Customizing Release Indicator - Difference between Changeability 5 and 6

Hello,

I am configuring Release Indicators for PO.

I have checked various threads on SCN but am unable to find a concrete answer.

I did some testing but was not able to find the difference between Changeability 5 and 6.

5 - Changeable, new release if new strategy/outputted

6 - Changeable, new rel. if new strat. or value change/outputted

Both are related to output types .But I wanted to know the exact difference and any impact .

Thanks in Advance!!

    isn't the difference already in the name itself?

    5 - Changeable, new release if new strategy/outputted

    6 - Changeable, new rel. if new strat. or value change/outputted

    5 takes care if a new strategy is determined

    6 in case of new strategy or even with the same strategy but when a value change happened.

    In general it is the same as indicator 3 and 4, the only difference to 3 and 4 is that 5 and 6 apply to document which were already outputted.

    Hello Jurgen ,

    Thanks a lot for your reply!!

    We have set the indicator like the following in my system:-

    Correct me If I am wrong in understanding the difference.I studied in my sandbox system with 5 and 6 changeability.

    5 - Release will not be reset unless a new release strategy is triggered i.e. the value is changed above my tolerance and we have a new release code.

    6 - Release will be reset even if we have a slight change in the value of the PO.

    If my understanding is correct then for my system Changeability "5" would be ideal .Am I on the right track here?
