    Hi everybody.

    We made an upgrade from SCM 2007 to SCM 7.0 in a Steel Industry. Now we are in test phase and the problems identified until now were:

    Product view: Product view does not open in the language portuguese (RAISE EXCEPTION: "OUTPUTFIELD_TOO_SHORT");

    CIF (Material): Error during the material integration (No supplying plant defined for product ...).

    These errors are open and SAP was involved.

    We had also a problem with the live cache but it was solved.

    In case we identify any other problems I put it here.

    Best Regards

    Thiago Cyrillo

    Hi All,

    WE had upgraded out SCM from 4.1 version to SCM 7.0 and had quite few issues and experiences.

    1. Authorizations issues for all users which a=had to be fixd bu our security taam.

    2. we use multiple Planning obect strucuture and planning areas, all our back up cube jobs failed initially, we had reactivale all infocubes by running RSDG_CUBE_ACTIVATE , similiarly transfer and upddate rules and also replicate data sources. Refer Note: 1152453 this will be useful

    3.WE had CIF issue for Master data, our R/3 system is still at 4.5B hence SAP willl not support this. MAterial which are flagged for deletion for some plants are not holding the queues, SAP had suggested some coding change note and our ABAP team are working this out.

    4. We had to run all consistency checks before openning of our planning books.

    Pretymuch most of the issues are from BI area as upgrade from BI 3.5 to Bi 7.0 is a major change. Most issues we have are from BI area. I would advice if all consistency checks are run and in Bi if you can reactivate you r cubes, trnasfer and update rules and replicate data sources , you can avoid many issues.

    Regards

    Siva

      Thanks Siva for updating us.

      BI 3.5 to Bi 7.0 upgrade. If you do not want to upgrade BI 3.5 to BI 7.0 along with the SCM 7.0 then you can use the transaction RSA1_OLD and continue working as it it.

      Once you used the RSA1 transaction and did some changes in the BI objects you get lots of issue which have to resolve first.

      is any one done Gap Analysis of SCM 7.0 and earlier APO/SCM versions?

      Hello,

      we are currently upgrading from 5.0 to 7.0.

      The following errors we have found so far:

      >> Program LCM_REORG_SNP_ALL (suggested by upgrade guide) for consistency checks runs erroneos. SAP has provided an OSS for correction (1558593)

      >> Issues processing PROACT idocs (also corrected by note (1531073)

      >> errors using TLB ( also corrected by note 1559884).

      >> We also did have some issues using BDLS (system copy was part of our upgrade strategy). In particular with DTPs that were not taken into account when changing the source system. We have found some notes for correction:

      0001135964

      0001142908

      0001148403

      0001242928

      Other than that, our experience is quite positive and without too many hickups. However we are still testing in Sandbox & Development environment.

    • Hello Experts,

      I need to work on upgrade project . Upgrade of APO 5.1 to 7.0 (SAP enhancement package 2 for SAP SCM 7.0). Modules in the scope are DP, SNP, CIF and GATP. I have no past experience on the APO upgrade project.

      First stage of the project is Upgrade Assessment Study. I seek your urgent help for the same.

      1. I would like to know about different methodologies and approaches used in doing the Upgrade Assessment for APO.

      2. Typically how the upgrade assessment roadmap looks like or if you have any recommendations for such upgrade assessment?

      3. Are there any tools or templates (freely) available which can be used for doing the Upgrade Assessment. If you have one, Request you to share.

      4. How APO upgrade is different than ECC upgrade?

      Appreciate if you share any inputs/comments and your past experiences.

      Thank you
      Satish Waghmare

    What are the technical requirements for upgrading APO 3.1 to SCM 7.0? Will it be able to run on the same hardware, or it will need to be upgraded? What are the new LiveCache requirements? Is PI required?

    Hello experts,

    we are planning to upgrade from SCM5.0 to SCM7.0. Our current SCM has BI/BW) 7.0 SP22 (SAPKW70022). Will the BW part change once we upgrade to SCM7.0 or is it still a BW7.0 inside ?

    Regards

    Thomas

    HI,

    Following an upgrade from SCM 5.0 to SCM 7.0, in SAPAPO/SDP94 we see that the settings for the graphics have changed.

    The new ones aren't much self explanatory . Is it still possible to change the scale of your graphic for example ? Where can I find more info on this change ?

    Thanks for your help !

    Hi

    We are in process of doing a technical upgrade from SCM 4.0 to 7.0. The client decided to proceed with the upgrades of SCM without LiveCache. The intention was that LiveCache data would be rebuilt from data in ABAP and then pushed back out to LiveCache after the SCM 7.0 upgrade completed. Now the upgrade is complete, I tried to export the data in to liveCache using report /SAPAPO/OM_LC_UPGRADE_70, it failed saying there was a run time error in application program.

    Please share thoughts on what can be done.

    Thanks in advance!

    Venkat
