    This long term planning is used for the planning of the materials more than 6 months.

    This is simulative planning which used by creating the scenarios.

    Whenever you feel the perticular scenario will be mostly matched with requirements of the client, you will transfer that planning to Active planning(mrp).

    IMP Tcodes for LTP:

    Create planning scenario MS31

    Planning Run MS02

    MRP list MS05

    In LTP a planning scenario is created to enable simulation of material requirements which can be based on the production plan. Planned requirements can be reviewed and adjusted as needed. Once the simulated requirements are accepted, the demand (independent requirements) is then transferred to active demand management.

    A detailed Capacity situation can be seen for any scenario which is used to evaluate LTP scenario as well as production plan.


    Create Inactive Demand in Demand Management MD61

    LTP Planning Scenario MS31

    LTP MRP MS01

    Capacity Planning CM38

    Copy to Active Demand Management MS64

    To analyze long term planning use,

    item : MS05 - MS06 - MS44 - MS47

    purchasing : MCEC - MCEA - MCEB

    stock - MCB)

    Hope clear to you.

    Dear sapguru,

    Generally LTP is carried for selected Finished products,that too in the Financial year begining,for budgeting

    purpose.There are companies who use this LTP as pre planning tool for production.

    Say they check the capacity availability for next 3 months,materials requirements etc.

    Per hour activity rate can also be derived using this LTP.

    After carrying out LTP run,we will get simluate planned orders,which cannot be processed for further

    actions like converting into production.Purchase order.

    Important settings are in T code - OPU5 - Scheduling Planned orders for LTP,Here itself you maintain the

    planning scernario for individual plant.

    1.Demand will be given in MD61 for the products for which you are planning to carryout LTP in non active

    version,that's other than 00 and also remove tick mark against the check box for active in MD61 screen.

    2.Mention the planning scenario which's been configured in MS31.

    3.Assign the plant and Planned independent Requirements in MS32.

    4.Planning file entries in MS20 and display it in MS21.

    5.Carryout LTP run in MS02 and the simulated planned orders can be checked in MS04.

    6.capacity requirements for LTP can be viewed in CM38.

    7.Transfer of planned activities to production can be done in KSPP.

    I hope to some extent this will help you.

    Please check this link for further understanding.
