Scheduling margin key in APO - show the flows in the graphical planning board


I am aware that APO is not considering the margin key from the material master data but I heard that there might be a possibility to send it to or reflect it in APO. Is that really possible?

1. If yes, would it be possible to show the flows for planned orders & production orders in the graphical planning board?

In standard in the graphical planning board the setup, processing, teardown and waiting time can be visible for planned and production orders in the resource view. what about the other times, e.g. transportation time beetwen operations, etc.?

thank you for input!

best regards,

    Hi Pilvi,

    you can display the production flow in the in the DS planning board by

    Displaying Pegging Relationships
    Between Orders


    Displaying Relationships Between

    times other than the activity times setup, process, teardown and queue time cannot be displayed by bars in the the DS planning board.

    The interoperation times are displayed also by Displaying Relationships Between
    in the form of lines with arrows.

    You can learn more about APO with our

    SAP Advanced Production Scheduling rapid-deployment solution.

      Hi Pilvi,

      that is of course always possible. I was just looking for a way to solve the requirement without additional coding in the beginning.
