PO/PR release strategy using BRFplus

Hello Gurus,

we would like to create a complex release strategy for PO and PR, where the standard customizing is not flexible enough.

I would like to know if someone already used BRFplus in this case to use the workflow release strategy via user exit to call a BRFplus application?

Or are there some other expierence to build a flexible release strategy?

Thanks a lot

    If I am right BRF is available for PR with SSP application and not directly as a replacement for Release Strategy in PR and PO. But I am not totally sure if this is available in ECC for all applications. But found the following Note, check if it has any relevance:

    Note 1690479 - ERP SSP Workflow Simplification

    BRF is used in SRM as Process Controlled Workflow from SRM 7.0, so better raising an OSS Message with SAP might help in gathering further details about this functionality availability in ECC applications.

    Also check in the following path as well, and see if it can help you in gathering more details:

    SPRO > Cross-Application Basic Settings > General Application Functions > Business Rule Framework

    Whenever you have a code exit you may plug in BRFplus. BRFplus <> BRF. BRFplus is the latest and most powerful rules technology in the ABAP stack. You can define strategies of any complexity with it.

    With the Add-on SAP NetWeaver Decision Service Management you have BRFplus in it latest version available to all servers in your landscape regardless of the NetWeaver release. You can update the productive systems in a controlled way without lengthy technical processes such as transport management.

    Hi Ralph,

      We have a very similar case and we are evaluating the possibility of doing the same thing. Our idea is to create in standard MM as many release strategies as combinations of release codes exist. Then we would transfer control to brf which will determine the necessary release strategy. After that, we need to figure out a way of using the brf output (the release strategy) to plug it into standard MM avoiding or overwriting the classification system, in order to keep everything else standard.

    Were you able to solve your problem?

    Does anybody knows if someone has done this before?

    Thanks

    Diego

    If you like we can have a call to discuss how best to do this with BRFplus (or NW DSM).

    Hi Ralph,

    As per as i Know the BRF+ is not comes with ECC, It Must need Plug in your system  it it applicable for instance like MDM,MDG, SRM ,  also as per as  BRF+ is concern it applicable for The Business Object That mean even if it applicable it will not for PO release procedure . 

    so it mean If you have data model as Purchase order and you apply BRF+ then all PO will go for Release rather then ECC  Release procedure  according some criteria.
