How to activate the ATP buckets in APO?

Hi,

We are in the process of changing the ATP buckets in our APO system.

I know the Path in the configuration:

Advanced Planning and Optimization -> Global Available-to-Promise (Global ATP) -> General Settings -> Maintain Global Settings for Availability Check

On the left side you will get three sections:

Global Settings

ATP Buckets (Active)

ATP Buckets (Planned)

I can change the values in (example field Shift Receipt Bucket) the ATP Buckets (Planned) section and save it with a transport. Now the question is how to activate the buckets. Is there another transaction for this? SAP Help doesn't specify how to activate.

Any ideas are highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mahesh

    Hi,

    To activate the buckets one need to check the box 'Current' in the options under ATP Buckets (Active). Also, as referred earlier by Dipthi do look up the documentation under:

    SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization (SAP APO) -> Global Available-to-Promise (Global ATP) -> Settings for Global ATP -> General Settings for Global ATP ->Definition of Buckets for ATP Time Series ->Activation of Bucket Parameters for ATP Time Series.

    The details are as beneath:

    Use

    If you change bucket parameters (see Definition of Buckets for ATP Time Series), these must be activated subsequently for the ATP time series.

    Features

    The system activates the bucket parameters in the following situations:

    Since activation in each of the situations described below leads to downtime, you should change bucket parameters less frequently than other Customizing settings.

    · Creating the active planning version for a client using transaction /SAPAPO/MVM

    If you set up a system again, you should process the bucket parameters before you create the active planning version. The bucket parameters are thus activated automatically.

    · Initializing SAP liveCache for all clients using transaction LC10

    In the case of an upgrade, you should process the bucket parameters before activating SAP liveCache. The bucket parameters are then activated automatically.

    · Executing the report /SAPAPO/OM_ATP_REBUILD_TS

    The system only rebuilds the ATP time series here.

    In this case, the SAP liveCache administrator must execute the following steps:

    a. Shut down SAP liveCache.

    b. Replace the com-file registration:

    i. At command line level, go to the SAP subdirectory of the SAP liveCache installation.

    ii. Under Microsoft Windows, save the original registration files SAPAPO.lst and SAPATP.lst (UNIX: libSAPAPO.lst and libSAPATP.lst), for example, by renaming or copying to another directory.

    iii. Under Microsoft Windows, rename the registration file SAPAPO_REBUILD.lst as SAPAPO.lst (UNIX: libSAPAPO_REBUILD.lstas libSAPAPO.lst) or copy it to another directory.

    iv. Under Microsoft Windows, rename the registration file SAPATP_REBUILD.lst as SAPATP.lst (UNIX: libSAPATP_REBUILD.lstas libSAPATP.lst) or copy it to another directory.

    c. Launch SAP liveCache.

    d. Execute the report /SAPAPO/OM_ATP_REBUILD_TS.

    e. Shut down SAP liveCache.

    f. Replace the com-file registration by replacing the registration files SAPAPO.lst and SAPATP.lst (UNIX: libSAPAPO.lst and libSAPATP.lst) with the original versions under Microsoft Windows.

    g. Launch SAP liveCache.
