versions in mc87 or in md61

Hi, as I understand, when we create ind req, we need to create in inactive versions in mc87 or in md61 and when we transfer we need to transfer in mc74 in active version. please explain why we need different versions in mc87 or in md61. what is the practical use of these versions while creating. does it mean, the requirements (example) from 01.10.2013 to 30.10.2013, should be one version and next month should be another version, is it like that. do we need to combine expected requirements from different customers for one period and put it as one version or is there any use?. can we use same functionality for long tern planning too also? if so how to use the same. please advise.

    Hi Raju

    Different versions allow you have different scenarios on your planning, for example, one optmistic and on reallistic. You can flexibly choose which version shoul be used.

    Also, it allows you to work with different sceanrios on long term planning.

    You can use, for example, transaction MS64 to copy planning values between versions.

    It is not practical and it is not a common practice to separate each month on a different version.

    Hello Raju,

    with your question you touch two different planning levels in SAP, the sales and operation planning (SOP, T-Code MC..) and the Production planning (T-Code MD..). These two levels are separated. You can do capacity checks and optimistic and pessimistic senarios in the SOP and the production planning. That is why there are verions in both of these levels. When you are fine with the result of youre SOP you hand over the quantities of the "best" version to the production planning with mc74. Perhaps you want to do more checks, more detailed checks then in SOP, so you can copy to an inactive version in production planning and run one or more szenarios in long term planning.

    You can use two active versions in production planning to handle two different customers, but there is no connection between the customer code in the order and the planning version, so its not garunteed that the reduction of independant requirements ist correctly.
