Multiple Backend for APO system

hi Experts,

I have a scenario to connect multiple backend (ERP system Ehp4) to the APO system (7.0 SP 03). The ERP development system & ERP support system will be connected to one APO system which will be used for development.

the query is,

1. will there be any problem in this kind of landscape (for txn data, master data & transports)

2. does SAP give any standard feature to connect this way

3. how can the data from one APO identified uniquely to be sent to different ERP systems.

4. generally what are the difficulties in this scenario?

Thanking you in anticipation.

    Hi Vasu,

    Multiple backend ystem is a common practice in SAP APO.

    This is the standard feature of SAP standard practice.

    You have to define the logical system in respective R/3 systems and then CIF customization process you have to follw.

    based on your naming conversion (logical system) the data is going to be communicated.

    There are no such difficulties but problem is there in APO to understand the same product data from different systems.

    Some times it creates confusion if your planning book and maxcro design is not well configured.

    Hi Guys,

    I have a quick question on the use of multiple R/3 systems. The situation we have is an ECC and 4.0B system coupled with APO. Are there any specific issues that we need to look for while implementing BSG in a scenario like this?

    Kind regards,
