Dispose expired products/ Optimizer Profile/Shelf Life

  • By default, the optimizer considers the location product procurement costs that were defined on the Procurement tab page in the product master.
  • so the penalty costs for this disposal will be the quantity of Products into Procurement Cost from Product Master.
  • Is there another way to calculate the penalty Cost for Disposal Products ?
  • Can anyone help me how we can  consider the Cost Function  ?
  • cost functions defined by parameters in transaction ( /sapapo/copt10),
    Due to these cost functions the cost calculation behaves differently.
    Can anyone help with how we calculate the Penalty Cost for Disposal Products? and why we consider the Cost Function ?

    Thank you

Dear Alexander,

Costs incurred for the exceeding the shelf life is termed as Shelf life penalty cost.

These costs are globally defined in the Optimizer Profile

Go to Optimizer Profile: T-code: S_AP9_75000102

Menu path: Advanced Planning and Optimization /Supply Network Planning /Environment /Current Settings /Profiles /S_AP9_75000102 – Define SNP Optimizer Profiles

Choose an optimizer profile by double click in the list.

Go to General Constraints->

Shelf Life->

Dispose of expired product

Hope this answer your query.
