APO alternative unit of measure conversion based on characteristic value

1207 Views

Hello community,

I am seeking feedback from fellow Mill product community on possible modeling options to address following scenario within an ECC 6.0 DIMP / SCM 7.0 environment

Within APO PPDS, how can we enable alternative unit of measure conversion based on characteristic values for Planned Orders for a single variant material.

We understand the options available for batch specific unit of measure in material master but are under the assumption that this is related to batch level conversion not planned order.

Let me explain further below

Background/Process Flow -

  • We have setup variant materials using Make to Stock planning segment
  • When variant material "A" is configured with characteristic "roll width" value = 100" inches the estimated lbs per roll should be 1000 lbs however when "roll width" = 50" inches the estimated lbs per roll should be 500 lbs.
  • Current state functionality is that it will only read the Unit of measure conversion for rolls defined in the product master which is defaulted based on 100" width value (ie 1 RL = 1000 lbs)

QUESTION

How can we achieve functionality that allows the user to change the unit of measure in product view from LB to RL so that Planned order #1 for 12,000 lbs (100" roll width) says 12 RL and Planned order #2 for 12,000 lbs (50" roll width) says 24 RL?
