PP-PI confirmation of phase


I am working PP-PI scenario, my client want to add one more activity in 'Work center' so total activities will be 7. In SAP as we cant assign 7 activities to work center, I have defined 'Secondary Resource' for the phase of first operation, this 'Secondary Resource' have on one activity assigned.

I am facing problem when I am confirming phase of first operation with COR6N, it confirms 6 assigned activities but it didn't show 'Secondary resource' for confirmation. In F4 help of operation it shows the 'Phase' of next operation but not the 'secondary resource' of first phase. Also not finding way to confirm this secondary resource.

I tried to checked it on SCN but didn't reach answer, Please suggest.

    Hi Abhay

    The process what you are doing is correct.

    Please check the below settings.

    Did you assign Secondary Resource in Master Recipe?

    Did you activate phase for Secondary Resource in Master Recipe?

    • Hi Suresh,

      Thank you for your reply.

      Yes, the secondary resource is assigned to 'Master Recipe' and 'Phase is active.

      Operation Phase indicator sub operation resource

      1000 AAA

      1010 Active 1000 AAA

      2000 BBB

      2010 Active 2000 BBB

      In this scenario, I have assigned 'Secondary resource' to 1010 as 'CCC' with 'Resource item' as 1015 but in transaction COR6N in system confirms 1010 and 2010 but not confirm also in F4 help of operation didn't show 1015.

      Please suggest.

    As per the standard SAP you can have maximum 6 activity per center.

    I would suggest in this case you need have have another phase and operation with single activity.

    For secondary resource confirmation in OPK1 for your confirmation profile header area use screen 5115 Confirmation/order/Phase/Secondary resource.

    Best Regards,
