Transportation Shipment Scheduling for SO

Hi

I need your help in understanding what am I missing in setting up Transportation & Shipment Scheduling in APO.

I created transportation shipment tables, access seq, mappings in APO and have activated Transportation shipment for SO in ERP. However as we dont want to use GATP but only the transportation shipment scheduling functionality (specially the scheduling using condition type) so I dont want to activate ATP in CIF IMs so have activated Schd SO for VMI in IMs. (which I think are sufficient for this purpose).

Also the route determination was already active in the ERP, but now we intend to do this in APO.

However after all the above settings this is still not working, the time from TRAN condition type is not being picked up by the SO rather, its just picking up route duration from ERP.

Could you guys please give some suggestion ideas to solve this.

Thanks in advance

R

    Hi R,

    Transportation & shipment scheduling is done when you do the ATP check in APO, so I believe that what you want to do is not possible, if you do not activate ATP check CIF model.

      Hi RK,

      Maybe you may debug FM APO_SCHEDULING, which is responsible of 'deciding' if the acheduling must be done in ECC side or APO side.

      At least it will help you to know if there is something missing in ECC side or in APO side.

      Also, could you please check if activating ATP IM for one material, scheduling is done in APO as you want? Just to be sure that scheduling is working correctly.

      Best regards

    Hi RK,

    As per SAP scheduling with condition technique only works if you are satisfying following conditions;

    The system only executes scheduling using the condition technique if neither scheduling using configurable process scheduling nor scheduling based on SNP master data is used; in other words, the following conditions are fulfilled:

    • The system does not find a process alias via the assignment of the condition type list.
    • The system does not find a process alias via the assignment of the item category to the process
      alias.
    • You have not activated extended scheduling for VMI sales orders.
    • The target location is not a VMI customer or no location-dependent product master data
      exists.

    So i believe you need to explore "Scheduling based on SNP master data" for your requirement.
