Stock transfer order scenario in APO

Hello APO expert,

I'm testing stock transfer order process in APO.

1. I created material XXX in plant A and B in R/3.  Procurement type for XXX in plant A is defined as "F" with special procurement

type 40 (Stock transfer).  Plant B is defined as supplying plant for plant B.  MRP type for this material is X0 (External planning).

2. I created sales order for material XXX plant A.

3. I created integration model in order to send related master data and transaction data in order to send from R/3 to APO.

4. I created transportation lane with start location B to destination A.

5. Sales order could be sent to APO.

6. Run SNP heuristic in APO.  Normal purchase requisition with source location A was created in APO. 

How can stock transfer order be created in APO by SNP heuristic?

    Hi Kenichi,

    STO is not generated by a SNP heuristic. You can only generate STR's (Stock Transport Requisition) with SNP heuristic run.

    You can generate STR's either by running SNP heuristics on Manfacturing Plant(Location B in your case). Or you can run Network SNP Heuristics on Location A.

    Then, you can convert the generated STR to STO either in APO or R3. To do it in APO, you have to run Deployment,followed by TLB run. Or to do it in ECC, you may have to use t-codes like ME59 for converison of STR to STO etc.

    Thank you,

    • Hi Kenichi,

      What can you see under "Source location", "Means of Transport" in the Created Purchase Requisition at location A after heurisitcs run?

      If you find Location B in the "Soruce Location" that means, STR is created. If you find Blank, then there is something wrong with T-lane Setup.
