CIF APO_DP


We use only DP and are in SCM 7.0. The forecast is transferred directly from DP to ECC.  We do not use SNP at all.The materials are CIf'd over from ECC to SCM. I am now being told that I do not need to CIF over the materials and this can be done using SBIW- Data transfer to Business warehouse.

The issue is that CIF model vai CFM1 has limited selection variables and we nned to restrict by some other materila master values and am being told that to do that I can use SBIW not CIF models.

Any thoughts/ suggestions on this?

Thansk,

Sarita

    Hi sarita,

    Somehow things do not look right. People are right when they say you don'e need to CIF materials from ECC to APO if you are using only DP. This could have been just loading your custom Material infoobject with both Key and desriptions from SBIW. Since you have already CIFffed the data what is the harm in continuing with it. At some point if you get into SNP or PP/DS you will need them.

    Thanks,

    We currently CIF over materails for forecast transfer back to ECC . I was told this ( getting materilas to SCM) can be done via SBIW- no need to CIf over. The reason for trying to switch this over is insufficinet fileds for CIF to SCM . We need more selection criteria in CFM1- integration models.

    Hope this clarifies the request.

    Hi, if you only use DP in APO, you do not need to CIF the product/location master data to APO, unless you need to "check scm master data" when you create CVCs for DP. You may also do not need to CIF (integrate) the PIRs between ECC and APO I think, you can just release the forecast result from APO to ECC directly. This can be done in /sapapo/rel_to_oltp, or DP mass processing job with a R/3 transfer profile. This is very easy and practical. DP does not see those integrated PIRs at all, because DP only sees time series data, but the integrated PIRs are liveCache orders.
