Can we maintain sales order priority in PP/DS?

Hi All

We are working for Cable manufacturing firm and wish to plan as per sales order priority in PP/DS. Presently we are using customized length based planning heuristics (which is customised form of SAP_PP_002) for creating planned orders.

We understand that the heuristics will plan as per requirement date of sales orders. But can we introduce sales priority. If we need to go for enhancement, please let us know the functional module which we need to use in the customized length based heuristics.

Our finished product is configurable material with make-to-order (strategy group u2013 26) and semi-finished product strategy is planning with final assembly (strategy group u2013 40). Accordingly, check modes are 047 and 050 respectively.

    ??? It is unclear what you mean when you say "plan as per sales order priority". Sales order priority is not usually managed during planning, but is instead normally managed during sales order availability checking, or during BackOrder Processing. The Check modes that you mentioned are relevant for availability checking, not normally relevant for planning.

    Anyhow, it doesn't really matter. As long as you can define in detail how you want your planning to be done, you can do it. Since you are already using a custom heuristic, you can modify your current heuristic to meet your new specs. Just change the custom code. Your developers should already know where to make the changes.

    Best Regards,

    here is a proposal:

    you first need to assign the priority to the sales order items in APO. That can be done via the LPRIO field in the sales order.

    Then you need to maintain that the sales order priority shall be inherited to the planned orders.

    [Determination of the Order Priority |]

    Make the setting in your heuristic:

    Sort Procedure : 1. Order Priority 2. chronological order

    With that the system sorts the requirements by priority and time.

    • Ok,

      you also want to filter for priorities.

      If you would set the Sort Procedure in the heuristic as I explained before to according to priority 1 and the desired availability date/time 2. The higher prioritized SOs would get planned first.

      To filter out all SO with priority 3 you need to implement

      Definition name /SAPAPO/RRP_PLANNING

      Definition short text BAdI for Procurement Planning Heuristics in PP


      PEGID_GET_IO Change the Receipts and Reqs After Reading from liveCache



      delete all SO with PRIO_REQ = 3.
