    I did not find any standard way to update the CC indicator during slotting.But there is one enhancement available to update of tables when changing master record.

    here is the BAdi : /SCWM/EX_SLOT_SAV_UPD_TAB

    I would think that the F1 documentation behind the "fixed" field you refer to is wrong. Maybe it was once meant to set this during slotting (as EWM can read the demand data from APO during the slotting run, why not do this at the same time?).

    There is a transaction /SCWM/CCIND_MAINTAIN, which is to "Transfer Cycle Counting Indicator from APO". Although my ABAP is bad, I found the following comment line in the code of the report behind it "Fix indicator is set we do not overwrite". So I guess only this report used the information and only this report is able to set the CC indicator automatically.

      Theoretically during slotting system consider demand data and accordingly classification of material takes place but never came across a scenario to directly influence the control cycle indicator in system using slotting or never explore that area.

      As suggested by Juergen, Could you please share the book detail. interesting to know and explore
