CTM Safety Stock Planning

Hi SAP Experts,

Asking for your help on the set up of safety stonk planning in CTM

We would like to use safety stock and below are the parameters maintained.

1. Take Safety Stock into Account (3) is selected in the planning version

2. Safety Stock Method SZ and Safetiy Day's supply is maintained in Product Master

3. CTM:

Supplies -> Build Up safety stock (Consider supply shortage, stock is available) -> Consider Safety Days' Supply (always consider) is selected, but the safety days supply is still not respected.

Thanks! Sincerely, Ria

    Hi Ria,

    It seems the first setting itself is not correct that is in planning version as 3. If you check F1 help of this field it clearly states CTM ignores the "Build up safety stock indicator" in CTM profile for 3. The below is an extract from "performance assistant (F1)" for this field:

    Consider Safety Stock Requirements in SAP liveCache

    • Usage in CTM
      • You can only use this option in the standard system for make-to-stock production and static safety stock methods (SB and SM). Using a heuristic, you create safety stock requirements in SAP liveCache, based on the algorithm /SAPAPO/HEU_PLAN_SAFETY_STOCK. The safety stock of a location product is represented in SAP liveCache by an order of the type GC_OM_SAFETY_STOCK, which consists of a requirements element with the category SR in the standard system. Dynamic pegging takes this kind of safety stock requirement into consideration. CTM planning handles safety stock requirements like any other requirements in requirement prioritization.
      • If you choose this option, CTM ignores the Build up safety stock indicator in the CTM profile.

    I would suggest you to cross-check this setting once again and switch to "2 - Consider Virtual Safety Stock Elements". Thereafter check the results and let us know if you still face an issue.

      Hi Rahul,

      Apologies for the confusion. I thought it is working but it is not as am not getting the correct day's supply. It just so happened that the number of days is lower now than before. Safety Stock method is SZ, so the day's supply should be the same as the product master. anyway. will just close this and will raise a new one.

      Sincerely, Ria
