Stopping the unwanted STRs flowings to ECC

Hi,

We use SNP CTM and Heuristic for master scheduling and long term planning respectively. When the item is created in ECC, at this time it is decided weather it will be planned in APO or ECC. And accordingly MRP type is updated. But the material will not be ready for shipping as it is just created or yet to be costed (Plant specific material status is 01-Under dev/ready for planning or 02-Ready to cost). Based on MRP type we bring this material to APO for future planning. When APO creates a stock transfer request it will flow back to ECC but the STR will not get created in ECC because its plant specific material status is 01 or 02. These errors gets logged in at CIF Post Processing area and keeps piling up. But we need these planning results for analysis and planners will use these results only in APO. So is there any way we can stop these STRs of material with plant specific material status 01 and 02 transfer to ECC?

Thanks & Regards

Yogeesha

    Hi Yogeesha,

    MRP Results are not coming back to ECC via CIF as material status in ECC won't be allowing to create purchasing documents in ECC.

    Please check the SPRO Settings in ECC for this plant specific material status under "Define Material Status" - Currently it will be setup as B(error). You can change that to A (warning) and then test it out. Planning results will be able to come back to ECC from APO  - only warning messages will be there in CIF logs.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

      Hi Yogeesha,

      By Default, all planning results in APO gets transferred to ECC when it is created in APO.

      You can change the seetings under /SAPAPO/C4 to change the Recording Type - this way planning results will not be pushed to ECC and remain in APO only.

    Hi,

    One option would be to Define Transfer of SNP Orders to OLTP System in APO SPRO and check "No SNP Stock Transfers" under SNP. You can then use /SAPAPO/C5 to publish the stock transfers by selection criteria of the materials that you need Stock Transfers for in ECC. You can probably use different SNP Planner codes to differentiate new materials from others.

      Hi Abhishek,

      C5 we are already using with different filter criteria. Planner codes are already being used for some different filter criteria. So both the options are ruled out

      Thanks and Regards
