Multiple Planning area can linked to single MPOS

Hi Experts ,

Based on my current set up , I had created fiscal year variant , tagged to storage bucket profile and accordingly create new time series bucket profile .

To add this new time bucket profile , I need to first linked planning area to storage bucket profile then only it can able to read the relevant time series .

So , my question to everyone is whether it is possible to create multiple Planning area based on one single MPOS . If yes , then what will be postive & negative results of it in future . Is it recommended by SAP ?

Considering above case , can anyone recommend best solution ?

    Hello, it's totally OK to use different planning areas based on one MPOS. Different planning areas do not share any time series data (of the key figures), which means you will have differnt data in the planning areas for the same CVC. So it means you will have more data to maintain. If you do not want to original planning area, which means you create the new planning are only for applying a new storage bucket profile, you can use /sapapo/tscopy to copy the data to the new planning area and make the original one obselete.

    • Hi, this depends on how you use your system. If you want to make the two planning areas always the same, you'll have to perform the copy whenever the original planning area changes. If you want to make the original planning area obsolete, then you just perform the copy once when you decide to use the new one instead of the old one.

    Hi Sesh Kumar,

    Currently we use 2 DP Planning areas (for different Sales Orgs) based on the same MPOS. The same has over 100K CVCs for both sales orgs and so far we did not face any issue..

    I really do not know, if SAP has any restrictions/recommendation for this..may be you should create separate PAs in your Dev system and test..

    • Hi Sesh,

      It is perfectly OK to create multiple planning areas based on a single MPOS so long as the intent of individual planning areas are not lost. We have planning areas where we have more than 225000 CVCs and it has not hindered us in anyway except some times when there is a slow response. I also know of implementations with 500000+ CVCs and they were on SCM 4...
