Dynamic Safety Stock not considered during PPDS Plng

Hi experts,

Because of the customer business requirements, we have to set up the

dynamic safety stock in PPDS.I have followed instruction of sap note

855592, 517898 and 761872 however PP heuristics does not take the

dynamic safety stock or days supply values into account when creating

the recipts. However If I use SNP location heuristic in the SNP

planning book and planning results take into account the dynamic safety

stock quantities entered .

I have done the following actions:

Version 000 is Take Safety Stock into Account for PPDS, as per

recommended in SAP Help, I filled it with value 2, consider virtual

safety stocks elements. SAP help states that method 3 does not support

dynamic safety stock.

I activated Planning Area 9ASNP05, and I am using standard planning

book 9ASNP_SSP. I assign Planning Area 9ASNP05 in the Global parameters

in the PPDS Customizing.

I also make active PPDS customizing u201CMake SNP Key Figures Availableu201D,

the Safety Stock function is set for Key Figure 9ASAFETY.

For the material, I am using safety stock method MB in the product

master tab, actually I need to use MZ but I thought that I would be

easier to test first with MB. Units of measurement conversion between

material base unit and planning area base of unit are correctly


There is RFC connection for the BW client u2013 I read that this also in

above SAP Note.

I have also tried to run the SNP Safety Stock planning just in case but nothing

occurs (/SAPAPO/MDSP_PB),I get a message that says that product cannot be planned

successfully because it has not extended safety stock method. I am not

expecting to see any safety stock order in the product view, I am not

running safety stock heuristic ( /SAPAPO/HEU_PLAN_SAFETY_STOCK) as SAP

states that it does not support Dynamic methods; I just need that PP

Heuristics consider the variables safety stock or days supply values

maintained into the Planning Book.

Thanks for your suggestions
