Material Availability Check in APO PPDS

Hello Experts,


We are in to a SAP APO PP/DS implementation project. We don’t have APO DP & SNP in place. We are doing planning in ECC & cif the planned orders into APO system.

Here we do the detailed scheduling & optimized the demand plan in executable manner. We are doing finite scheduling for available capacity.

Once the optimum planned is achieved, client wants the material availability check before releasing the final optimum plan to shop floor. By this time we have run the fixed pegging heuristic to make a relationship between SFG & FG. But If any packing material or raw material is not there than they do not want to include the same in to the plan.

Kindly suggest the functionality to do a full kitting in APO PPDS at the planned order level before freezing the monthly or weekly plan.

Appreciate your concern and thanx in advance.

Regards,


Balraj

    Hi Balraj

    Do you already have APO GATP in landscape or you want to do availability check in ECC? In case you have/configure either of them, availability check can be triggered from ECC for Planned Order or during conversion of Planned Order into Production Order. I think you cannot call availability check directly from PPDS but I am not 100% sure.

    Thanks,

    Hi Balraj,

    Try using bottom up heuristics. This heuristic will try to see the receipt element at the bottom and then re-align the FG receipt element; i.e it will try to see the Purchase requisition time and then realign the first level orders; then first level orders can be used to re-align second level and finally the FG orders.

    So orders having stock as receipt will be scheduled closure to the production; Plan Orders for whom Purchase reqs have been generated - purchase time will be considered and accordingly the Plan order will be moved further in future.
