Deployment Optimizer - Is Category EF recommended to be in ATR?

Hi All,

We are using deployment optimizer. Our ATR category group does not include the distribution receipts confirmed (Category EF).

The deployment receipts planned within the deployment optimization are not considered further for deployment.

I need your help in finding out if other companies configure ATR in the same way? or is it a mistake from our design team.

Regards,

Zeeshan.

    Hi Zeeshan,

    ATR is the sap standard category group which includes the categories

    AI, AJ, BF, CC, EE, EF and EI.

    Again including the category EF or not is purely a business requirement

    and customised and cannot be classified as design mistake.

    Drill down the basis for your configuration and arrive at the conclusion

    accordingly

    Regards

    Hi,

    Its depend on the business requirment. In your case I hope you are using TLB also. Actually you cant deploy products from one location to another location without any kind of stock, prod confirmed or TLB confirmed quantity. Now if you consider 'EF' as deployable quantity then you may face problem. Say you have a product of 100 quantity as 'EF' category at location 'B'. Now 'B' is supplied from Location 'A'. And another location 'C' receive goods from 'B'. Now can you supply all those 100 quantity from 'B' to 'C' ? You may not, because you may find that only 80 quantity was supplied from 'A' to location 'B' as TLB confirmed. So, actually you have 80 quantity at 'B' (received from 'A')

    So, I think ATR is well configured ...

    Thanks,

    Satyajit
