    Hi Sudhakar,

    The requirement class that gets determine in ECC is nothing but the Check mode in APO. However, the business event is something to do with the type of transaction that you are executing in ECC.

    For example, if you're creating a sales order -> Requirement class determined in R/3 + Business Event "A" will give you the direction to pick the Check insturciton in APO.


    Similarly, if you're creating a delivery document -> Requirement class determined in R/3 + Business Event "B" will give you the direction to pick the Check instruction in APO.

    You can look for various threads within SCN on "How requirement class is determined".


    Hope this helps.

    • Requirement class is not a direct configuration. It gets derived from various factors such as MRP type, material type, item category etc, please search for "determination of requirement class" in help.sap.com You will find good information.

      And coming to the question of checking rule, it is pretty kuch predecided within SAP that it will always be A for sales order.. B for delivery etc., You can identify this in SPRO config in ECC. You can also create custom checking rules to handle certain business scenarios.

      Hope this helps.
