Online release to Order Series from DP

Hi Experts

1)Is there any program or BAPI or exits which updates DP forecast to SNP online.

If the user inputs the Demand in Planning book it should reflect in Product view sponteniously.

2) If we release the demand plan to the SNP in the business hours when users are accessing their planning books, will the release job fails ?

Your replies are highly appreciated.

Regards

    DP planning area hold on time series data so planning area should be locked for any update by business users while releasing the demand plan to SNP.

    SNP planning area holds order objects or forecast order,so planning area need not be locked.

    Therefore job will not fail if SNP planning area is accessed by business users but it will fail DP planning area is being accessed by the business users.

      Hi rave,

      This issue is not of system but user discipline. Data locking is an OS level characteristic and applies to any software. Release to SNP cannot work while a person is in the planning book in change mode, because the system cannot know whether the user is done with planning or is yet to enter data.

      Locking the planning area is not an option because you might be having a large number of users working at a single point of time. Please try to create disjoint set of selection profiles for data entry by the user and use the same selection profile for demand release to SNP.

    Dear Rave,

    Regarding your first question you can handle it via a macro.

    1. Create a exit macro. So this will be trigerred when you save the values in the planning book.

    2. Create a function module and import it in the macro.

    3. Inside this function module call the transacation /SAPAPO/MC90 or submit the report /SAPAPO/RTSOUTPUT_FCST for transferring the forecast values.

    Check the below thread for more information.

      Hi Siva

      Sorry for the delay.

      I checked it in the system as follows:

      1st Scenario:Selected Selection ID with MatA with Location Z input some values and released demand to snp simultaneously.

      2nd Scenario: Selected Selection ID with MatB with Location Z and released demand to snp simultaneously.

      3rd Scenario: Selected Selection ID with MatA with Location y and released demand to snp simultaneously.

      Planning book is kept in change mode and released dp to snp.

      Result: In all scenarios Demand is getting released to SNP without any issues.

      But i am worried in Production envirorent where Planning book is used by nearly 12 users.

      What is your advice in this regard?

      If i have two versions 001 and 000, if i the plan is ceated in 001 version then copied to 000 version using some macro.Then i think there would be no locking problem.

      Please comment on the above solution.Looking forward for your reply.

      Thanks
