SHELF LIFE PLANNING IN SAP IBP

Hi Team,

We are trying to use shelf life in SAP IBP using Supply.

Just wanted to check if this functionality is supported in 1802 version.

As per SAP note "2465513" there is a Separate Solution for shelf life which is built by SAP and we need to buy it.

Could you please guide on this?

Thanks,

Krishna

    Hello Naveen,

    SAP IBP 1802 release provides you the visibility into batch expiry date based on L code logic. You do not need to buy it and predefined in SAPIBP1 delivered sample planning area.

    You can gain visibility into expiring batches for products with a shelf life by taking into account the remaining shelf life of the batch and the minimum shelf life required by customers.

    This gives you a clear view of the remaining batch quantity, unfulfilled demand, and expiring inventory that needs to be replanned at customer-facing distribution centers.

    The calculation of the output data is done by L-code calculations with shelf-life visibility logic and batch determination logic. The calculation is only at the level of customer-facing distribution centers; there is no propagation throughout the supply plan.

    The master data types, attributes, and key figures for shelf-life visibility are delivered in the SAPIBP1 sample planning area.

    Please refer to the below link for more information.

    Hi Lingaiah,

    Thanks for sharing the link . Actually I have already gone through this and uploaded all the required data(Master and key figures) and ran heuristic but whenever I try to load the output key figure in Excel it throws error as below.

    Any guess what could be missing here.

    Hi Lingaiah,

    Master data:

    1) I have two customers. where I have updated the Minimum Required Shelf life. These 2 customers are connected with one DC

    2) Two Batches with intial Remaining Shelf Life for same product.Product exist at both customer and DC.

    Key figure Data:

    1) Loaded the intial batch qty.

    2) Remaining shelf life

    3) Consensus Demand Plan Qty

    Initially i don't see values in Demand qty L input and Min Req Shelf Life -L input .
    Only after creating "New planning object"(highlighed in yellow) , i see these values

    Hi Krishna,

    if you have values for all reuired data as Help Portal guide, but you get error in MS Excel, as your attached screenshot shows, it may be a known issue. There was some L-Code problem, which was fixed in IBP 1802. It is depend on your IBP version too.

    Best regards,
    Melinda
