Finite Capacity Planning using Orders05 IDOC and BAPIs

Former Member

Question: How can we achieve Finite Scheduling when creating Orders using IDOCs and BAPIs like bapi_salesorder_createfromdat2 or bapi_salesorder_simulate?

Process information:

During VA01 - sales order entry (consisting of a MTO material), the item category dictates that a production order is created.

During the production order creation a capacity availability check of the concerning work center is completed.

If the work center is overloaded for the days scheduled, then this error is returned.

If we select cancel then this is ignored; however, if you select the other options and then select finite scheduling, the response is to shift the production order (and thus the sales order) dates to an appropriate time with capacity.

Creating MTO Sales Orders using IDOCS/BAPIs our Production work centers are overloaded. We need Finite Capacity Scheduling  functionality when using IDOCs/BAPIs. Have not implemented APO.

Hi Jim,

                Have you activated finite scheduling flag in ECC work center? If not please maintain the field.
