Lowest Level in APO DP Heirarchy

In APO DP, how would a charecteristic is identified or noted as the lowest level in a heirarchy. I mean, if i have a product heirarchy as Main Grp -> Sub Grp -> SKU and SKU is my lowest level, how do i inform APO about the same. While creating POS there is no option of specifying the lowest level.

Thanks & Regards,

Ganesh

    Hi Ganesh,

    When you define hierarchy using transaction, /SAPAPO/RELHSHOW, you could see the various hierarchies for your particular selection criteria, at the bottom of the maintenence table.

    This is the area where you define how your hierarchies needs to be like. You could also see the Main group hierarchy and subgroup hierarchy as separate nodes in this maintenance screen.

    There is no way to specify a characteristic to be lowest level. Unline R/3 Product Hierarchy, APO CVCs are flat.

    Notionally SKU is lowest level because the CVCs will be something like the exmaple below where you can see SKU Chacateristic is having unique value not the other characateristics.

    CVC : Product Family - Product Sub Family - SKU

    CVC1 Home Entertainment - DVD Player - Model A

    CVC2 Home Entertainment - DVD Player - Model B

    CVC3 Home Entertainment - DVD Player - Model C

    CVC4 Home Entertainment - Blu Ray Player - Model D

    CVC5 Home Entertainment - Blu Ray Player - Model E

    and like wise for other product family

    CVC6 Personal Entertainment - MP3 Player - Model XX

    CVC7 Personal Entertainment - MP3 Player - Model XY

    The same SKU cannot belong to different Product Family / Sub Family. This is the Product Dimension.

    You should have Location Dimension where you define similar notional Hierarchy for Location where the lowest level would be SoldTo or ShipTo which can be part of a Sales Office, Region etc. characteristics.

    Hope this helps.
