PDS (Phantom Assemblies)

Hello Friends,

In R/3, the routing structure is built off of a multilevel BOM structure with phantom assemblies. The Phantom Assemblies are designated by a Special procurement Key (50) in the Material Master Structure.

As a result, the capacity requirements after BOM explosion does not fall on the phantom Material, but on the component levels of the phantom BOM's.

Is it possible to use a CIF user exit to change the special procurement key while CIF'ing the PDS to APO. The objective is to "un"phantom that level of the BOM structure so that we can find capacity requirements at that level? Is there a simpler way to achieve this?

Thanks,

RP

    Hi,

    You can switch off the Phantom assembly in the BOM. Select the Phantom component in the BOM and go to item details screen

    and then switch off the Phantom assembly .

    Thanks,

      Hello Nandha,

      Thanks for the reply.

      In that case, the structure will cease to be phantom assembly in R/3, right? That is not what the Client desires, however.

      Because of its relevance to Costing, the BOM and Routing in R/3 cannot be changed. The consumption is desired and designed to happen along the reporting points.

      Any change that will "unphantom" the BOM has to happen outside of R/3 either in CIF user-exits or after it is CIF'ed. Does it make sense?

      Thanks,

      Rakesh

    Hi,

    You need to check with CIF_IMPORT, BADI /SAPAPO/CURTO_CREATE to change any required data transferred from SAP R/3. You need to work with a technical person(ABAPER) to dig into this BADI and see whether you have ways to remove the special procurement 50 to plan as per the business requirement.

      Hi

      Use method CIF_IMPORT of Business Add-In /SAPAPO/CUTRO_CREATE to change the data transferred from ECC.

      You can get more details about the PDS Enhancement object under

      SPRO>>Integration with SAP Components>> Integration via APO Core Interface (CIF)>>Application-Specific Settings and Enhancements>>Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) for the Production Data Structure (PDS)

      Regards

      Sorry for the late reply. I was busy with my work and did not check the sdn forum for a long time.
