datasource enhancement or generic datasource in pp

Dear all,

I have a requirement in PP where I have to derive the Production and Consumption Values depending on Work Center, Order, Movement Type and Posting Date.

In Standard Datasources we have the following 2LIS_04_P_ARBPL and 2LIS_04_P_COMP.

But I have problem in using the above data sources:

a) (Production Values) 2LIS_04_P_ARBPL gives Workcenter , Order, Posting Date but does not have Movement Types . I have done some analysis and found out that this Datasource is pulling some fixed movement types by itself. But my requirement is I need to have the flexibility of using Movement Types.

b) (Consumption Values) 2LIS_04_P_COMP gives Order, Posting Date but does not have Movement Types and Workcenter . I have done some analysis and found out that this Datasource is pulling some fixed movement types by itself. But my requirement is I need to have the flexibility of using Movement Types and also I require Workcenter.

I think I cannot go for enhancement of Datasource because the movement types of standard ones are coded internally.

So as an alternative option I think I can go for Generic Data source.

In R/3 the above required values are derived from using tcode: COOIS and tcode: COOISPI.

The values which are derived from COOIS have the underlying tables CRHD, AFVC, AUFM. Build a view on these tables and then build a generic datasource

Now please suggest me what will be the performance issue if I go for Generic Datasource considering the amount of data the underlying tables might have.

Or is there any better way of achieving my requirement.

Suggest !!!!

    Hi,

    Always First prefer Business Content then Enhancement if these two options are not fitting for the requirement alternative is Generic.

    If the requirement is not satisfied with content r enhancement you can always go for generic but make sure generic delta created according to the requirement.( main concern about generic is delta issues).

    Regard,

    you can look at generic extractors but then make sure that your view is correctly defined and delta can be handled if you have a date field for the same.....
