Work around for long running BOP Jobs

Dear APO-GATP/BOP gurus,

We are encountering locks and errors in our BOP results every day.

Errors can be seen below, they both pertain to same material:

Item Product/Item has not been updated, as the purchase order was locked

Changes not adopted due to different change statuses

What we did is that we split our materials into 8 ranges, just to prevent the long running. unfortunately, there are thousands of POs that has multiple items (mostly more than 50 items) and that is our constraint.

Please help how are we going to have it solved. Any work-around you might want to suggest?

We cannot restore the single variant job due to the fact that it will run long (more than 12 hours) and eventually fails due to connection/interface/etc error...

Thanks in advance!

    Hello Ezekiel,

    If the no. of updates are more in number, these things tend to happen.

    Why don't you implement EDQA functionality in your system so that system processes the GRs done by the reciept elements to assign the quantities in synch as per the business expectation ? By doing this, the no. of items that posts the updates back to ECC would be less in number.

    Also, choose the right timings for running the BOPs in your system. You said that you had splitted the materials in 8 groups ? Why don't you run BOP at plant level instead of choosing materials ?

    Hope this gives some insights.
