Need clarification on some MDT attributes used in Supply Planning


In SourceProduction MDT, there are two attributes: LocID and SourceID. Its often confusing to understand the fundamentals of these two attributes.

Question 1: Does SourceID represent the source of a product and LocID the destination to which the Product will be  moved?

Question 2: If we have a scenario with:

One Plant (PL01), one DC (DC01) where PL01 produces a Product PRD01 and stocks it at DC01,

what will be the SourceID and LocID in this case?

    Hi Saabitri,

    Source ID is rather a unique ID used in Production Source master data to define unique production sources. I have seen this ID generated as a concatenation between the product id and location.

    The sourcing rule indicates that you define the product at the given location.

    In your example I see a transportation rule needed.

    Location Source MD:

    Ship-From ID: PL01

    Loc ID: DC01

    Prd ID: PRD01

    Production Source MD:

    Loc ID: PL01

    Product ID: PRD01

    Source ID: PRD01_PL01
