Deallocation of production orders in DS board

Hi

When planned order is converted into production order in ECC,production order is seen in APO as well. But this production order is in De-allocated state i.e no loading is seen on resource in DS boardand neither it is captured in any report.

When we reschedule the same , resource gets loaded and is seen in reports as well.

How to prevent De-allocation of production order after converting Planned to production order?. Any setting reqd.?

Request your views.

Regards

Hemant

    Hi ,

    While CIF transfers the production orders to APO , rescheudling occurs as per startegy profile maintained for R/3 Integration

    . It is possible that, there are scheduling issues while Production order is being transferred and hence production order gets de-allocated.

    You will find startegy profile for CIF integration , in SPRO .... APO >> PPDS >> Global Setting >>Maintain Global Parameters and Default Values

    Schedule Orders: Startegy Profiles > R/3 Integration

    Normally "SAPINTR3' startegy is used for this. Please check the strategy profile in your case and it is recommended to have Scheduling mode as "Infinite Scheduling".

    hi Hemant

    This seems to be a standard SAP behavior. We also faced the issue while converting the planned order to production order in ECC. However when the same planned order is converted to prod order in APO, the orders remains allocated. After that, even if you make any changes to the production order (excluding master data), the order remains in the allocated stage.

    We had approached SAP in this regard and they also suggested changing the ways of working.

    Check if you can adopt the same ways of working or the above previous reply helps.

      Hi Vikas,

      When you set conversion indicator it creates production order in created stage in ECC.

      For a material which is of the Make to Order strategy there are different order types of production and corresponding no. range depending on whether the order is for domestic market or export and so on and so forth. (This ECC system is up and running for last 3 years and all reports developments are done based on it )

      Now when conversion indicator is set in APO,it tries to see which production order type to be picked up for creating production order. Suppose in the work scheduling view production scheduling profile is attached it will be able to pickup appropriate order type. But since the same material can be used for domestic as well as export you can not have two scheduling profiles attached to single material.

      So as a result, system can not understand which order type to be picked up.

      But since sales order types are different for export and domestic, it will have to be worked out based on which sales order the planned order is created and correspondingly which order type to be selected for production order.

      Kindly let me know if there is work around.

      Regards

      Hemant

    Hello,

    Yes, this is standard behaviour. However , you can check user exit solution from Note 370959 for exit EXIT_/SAPAPO/SAPLCIF_ORD_001 but please check the 'Caution' mentioned in the note.
