Forecast Consumption Not happening

Hi APO Gurus,

 

I am facing an issue with forecast consumption. I have created custom ATP category for sales order "Z1"and included this custom ATP category of sales order in category group of sales order--D11. This custom ATP category was created with reference to standard sales order ATP category BM. Every setting of these two ATP categories is exactly same.

 

When i create custom sales order(with ATP category "Z1") in APO using BAPI:- BAPI_SLSRVAPS_SAVEMULTI2, these sales order are not consuming forecast. I have set requirement strategy as 20 and backward/forward consumption as 999.

 

I need to have forecast consumption by these custom sales order, request your help in resolving this issue.

 

Below are few observations:-

 

1.) If i create sales order with category "BM" using same BAPI, it is consuming forecast.

2.) If i CIF sales order then also forecast consumption is happening.

3.) I have already ran utility:- /SAPAPO/CSP_CORRECT_FCST multiple times, but its not resolving this issue and doesn't give any error as well.

 

Let me know if any one of you as ever faced this issue in your experience.

 

Thanks

Akhilesh

    Which requirements strategy are you using for your in-scope product locations?  Go to the "Specify Requirements Strategies" in the IMG and double-check which Category Group is assigned to the strategy.  This is what determines which categories actually consume, not the presence of the KF in the actual SO Key Figure.  I believe if you add your custom category to the category group K01 (or even better, create a custom CatGrp and reassign to the requirements strategy you're using), then it should work.  Post back if you try this and still don't have any luck.

     

    Hint: Check the help on the field CatGrp in the Requirements strategy config.  It explains the use of the field in config for SNP.

    Hi,

    This worked perfectly! thanks a lot for your help:-)

     

    But there are still some issues:-

     

    1.) Forecast consumption in overview tab and Detail tab doesn't match. Meaning i see allocated quantity in overview tab and but don't see same in detail tab. Hence Remaining quantity also doesn't match in both views.

     

    2.) In case of standard delivery coming from ECC, when we are doing PGI it is not going in withdrawal column rather it is disappearing and increasing forecast value. Any idea why this can happen?

     

    Once again, thanks for helping me on the issue. Please let me know if you have any idea on above mentioned issues faced by me,

     

    Thanks

    AKhilesh

      I believe the program /SAPAPO/CSP_CORRECT_FCST should fix the issue you're talking about in #1... or at least that's my guess.  But for the second issue, I'm afraid I might be at a dead-end for helping.  We had to write an enhancement on my last project to accomplish what you're seeking to with consumption/reduction with SO's from an external OTC system.  I believe there are BAPI's out there to achieve both the SO/Delivery save and delete as well as the forecast reduction (but I'm less technical and more functional, so I can't recall specifically). 

       

      Anyway, I'm sorry I'm not more help!  Perhaps someone else can chime in...

    Hi,

     

    For Issue#1

     

    I have ran this utility multiple times, but its not correcting. Probably i need to raise OSS message to sort it out.

     

    For Issue#2

     

    I think i have confused you, i have two scenarios first where i have sales order/delivery coming from external system. I am not worried about them as i will not be doing PGI for such order.

     

    Second scenario which i am having is very standard scenario. I have forecast in APO and creating sales order/ delivery in ECC. When they come to APO they consume forecast. Till this point every thing is fine. As soon as i do PGI of delivery, then that quantity should move to withdrawal from allocated, but in my case its not going to withdrawal but getting removed from allocated. This is resulting in increase of forecast quantity. I am tring to resolve this issue and seeking your help.

     

     

    Thanks

      Re: Issue #2, do you have an active integration model for Req Reduction (in addition to an active IM for SOs / Deliveries)?  That's really the only thing I could think of that would cause it not to work in the standard scenario.

       

      Also, you'll want to check that the relevant materials are in active integration models.  This could cause requirement reduction not to happen because of the setting you might have in ECC transaction CFC9 for "Filter Obj. Req. Reduction."

       

      Sorry for misunderstanding!  Let me know on that point...

    Hi APO Implementer,

     

    What is Req Reduction? you are talking about having active IM for Req Reduction.

     

    Thanks
