Realignment of CVCs

Dear Friends,

Is it possible to perform partial Re-alignment of the CVCs. There is already a CVC generated for products, locations, regions. Am introducing new products and want to realign those few products only using the same other value combinations from other similar products.

If you have an answer for this as "yes", pls let me know a broad outline of how this can be done?.

If your answer is "no", can re-alignment be done for the entire CVC. If so this will create a problem for me as the system is already in Production.

    Hi Bala,

    Re-alignment is needed whenever there is a change in the attributes of the products that you are planning. For example, if material 1111 previously has color = red and suddenly the color changed to blue. In this case, you will need to copy the data from the charactertic combinations representing the old product attributes (i.e. mat = 1111 color = red) to the new product attributes (i.e. mat = 1111 color = blue). During re-alingment KF values are copied from the old characteristic combinations to the other. Promotions can also be copied, but i believe this only possible if you choose to delete the old characteristic combinations during re-alignment.

    In the realignment transaction, you have the capability to specify the changes in the product attributes. You specify both a selection of the products that have been "hit" by realignment and also the changes in their attributes. You have two tables to do that (the left one is for the attributes of the old product, the right one is for the attributes of the new product). The SAP program will read data for all characteristic combinations satisfying the codition of the left table. It will then create characterstic combinations with similar attributes as the source but now reflecting the changes you outlined in the right table. For example, for the realignment i have mentioned above the table should be as follows:

    LEFT TABLE: mat1 = 1111, color = red, other attributes are blank.

    RIGHT TABLE mat1 = 2222, color = blue, other attributes are blank.

    The SAP program will extract all characteristic combinations with mat=1111 and color=red and then create new char combos with mat=111,color=blue (other attributes remain the same). The old char combinations will remain unless you chose to "delete source combinations". You can check for the existence of both the old and new char combinations in transaction /SAPAPO/MC62.

    I will post again to give an example and answer your 2nd question.

    Hope this helps you.

      Hi Emmanuel,

      Thanks for your reply. But as posted by Alper when the new product already exists and when I perform the re-alignment for the same new product, the old CVCs are only overwritten and it doesn't seem to double it up.
