PPDS Planned orders with setup driving requirements in R/3


Hi Gurus -

We plan Finished Goods and Semi-FG in APO and send the planned and process orders over to R/3. We use the change-over matrix(set-up)matrix to create the set-up times for the finished good planned orders.

For a material I have 24 hours change-over time. Lets say material runs on tuesday 3 PM, the setup time is 24 hours before that.

Setup time: Monday 3 PM to Tuesday 3 PM

Run Time: Tuesday 3PM onwards.

Unfortunately the Packaging requirements are being shown on Monday itself. While I have setup or change-over time, I don't really need the packaging materials on monday. So what can we do to avoid this?

Basically as soon as the APO planned order hits R/3, the BOM in R/3 is being exploded based on the order start date/time and not based of actual runtime of the order.

For MRP folks, its misleading since the packaging items are not really needed on monday.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
