ATP Check(in SCM ) for a Configurable product during sales order creation.

HI Guru's,

our client is implementing GATP(SCM) and Variant Config(ECC 6.0)

when a Sales order is created for a Configurable Product of 20" width and 10" diameter, and with some other Characteristics, He wants the ATP check to be done for that particular product with specific width and diameter.

Is there any possible solution?

Plz let me know....

Thanks

jk

    I was working on a client a year ago that we were doing something very similar and remember it was quite difficult. I seem to remember that when we debugged the ATP check the characteristic values were not yet availblw in SCM therefore the PDS could not be interpretted properly.

    That said make sure that the PP Planning procedure is set to "3" on the product and that the ATP rules will trigger production. Give it a go. If you have set all up according to best practise then you should see a planned order being generated in the Porduct View before you confimr the ATP results in ECC that might help get an understanding of what is still going.

    My solution was a little different in that we had sales order BOM's that would drop out FERTs that we could ATP on.

    If you need a little more direction reply back and I will point out all the best practise doco I used to set it up. Hope this gives you ideas!!!

      Hi

      Assuming that you know how to configure Variant configuration in R/3, ATP check in R/3 I will list down the ATP set up and setup relevant to Variant Configuration in SCM.

      APO side.

      1.Check Definition of Characteristics and Class system:

      SAP APO - Implementation Guide -> SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer (SAP APO) -> Basis Settings -> Define Class System (CDP or Classical Characteristics)

      2. Check Mode ( use same requirements class used in R/3 mat master)

      SAP APO - Implementation Guide -> SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer (SAP APO) -> Global Available-to-Promise (Global ATP Check) -> General Settings -> Maintain Check Mode

      3. Create a check instruction with your check mode and AE(make to stock SD order) combination and set up the desired ATP check method in it.

      SAP APO - Implementation Guide -> SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer (SAP APO) -> Global Available-to-Promise (Global ATP Check) -> General Settings -> Maintain Check Instructions

      4. Check Control with your ATP group and AE business event.

      SAP APO - Implementation Guide -> SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer (SAP APO) -> Global Available-to-Promise (Global ATP Check) -> Product Availability Check -> Maintain Check Control

      5.Maintain suitable scheduling horizon in SAP APO - Implementation Guide -> SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer (SAP APO) -> Supply Chain Planning -> Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) -> Global Settings -> Maintain Global Parameters and Defaults -> Planning Tab

      5. Don't forget to CIF classes and charecteristics

      6. Maintain check mode, ATP group, PP/DS horizon, planning procedure 3 in product master.

      If you want to trigger production you have to maintain planning procedure 5 in product master and appropriate settings for MATP like configure check instructions, production type Mutli level ATP. you have to have valid BOM and Routings, CIF PDS for the material, maintain production version in material master, etc. That will be quite a complex scenario again.

      This should give you proper results. Hope this helps.
