How does Tight Coupling work in SAP IBP?



We are facing some issues with the planning object initialization, I mean we have generated the planning object, but we cannot make adjustments in some periods. I think that IBP functionality of Tight Coupling would be a feasible solution, but I am not sure of how does it work or how to configure it.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi emunozfabra2

Tight coupling of Planning Object refers to the process of administering the planning objects based on the Master data availability.

This feature is associated with order-based planning where-in the planning level will be specified with tight-coupling abilities such as 'Create Planning Objects automatically' and 'Delete Planning Objects only if Master Data is deleted'. Also the planning level will be specified with which Master Data it will refer for the planning object association.

With reference to the Master data specified and the tight-coupling features enabled, Planning Objects will be created/deleted automatically.
