    Hi Jay,

    Yes one order type may have multiple categories. 1F will have categories other than planned orders like Stocks & Distribution orders etc, Each categories may grouped to form a category group. Categories are every single KF you're going to plan in APO

    Order Type is how you're to perform the planning (Replenishment/Requirement Planning)

    1F - In House Production - where the the replenishment is done by producing the requirement (materials) in the Plant owned by company as per your demand. Thus Planned Orders are created --> Converted to Production Orders --> Production execution --> Stocked-->Fulfilling the demands.

    External Procurement - where the the replenishment is done by procuring (Purchasing) the requirement (materials) from external suppliers. Thus Purchase Reqs are created --> Converted to Purchase Orders/SA --> Received from Supplier --> Stocked-->Fulfilling the demands.

    Explore the Planning type and categories associated with it you'll get fair knowledge.

    Go through SAP Help/Library and SCN you''ll find interesting and informative info.

    Good Luck n Great Weekend to all

    Regards

    Hello Jay,

    The category - describe the different stock, receipt, requirement, and forecast

    types in the SAP APO system. The system comes with one set of categories that

    represent the SAP R/3 MRP elements.

    Order type - represent the type of the order in APO Live Cache!


    Thanks,

    Regards, Marius

    Hi Jay,

    In simple words order type consists of order category, example 1F can have planned orders and production orders (depending upon customizing).

    Where as order category is the MRP element itself which is part of order type, example CC - Stock, EE - SNP planned order, etc.

    Regards
