECC rescheduling variant but I did not realize that "getting" these products may not be that straightforward. One can get what are the location products that are in the active integration model and put these products in the exclusion filter for the ECC rescheduling variant but the maintenance of this will be an issue. Every time a new product is added, theoretically, we should change the variant in ECC.

One of my colleagues went to training some time back and he was told that there is nothing to do. You can leave the ECC rescheduling variant just the way it is. If it finds a product that is SCM relevant, it will just ignore it. I am not sure if this is going to be the case or not.

Could you please give your thoughts on this? This situation is not unique. How is this handled?

Thanks,

Satish

    Hello Satish,

    I have just tested this in my system and it looks like the program has been designed in such a way that those products that are interfaced to SCM ATP are not considered for ECC mass rescheduling. You'll see the following message ( though there is a product location combination that has been entered in the selection screen (which of course has integration model active for ATP between ECC and APO ).

    Also, I have looked at the program code to see if it is really checking and I found that it does by using the following routine.

    FORM CIF_IMOD_DESTINATIONS_ATPCHECK

    .........

    ............

    .........


    ENDFORM

    In any case, if it doesn't work - you can always use the filter user exit of V_V2 and exclude the products by having a check using the FM mentioned above. That way you don't need to maintain the variants in the selection screen. But, I think this is a fallback option and I feel that you might not use this for sure since standard SAP is doing it for you.


    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions. Close the thread if it answers your question.

    Hi Satish,

    Summary from Babus comment:

    Sales order items will not be selected inV_V2 if the "ATP check" for SCM was activated in the integration model for order item material.

    regards,

    Michael
