SNP Planning for BOM components which has MRP type PD


Requirement is to run SNP heuristic for a material which has BOM.However, not all components have MRP type as X0.


Parent Material P1 has MRP Type X0

P1 has three components C1, C2, & C3 which has MRP Type X0, PD, X0 respectively.

CIF is configured to have materials with MRP Type X0. So only P1, C1, C3 materials will exist in APO product master.

now when SNP heuristic is run, it will generate dependent demand for components C1, C3. As component C2 will not be in APO product master, does dependent demand gets generated for this component C2 when SNP heuristic is run ?

Whatu2019s the standard approach ?

    My first impression is when you dont have the material (C2) in APO then there is no question of having a dependant demand for the non existing matreial in APO

      Despite being an old thread, it helped me to understand the intricacy of this particular transaction.

      However I got the following message when I CIF a material and Plant.

      "No location 2300 exists for mapping entry 2300 of cat. 1001 BSG BSG I"

      I tried to CIF just Plant 2300. Even then I get this error message.

      Deleted outbound Queue in ECC and tried CIF again, could not succeed .

      Verified the settings for BSG in APO for target system (ECC). Looks fine.

      Maintained distribution definition in ECC SPRO

      verified that both tables /SAPAPO/LOCMAP and /SAPAPO/LOC bear the same entries wrt plant 2300 with type 1001

      Removed inconsistencies by running program RAPOKZFX

      But still cd not get rid of the error (Message LOC077 if CIF with material and LOC007 when tried to CIF Plant alone).

      Any thoughts where should I verify or what more should I look for in queue?.

      Thanks in advance for help.
