Planned Order to Production order conversion


We are using CTM to create PP/DS planned orders in APO. We are using MTO strategy with Charachteristic dependent planning.

The issue is that when we create PP/DS planned order in APO and CIF it eo ECC it is automatically getting converted to Production Order in ECC.

This behaviour is their only in the case of configurable material i.e. CDP, when I create planned order for non configurable material the planned order is not converted to production order.

Also when I check in product view i.e. /sapapo/rrp3 the conversion indictor is not set.

Can anyone please help in understanding what all settings govern the automatic conversion of planned order to production order and probable solution.

Thanks & Regards,

Sanjog Mishrikotkar

    In-house production orders with CDP characteristics are usually created as planned orders in SAP APO, and converted to production orders (process orders) during the transfer to SAP R/3.

    As the SAP R/3 planned order cannot have its own configuration, orders with CDP characteristics are created in SAP R/3 as production orders.

    Check in SPRO settings "Maintain Global Parameters and Defaults" under PPDS Customising

    Transfer to R3 inhouse production " Create Transfer events from Conversion indicator is set or not"

    Try with this setting and check for the transfercreating Prodn orders.
