Capacity Consumption of Process Orders Query


Hi Forum,

The client has process orders passing from ECC to APO and the busienss user looks at the SNP Capacity planning book view to see the resource capacity load.

This was all working fine when the ECC scheduling type on the process order was either: 5: Forwards in Time, or 6 Backwards in time.

Yesterday there was a change in ECC where they starting using the scheduling type: 3 Only Capacity Requirements.

SInce thsi chnage APO has stopped recognising the capaicty consumption on the resources. The Process order still appears in APO SNP planning books, but not in the capacity book.

Is '3 Only Capacity Requirements' compatible with APO SNP?

When a process order was changed back to '5 Forwards in Time' in ECC COR2, it would instantly pass to APO and the capacity consumption would return.

Is there some SPRO config somewhere?

    Hi,

    Please read this.https://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp60_sp/helpdata/en/b1/c042aa439a11d189410000e829fbbd/content.htm

    With this i can say, the order may not have scheduled (e.g. lead time schedulling or something) but if you see the order in SNP. it should generate the capacity may be less.

    so i think it must have created the capacity but may be in different bucket than what you are expecting.

    Please check the order in RRP3 and see if you see the operations there.

    Hello SB

    Did you had any resolution with the scheduling type 'capacity requirement'? it does not capture capacity but is visible in SNP we too have similar issue and work around of changing to regular scheduling is working.

    Thank you

      Hi,

      If I can remember we did not find an APO based solution and had to revert some changes made in ECC and they stopped using scheduling type 3.

      Sorry I could not help further.
