    Hi Mukkera

    Are you talking about managing the transition between the 2 methodologies?

    We've just made the switch and had to customize one or two of the standard events, and build a look-up table, so that the first step under Collection Strategy, tied back to the last activity under Dunning Procedure.

    Regards

    Hi Mukkera,

    There is a standard program, RFKK_UPDATE_MASTERDATA, which you can use for converting Dunning Procedure to Collection Strategy.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks,

    • Hi All,

      When we are migrating to BRF from ther Classical IS-U Dunning, then Dunning Procedure becomes irrelevant and collections Strategy comes into the picture,.

      So going forward, any dunning proposal run will pick the Collection Strategy field to determine the next collection step by triggerring event 315.

      So irrespective of the fact dunning procedure field is changed or deleted after BRF has been implemented, I guess it will not have any impact on collections Treatment path as collection strategy drives the BRF workbench and not dunning procedure.

      Happy to discuss it further,

      Cheers,

      Amlan

    Mukkera,

    if you are using Collection Strategy you will need to replicate your business rules using BRF+. You can use a combination of the different types of expressions available to do so to determine the collection step. Note - there are not any dunning levels when using collection strategy.

    You will continue to use FPVA and FPVB for dunning by collection strategy.

    I hope you found this response helpful.

    regards,

    K

    Hi,

    If your question relates to mapping your Dunning Procedure steps into the Collection Strategy/ies, you can read the Dunning procedure configuration tables (i,e, TFK047* tables) and build expressions to be used to trigger Collection Steps.

    However, this would simply replicate the linear level, level 2 nature of the olding Dunning procedure. You would not be taking advantage of flexible dunning, i.e. triggering collection steps based on various events stored in several IS-U tables (with not much ABAP/function modules).

    Old dunning is based primarily on Dunning history, Open item table, and triggering of function modules. You dont have the luxury of inspecting custom tables or other IS-U tables (without ABAP/function modules).

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Ivor M.

    Hello @all,

    Take into consideration that from EhP6 you might not need to migrate from Dunning Procedure to Collection Strategies.

    This new approach is a little less flexible than Collection Strategies but is good enough to use it with companies that have been working with classic dunning for years. This approach will avoid the migration activities required when migrating from Dunning Procedures to Collection strategies, while it offers the advantages of using BRF+ to dynamically determine next steps (levels) in Dunning Procedure.

    To access this new approach you should go to FQEVENTS and try the Event 304.

    Regards,

    JC
