ATD Receipt and ATD Issues


We can maintain the Category Group values for ATD Receipt and ATD Issues at following 3 places:

Planning area - Assignment to Key figure

Location Master: In SNP tab

Product Master: In SNP2 tab

I want to know which value gets the preference if it’s maintained at more than 1 place or all places?

    Hi Yogesh,

    The category group or category assignment to a key figure in planning area maintenance represents the relationship between the given key figure and business objects/transactional data. In the planning book, it groups the assigned orders (based on category or category assignment) in time-phased manner and show up the quantity.

    With respect to SNP's deployment and TLB, category groups ATD issues and receipts represents the demand and supply elements respectively. These groups are required to generate stock transfer proposals to meet demand based on specified business rules. The order of priority in consideration of these two category groups is as follows.

    Priority 1: Location product master (t.code /sapapo/mat1) - SNP tab

    Priority 2: Location master (t.code /sapapo/loc3) - SNP tab

    Priority 3: ATR and ATI category groups (System default and maintained through configuration)

    (SPRO->APO->SCP->SNP->Basic Settings->Maintain Category Groups)

      Thanks Rajesh,

      I verified the planning areas settings. As I mentioned earlier, in planning area, the values are different than ATR and ATI.

      For business requirements to consider planned orders as well in deployment, we created customized groups and assigned those to ATD receipt and issues key figures.

      We do have category groups assigned in Location-Product master (ATR and ATI)

      During ATD calculations, system refers the category group from planning area.

      Also in your 1st reply, you mentioned that default settings are ATR and ATI.

      I checked the SPRO configuration for category groups, where it is defined that default is ATR /ATI?

      Is there any setting maintained in SPRO?

      Thanks for your help!
