PDS validity in SNP

Hello all,

we are implementing SNP for strategic planning at our customer using product data structure in SCM 5.0. We are facing the problem, that a validity of operations or whole PDS like in PP/DS is not transmitted to the APO system. ECM has obviously no effect on SNP.

So how to model a new product coming up in the mid of the year or an existing product can be produced on a second line from a certain point in time in the future.

Comments welcome

Regards Klaus

    Hi Klaus,

    If you are talking about a component being replaced by another in an assembly, you can use product interchangeability. You have to define interchangeability group specifying which product is outgoing one and which is incoming one, effective date etc.. When you take a heuristic run, system will automatically consider new product instead of old one for planning by transferring dependent demands from old product to new product.

    As far as validity of PPM is concerned, the validity of PV gets transferred automatically to PPDS PPM and from there to SNP PPM.

    Hope I am clear

      Hi Nitin,

      we already have production versions.

      If we try to transfer production version with valid operations in the future, no operation is transmitted to a SNP PDS.
