    No. The only thing is that the production areas must be separate. It doesn't make sense to have the same physycal work center both as resource and WC in SAP.

    Also, a certain material is manufactured either with PP or PPPI, not both.

    On a more general level, do you really need to use both? From an implementation and usability point of view you should avoid such a situation, even if systemwise it is possible.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    There is no impact if you using both PP & PPPI for same plant.It is like some area require PI sheet functionality & another area require discrete functionality I had used both functionality in the same plant in my project .There was no issue.

    Hi,

    The work Areas should be different, different stor locations, if the business process is a combination of both discrete and preocess, no issue you can proceed.

    Hi,

    No such any impact. but in case in future, if you implement BI module or any report is developed for consolidated production.

    That become difficult task, you have to consider different tables. It result in dificult in consolidation.

    Try to use any one, if possible because you can carry out major think in one PPPI or PP.

      Hi,

      There is no issue. Even we have used PP and REM in our single plant, no separate storage locations needed. Just Order type would be different but in your case that can be the same as you are using PP and PPPI almost similiar. Yes as far as BI is concerned the things need to be handled very technically but in case of Z Tables and Z Queries other wise if you are using LIS than no need to worry about it. It lot depend on your BI Consultant/Functional Consultant how they implement it. Some Master data Tables can also be used to address the problem in BI Reports.

      Thanks
