    I think Sales Order should have the Customer Hierarchy information probably mapped into one of the Additional Data tabs under schedule line details of Sales Order. Since Customer Hierarchy is one of the characeristics in APO, it should be possible for sales order to sit in appropriate CVC for consuming allocation in GATP.

    • Not sure if I understood this correctly.

      Once you define your product allocation object and then group, you would need to assign Product Allocation Group to the right set of characteristics. Eg. EVENT or Cust Hierarchy in your case. Note that these are supposed to be defined as distinct planning characteristics in the GATP planning area. The association between the Product Allocation Group to the planning area is done through SPRO setting on maintaining connection.

      I would recommend you would need to explore user exits to pass on the information on EVENT or other kind of unique GATP relevant characteritiscs along with the sales order. The allocation setup should be able to dissect this information.
