Filling the Inventory Setup Tables

We are carrying out a dry run to fill up the inventory setup tables.

Filling MC03BF0SETUP takes more than 3 days. When we move to production and carry out the actual fill we will not have this amount of time to have the R3 production system offline. What is the best approach to handle such a scenario. For example can we break the fill over two weekends and if not why not and if so what are the potential areas of concern if any? Thanks

    This is an idea. You can divide initialization in several pieces, first you can initialize last periods with productive off-line (less time to initialize a couple of periods) after that initialize closed past periods in which no posting can be done with system online.

    Hi,

    You can absolutely break up the initializations over a period of time using selective initializations. Also, if possible, you don't need to wait for the weekends, if you can break them up into even smaller chunks, you can also do that during off hours, or during windows when there is no to minimal user activity.

    Cheers,

    Try running several setup jobs in parallel for non-overlapping selections. It should reduce your setup window significantly.

    I recently completed a setup using 5 parallel jobs for 5 consecutive years. Running one job for the 5 years takes quite a while longer.

    Niten,

    You can run parallel setup jobs to break it down into smaller chunks. But talk to your functional and make sure that there can be no retro-active postings to earlier periods either online or thru batch utilities. Otherwise, you will miss some data. Also, run the setup in the batch mode for better utilization of the resources.
