Copying Planning Books, Macros, Background jobs etc

Dear Friends,

When we have to perform a major change in the Production system like addition of a new characteristic in APO-DP, can we create a new Planning Area and copy the Key figures, Planning Books/data views, Macros, all Planning jobs etc from the existing Planning area for Testing and POC purpose instead of creating the same things again?

Your ideas and suggestions will be of great help. Thanks in advance.

Regards

Bala

    Your change in characterisitics will affect the MPOS

    You will have to create a new MPOS with the new characterisitics and activate it and Generate the New CVCs

    You can then copy the existing Planning area and initialize it. Make sure you change the MPOS that it refers to before initializing

    You can also copy the Planning book/Data views and the macros from the existing ones

    Same goes with the Jobs. You can copy and change the planning area it refers to

    alternately you can create the MPOS and generate CVC

    after that deactivate the current planning area (after backing up the data )

    change the MPOS it is attached to

    reactivate the planning area
