Hello Gurus,

I am new to PPDS, can you please provide some insight about the features/ability of PPDS. Like SNP does DRP and Master scheduling. Can you please list the different scenarios SAP APO PPDS supports like Campaign planning, block planning etc and if there is any documentation or building blocks for PPDS i would really appreciate it.

    Hi Nick,

    PPDS helps in carrying out

    • Detailed planning typically at plant level

    • Scheduling of resources, orders to the most detailed level (such that they can be taken up and followed for execution)

    • Capacity Planning, Other priorities and sequences of operations and resources

    • Assisting the execution system with the detail-most planning and near-execution data

    For more information and scenarios, please refer below SCN Wiki Link -

    Hope it helps you.
