Wiki page for SCM-APO

Dear all,

Of late there have been a number of posts regarding new to APO, how to learn APO, questions around CIF along with regular functional and technical questions.

Hope this Wiki page (and more to come) will definitely help each of us. The number of posts on the Forum may come down since Wiki will be the first place for us to check before putting in a Forum Question. For easy access the Wiki FAQ link at the top of this forum links to the Wiki page directly.

If anyone has any suggestions or comments feel free to post. But there may not be any points since this is not marked as a question.

    I have a question... How do you get to the CIF page listed above?

    The link brings you to:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/wiki?path=/display/scm/cif&

    which you can get to by selecting Wiki from tab and then choosing:

    My Home > Supply Chain Management > Main > SCM Advanced Planner & Optimizer

    but how do you view/display the CIF data? I don't see a method besides hitting the link in this forum reply message.

    • Hi Ken,

      The CIF (along with DP, SNP, PPDS) pages are all child to the SCM Advanced Planner & Optimizer Page.

      Please check if you have Hide Children turned on.

      Kindly bear with me while direct navigation links are put in.

      Regards,

      Somnath

    All the links on this forum work fine...

    But if I try to find the page from the main menu by selecting Wiki, SCM, APO, I don't see any other links to get to CIF, DP, SNP, etc...

    Below is what I see (w/o any links to CIF, DP, SNP ,etc..)

    But I may have found the path: You click on Additional Features on top right.

    This displays the options...

    This was NOT obvious...

    I was expecting the links on the page itself...

    SCM Advanced Planner & Optimizer

    APO (Advanced Planning and Optimization) application is at the heart of SCM. It offers planning and optimization functionalities in different business processes of Demand Planning, Supply Planning, Supply and Demand Matching, Production Planning Detailed Scheduling, Global Available to Promise and Transportation Management.

    Collaboration with Suppliers and Customers is also possible through newer application Supply Network Collaboration (SNC) till recently known as Inventory Collation Hub (ICH)

    With SCM 5.0 a new set of functionalities under Services Parts Planning were added specifically catering to Spare Parts Management.

    APO as a application is tightly integrated to execution (OLTP) system like ERP using a standard interface called Core Interface Function (CIF). It also has full BI (erstwhile BW) component for Data Mart as well as Reporting functionalities.

    Dear Moderators,

    I have been looking for some answers, regarding to CIF & Planning Version at APO. along the Wiki but I didn't find anything useful. How can I post a thread exposing my issue?
