Stock Transport Orders consuming forecast in APO - SNP

Hi

I have a problem where the Stock Tansport Orders (STO's) in R/3 are consuming the forecast, therefore when I go into SNP, I dont see the correct forecasts quantities from DP reflecting in SNP.

When I go into Product View (/SAPAPO/RRP3 - Product View) I see the STO's quantities reflecting in the "Allocated Qty" field.

It seems the Allocated Qty is consuming the forecast and I dont know where this qty comes from as I have looked at the STO's in R/3 and the qtys ordered do not match up with the APO Product View "Allocated Qty".

Where does the "Allocated Qty" come from and how do I delete it other than deleting the material of the ordered material list in the STO?

Thanx

Keegan

    This is strange...here you need to check two things:

    1. Check the category group assigned to your requirement strategy

    Path: SPRO >APO >Master data >Product >Specify Requirement Strategy

    2. Check the Categories assigned to that Category Grp

    Path: SPRO >APO >Supply Chain Planning >SNP >Basic Settings-->Maintain Category groups

    here select your category grp and click on categories..it will display all the categories that are assigned to that category group. Check if category BF (Purchase order) is included there. If yes, then that is the reason it is consuming the forecast. Take necessary action as per your business scenario

    Hi Keegan,

    The "Allocated Qty" will be viewed in Product view(RRP3) in Forecast Tab. The allocated qty is the quantity that is confirmed and delivered to the customer ie under PGI done stage. ie quantities for which PGI is carried out. This quantity has got direct implication with the forecast qty in terms of consumption. This qty will get reduced with the total forecast qty and the balance remaining quantity will get supplied to the customer.

    So, as a best practice, to startwith fresh planning run in the start of a bucket, it is always recommended to clean off the allocated qty so that consumption will start from the beginning against the forecast and fresh supplies will be planned. If we delete allocated qty, the PGI will not get deleted.

    For deleting allocated qty, there is no SAP standard reports available and hence you need to write a customised report for deletion. This deletion report is very simple to write using an abapper.

    Regards

    Let me explain you the Allocated Qty Concept:

    In Product View under Forecast Tab you see different columns like

    1. Quantity Planned: This is the Qty which is released from DP to SNP

    2. Allocated Qty: This is the Qty consumes the forecast by usually Sales orders, dependent demand etc

    3. Withdrawal Qty: This is the Qty for which PGI has been done.

    When I go into Product View (/SAPAPO/RRP3 - Product View) I see the STO's quantities reflecting in the "Allocated Qty" field

    It seems the Allocated Qty is consuming the forecast and I dont know where this qty comes from as I have looked at the STO's in R/3 and the qtys ordered do not match up with the APO Product View "Allocated Qty".

    The above two statements look contrasting

    Please let me know how you able to say that STOs are consuming the forecast. Whats your Requirement Strategy maintained in the product master
