Rescheduling of production orders in APO after (partial) confirmation in R3

Hi all,

I'm scheduling a production order in APO. Later I release it in R3 and (partially) confirm it. Now the production order is rescheduled based on the time and quantity of the confirmation.

I don't want to have the order rescheduled - and would like to see it after the confirmation on the same dates where the order was before the confirmation.

Any hints??

    Hi Michael,

    This is standard APO feature you are observing. The changes in the order (partial confirmation) in R/3 are sent to APO where it reschedules automatically subsequent activities in liveCache. The same changes are then sent to R/3 in a key completion queue.

    Using an user exit solution you can change the standard behavior. Please check Note 586685 which provide details of the user exit /SAPAPO/CL_EX_CIF_IP to be used. Also check notes 572644 and 579758.

    Hope this helps.

    Please read note 515913 for complete description of behaviour on various types of confirmations on manufacturing orders in R/3.

    If you are confirming only one operation, then only that particular partially confirmed operation would recieve the confirmation date. The rest of the operations should remain at their previous planned dates.

    If you are confirming the entire order itself, then it is treated as confirmation of each and every operation and the above behaviour repeats.

    Even if you try to override this behaviour in APO, it serves no purpose as further date changes to fully confirmed operations in APO will be ignored in R/3. But partially confirmed operations can be interrupted and rescheduled in APO and taken over by R/3.
