Product Allocation in GATP

Hi All:

I am trying to build folowing scenrio in Product allocation for GATP.

First allocation will be done on the basis of monthly alocated qty and then allocation will be done on daily basis where summation of daily allocated qty is not same as monthly alocated qty.

Lets discuss it with a example.

Suppose for a Customer A allocation has been set as 270 for product P in month January.

And per day allocation has been set as 10 qty.

Now scenario is that if any sales order comes so first alocation will be checked against monthly assigne qty if sales order value is less that that then only maximum 10 qty can be alocated to the same cusomrer product combination.

Please let me know what is the possible way to do it.

Please also provide me some link to know more about product alocation in GATP.

With regards

Ashish Gupta

    Ashish,

    Technically you can achieve this. You will have to maintain 2 planning areas for managing the allocations, one with month periodicity and the other with daily periodicity. You then need to define 2 different Product Allocation group which are assigned to the respective planning areas. Both Product Allocation groups can be maintained in a Allocation Procedure in the sequence you want.

    The user can control the monthly and daily allocations in the respective planning books. When the sales order is created allocations in both planning areas will be checked and your requirement should be satisfied. This should work. Try it out & let me know. The following link gives the SAP help for Product Allocation functionality.

      You will have different POS for the different planning areas and you will need to maintain different sets of CVC for the 2 different planning areas.

      Let the first planning area be at daily level where you have the allocations for Product. This POS should contain atleast the Product characteristic. The first check is executed at this product level against the daily allocations. If it passes, then it will check the next level which will be the Product/Customer monthly allocation in the other planning area.

      The second planning area will be at monthly level where you maintain allocations for Customer/Product combinations. This POS must contain atleast the Product and Customer (sold-to or ship-to) characteristics. Only if the first check in the allocation procedure for daily allocation is passed, then the second check will execute to ensure that the customer/product combination does not execeed the monthly budget.

      Pls remember the planning areas are assigned to Product Allocation groups and it is the sequence of Product Allocation groups in the procedure which control which check will be executed first.
