Impact of work center name change in APO system

Hi experts, We have a requirement in project where in business has requested to change work center name in ECC system from abc to xyz. We understand that new work center name will not be automatically reflected in SAP APO system through CIF. Hence I would like to know what all steps to be performed in APO system such as closing of production order, Pl orders, PPM etc before we change work center name in ECC system.

Thank You,

    Instate of changing the workcenter name why don't you create new work center and replace it in routing. Which will CIF to APO system and new order will be planned with this new work center.

    If you rename workcenter, you can CIF it to APO, make sure old production orders are closed.

    And planned will be replaced by new work center if you reexplode it with heurestic.

    Best Regards,
