SAP APO PPDS - Resource planned order

Hi experts SAP,

I am looking for your help, in APO we are using PDS with alternative modes, we activated the BADI CUSLNTRTO_ADDIN because we need that every PDS has different modes (each mode is one version in R/3) for the scheduling. With this we are looking that the PPDS Optimizer considers all alternative resources.

The problem that we are facing is the following:

When we populate manually a planned order with the transaction /SAPAPO/RRP3 for a product with several PDS and we select one of them, the system records the planned order with the PDS that we selected, but with the resource that has the best priority, sometimes the resource with the best priority is different to the resource of the PDS

Due to the previous situation the planned order is reported in different resources:

- In APO (RRP3) in the resource assigned for the system (with the best priority)

- In R/3 (CM01) in the resource of the PDS

How can I get both or one of the following points?

- The transaction RRP3 selects the resource of the selected PDS and no the resource with the best priority

- In R/3 the transaction CM01 reports the planned order in the resource assigned to the order and no in the resource of the production version

Best Regards

    Hi Arnulfo,

    I sort of feel the same as GS.I interpret your issue as follows, is it correct?

    Product has thres PDS- PDS1, PDS2 and PDS3. In each PDS, there are alternative modes.

    PDS1: modes using resource R1, R2, R3, R4

    PDS2: modes using resource RR1, RR2, RR3, RR4

    PDS3: modes using resource RRR1, RRR2....

    Issue: create an order in RRP3 using PDS1, the modes are changed to RR1/2... or RRR1/2.

    Best regards,

    Tiemin

    Hi Cordero,

    Your question is not very clear to me. Can you pls explain a bit more.

    In first para you have stated that you need every PDS to have different modes and in second para you have stated that you chosse the PDS out of several available PDS. Does this mean that for a single Product -- you have several PDS and inside each PDS you have several resources as different modes ?

      Hi,

      I really apreciate your help

      You got the right idea:

      1) We have several PDS for one product, because we can produce this product in several resources

      2) Every PDS has several modes (each mode is one version in R/3). With this we are looking that the PPDS Optimizer considers all alternative resources and can change the resource of the planned order
