GATP: How to consider SNP Deployment demand (EG) into ATP check ?

Hello experts,

we have a location 1000 where we run GATP. This location serves customers directly (via normal SalesOrders) and serves other locations like a DC via STOs. Serving other location is done (in a nutshell) using SNP which creates SNP STOs and afterwards we run Deployment to push out avialable stock. We would like to consider the so called "SNP Deployment Requisitions" (EG - "Deployment: Release for stk transf. req") as demand which the GATP product availability check should take into account. By this we would like to make sure "serving other locations" from locaiton 1000 is accounted for while performing ATP check for the Sales Orders in location 1000.

Problem: ATP category EG has been added to the ATP customizing (check control in SPRO) - but these SNP Deployment Reqs do not have a "confirmed qty" looking into RRP3 / ATP tab - only a required qty. THis means these elements are not considered while doing an ATp check although the demand categorty is in scope of the ATP check. I checked the cumulation rules - we are using 3 (consider req qty during create, consider conf qty during chg) - but this doesn't help even with the other rules we have there.

I wonder if there is a way to tell the system to consider the ATP cat. EG as demand correctly - even without a confirmed qty. Or, does somebody known how to generate/make SNP deployment reqs "with conf qty" (I checkded SNP deployment heuristicsdocumentation and SAP help etc. - without any result).

    Hi Thomas

    Are you transferring the deployment demand to R/3 and converting to STO? If they move to R/3 as STR and converted to STO, then they should be considered for availability check while remaining in STR/STO.

    • Hello Sai,

      I believe that SAP has somewhere within the last release/updates in SCM removed this way of including EG Orders into a BOP run and confim them. We have not been trying again after 2011 to use my earlier approach (running a "mini-BOP" only for EG Orders) since we ran into the problem that the scheduling dates between supplying and target location got lost performing a BOP confirmation on such EG orders. Example: Transp.Time in "unconfirmed" EG Order = 30 days --> after BOP run on such we had only 2 days basically lost its scheduling dates). Therefore we stopped this in 2012.

      Right now we plan to look at running TLB in the HUB location directly after SNP Deployment in order to secure this demand by creating the STOs and Deliveries on such. If you use extended scheduling in ERP MM for such STOs you should be able to consider them into your BOP run as "confirmed" qty lines.

      I'm not aware that SAP has made an attempt to allow securing SNP Deployment demand in the supplying plant for usage of GATP in a way to really support inventory allocation between Customer Orders vs HUB demand (deployed SNP PReqs) in a DC loaction.
