APO projects


I had been in and out of SAP projects many times, in between projects when I sprinkle my resume with too much of PP skill stuff,I will be getting calls from recruiters and end up with a job within a a week or two, but when I sprinkle my resume with APO skills relegating PP to the lower pedestal, frequency of recruiter calls comes down twice in a month may be ,Why is that recruiters like PP dominated resume though you may have APO skills,I have heard from delivery managers out of 10 projects that we fetch 9 will be manufacturing projects ie PP projects ,1 will be an APO project .

Experts am asking you your comments on my observation out of sheer curiosity.

    Hi Rahul,

    In general since the planning can also be done in R/3 system, which is why not every project which has SAP R/3 implemented will have APO also.

    Majority of the SAP implementations involve R/3 modules (PP, MM, SD etc) as it's your execution system which is required for all organizations. APO being the advanced planning tool, only those who want to leverage it's additional planning capabilities implement it.

      yup DB ....probably it is ignorance- I overreacted to simultaneous planning,from your input i drilled down into CTM screens ,I could see the solution is well in place ,i need not have to strain my nerves with injecting an algorithm in MD01 ,in the settings i could see- run CTM for PPDS orders- ,that will solve my problem.thanks for your timely intervention
