I am working on Product interchangeability in CTM in SCM 5.0
I have a PPM with 2 components in it. One component A is predecessor and B is successor. A is valid until 30.12.2010 and B starts on 31.12.2010 and valid until 31.12.9999
I created a interchangeability group type Suppression chain with A as predecessor and B as successor with the following settings
Valid-from Date 01.11.2010
Use-up Strategy Yes
In the CTM profile there are couple of configs that i did to consider this interchangeability.
1. Product interchangeability: Use Discontinuation (Strategies tab)
2. Product interchangeabilty: Use Discontinuation (Master data selection)
When i am running the CTM, even though there is enough demand on A after 01.11.2010 and supply shortage on B after 01.11.2010, it is not creating any substitution orders...rather it is creating purchase req's using up supplies of A
Not sure if i am missing any setitngs here...Any ideas??
