SAPMEINT Parallel Processing


we have implemented the following note to have multiple queues for our messages.

Currently we had queues for the orders and the material.

As we see performance problems and the possibility due to the fact that we split orders (into main and sub-orders) I defined the split process to dynamically name the new message type with a random value at the end.

E.g. LOIPRO03_1, LOIPRO03_2, LOIPRO03_3

For each of the types I created a workflow with a seperate PROC_TYPE to allow parallization.

Unfortunately now we receive problems with the default creation mechanism, because some objects in ME are interfering each other:

Record updated by another user (Message 10006) at at at at at at sun.reflect.GeneratedMethodAccessor13511.invoke(Unknown Source

Do you have an idea how we can have parallel processing for the same objects in ME? Like orders?

    Hi Kai,

    I guess (and your observations seem to confirm my opinion) it is a bad idea to split processing of the same IDoc into a parallel processing. It looks as if your parallel queues are processing the same object (operation/BOM/routing) which is referenced by different IDocs from different queues.

    Originally, parallel processing was meant for splitting out a specific IDoc so the it is not sitting in the general queue among a lot of other IDoc types.

    So, I really doubt your requirement is covered by the original design of the parallel processing.

    • Kai,

      There is no plan of further development on this topic. The Note was meant to provide some possible approach to parallel processing in SAPMEINT rather than out-of-the-box solution. So, for now, each implementation of parallel processing is considered as a customer-specific project, usually carried out by customer's team, like a sort of customization.

    Hello Kai,

    Is it a sporadic error that happens rarely or something that can be reproduced on demand once you define that split logic?

    In case it can be reproduced on demand, I would suggest that you open a support incident to replicate the same on SAP side and investigate it deeper.

    In case it is a sporadic error, a possible scenario can be:

    1. Order is retrieved in SAP ME (i.e. in Shop Order Maintenance or maybe by some activity like Release) by MEuser.

    2. Order is updated via MEINT by MESYS.

    3. MEuser tries to save the Order.

    In this case, please, make sure the Order is not processed nor updated in SAP ME in the meantime. Perhaps, setting on Hold in advance can help.

    Adding additional Tracing in MII transactions can help to catch more details against what particular Orders were affected.

    Br, Alex.

      Hi Alex,

      it can be reproduced.

      The scenario is the followin. We receive one IDOC from ERP with the information from one order. Based on its information we create one main and multiple sub-orders (with their own shop order number in ME) with the split logic. Thats not the problem yet.

      With the split logic we create the new message types with a random value at the end E.g. LOIPRO03_1, LOIPRO03_2, LOIPRO03_3

      These are now processed in parallel. The problem now occurs not on the order because each item has a different order number. The problem occurs on the operation. Because they can all use the operation coming from the base routing in ME. Therfore the operations object throws the DB Update error.
