Matl Types in APO

Hi All,

I want to use material type (like FERT, KMAT, etc) in APO on some of my enhancements. I think matl types are not available in APO. Is there a way out? Has anyone used any other logic to find matl/prod type in APO?

Thanks

    HI Andy,

    Material types cannot be identified in APO system.

    There is a alternate way to identify them which I have used for planning in APO system.

    There is a field called Production planner in product master in Admin tab, which is equivalent to MRP controller in Material master. By mapping this you will be able to identify the materials while planning

    Thanks and regards

    • Hi SB,

      We have configurable materials & material variants. When the matl type is that of a variant we want to use the char values from the Prod Master, else goto the Sales Order. This while doing some enhancements on the Purchase Orders & Production Orders, over in APO

      Thanks

    Hi Andy,

    You can bring Material type in APO using CIF user exits and store that value in product master in APO.

    For this you have to define freely available fields in product master and you can update this field in CIF user exit.

    Use CIFMAT01 user exit on R/3 side in which for every material it will read its material type and update the extra field in APO directly.Further you can refer this field in APO product master for check which you want to implement.

    Regards,
