Distr. Key GLEI in Prod. order not getting reflected in SCM product view


We have the CIF integration model active to transfer production orders from R/3 to SCM-APO.

When we create a production order in R/3 it is getting transferred over to SCM and can be seen in Product view for the material-plant combination.

If we have the distribution key as GLEI on the production order in R/3, and we looked at stock requirements list-MD04 the receipts were split across evenly from the start date to the end date of the production order.

However, in the product view of SCM, the material was shown as available only at the end date of the production order with the full quantity.

Please provide any pointers as to something we might have missed out that made the CIF'ing not work properly...

Thanks & Regards,

Renjith John Andrews

    You need to check your PPM for the material-plant you have.

    It needs to have the value 'C' for continuous consumption in the Consumption type for your finished material (Field MATCO).

    By default it will set the finished material to 'E' for available at the end rather than continuous. You can set this to change based on the value in GLEI in the CIF enhancement for the PPM's.

      Hi Renjith

      Yes I do mean the Production Process Model. To check setting you need to do the following:

      Transaction /sapapo/scc03

      Click on choose plan via PPM and enter your material and location and press change.

      Double click your operation

      Double-click your activity

      On the components tab you should see your "Output" material (Type O in I/O Indicator field), next to this should be the consumption indicator field. This is the one that has to be set to 'C'.

      Hope this helps.
