Plant material status in APO

Hi Gurus,

I have a plant material status "blocked for production" in r3. when i set this to one material and send the same to APO. the SNP planned orders are not created. This is fine and what we wanted, but iam unable to understand how the plant material status in R3 in mapped to APO,

could you share your ideas..

    I seriously doubt it works as you expect.

    Change hte MRP status to "normal" and see if SNP Planned orders get created.

    SNP and APO in general does not care what the MRP status is in ECC.

    One issue is that there are 2 in ECC: Plant specific and cross plant. So which would APO use?

      I changed the material status in the mrp view in r3 material master, and when i set it to blocked for production, send it to APO the procurement type automatically changes to P..that means the product is excluded for planning in APO..

      i have no issues with this, this is what i wanted. my question is this material status is mapped from R3 to APO..

    you may have a user exit to perform that...

    are you recreating the integration models for materials.

    Or whenever you change the material status in ECC the procurement type in APO changes in real time?

      Hi ,

      materials staus in R/3 used to identify that materials is ACTIVE or NOT

      Sameway in APO its manged by model assignment. if you assign to a model then only the material will be considred for planning. so its same like R/3 status

      But still if you dont want to move to APO just filter through status while CIFing

      thats the reason material status is not given in APO.
