APO report showing validity Start or PDS explosion date for planned orders

Using SCM PP/DS, I am looking for a way to verify all planned orders for a product have had PDS re-explosion run successfully after a PDS change has been integrated to SCM. There is a "validity start" on the RRP3 order dates/times that will show the latest valid from date for the components, which seems to be a good indicator, but I can only view that by clicking into each planned order. Is there a report that will display the last PDS explosion date or the "validity start" date for all planned orders for a product in SCM? If there is nothing standard, then which report could most easily be modified to accommodate this need? Thanks for any advice.

    Valid start date in planned order in RRP3 is nothing but the validity from date of PDS or PPM.

    It does not mean explosion date for order.

    If you have some changes in PDS (PV) and recif it it will not overwrite valid from date so this logic will not work.

    If production version validate from date changed or create new PV then this should be fine. However it is not the case always like only component changed.

    When you execute SAP_PP_021 in a Planning Run (/SAPAPO/CDPSB0) you will have Explosion Date. So check if any error message in the Planning and Scheduling Logs of planning run to ensure that all orders are exploded as per new PDS.

    For more details please refer SAP consulting note - 385602 - Validity in APO (Documentation)
