Not able to generate Purchase requisitions out of the OBP Supply plan Run(Plant to Plant)

Hi All,

I am trying to generate Purchase requisitions out of the OBP Supply plan Run in the 7F Planning area.

Factory 1 is of type Plant(P), and the demand location is DC( as location type P as well).

The stock transfer setting in Tlane is "0" standard order not "7", still, the OBP engine is creating an STR as shown above and I want to have Purchase requisition instead.

I understood that if we have "supplier" (V) then we will get Purchase requisition, but we wanted to have a sort of subcontracting capacity planning process.

Can anyone please suggest some settings by which we can acheive plant to plant purchase requisition somehow else let us know how to configure Vendor capacities in OBP?

Thanks, Rahul

hi Rahul,

We are working on a similar kind of scenario. In my opinion you can model your capacity in the following way. Make your source location as a vendor ( v) in ibp. This would ensure that you have a purchase requisition created between the source and destination. Now in order to model capacity utilise the transportation capacity ( transportation resource) . But in this case there will be some challenges in maintaining the capacity if you have multiple lanes from the same source going to multiple DC's .This is more of a standard approach that we have thought of as the challenges to making any changes in the rti badi is still not explored in the broader forum.

Thanks

Hi rahul.kumar124

By default OBP will create STR for movements between plants and DC in OBP. This is the standard behaviour.Now coming to your point that you have vendors and you want to model them with capacity. Both options are possible like generating PREQs for movement between plant to DC and modelling capacity for vendors. I have done both, but here is my 1 cent based on my exprience.
  • First of all in order to acheive any of the above option you need to leverage BADI's in ECC or S4. This URL will give you a head start.
  • But i would suggest not to go for the option of modelling capacity for vendors, as the quantun of change and modification in those BADIs are huge, little less than a nightmare I would say, plus you will have to maintain and create quite a few custom tables to meet this requirement and it has serious performance issues during integration.
  • The other option of creating PREQs is a better approach where in you can leverage the below BADIs to generate PREQs for movement between plant to DC
  • /IBP/ECC_MODIFY_PREQ
  • /IBP/ECC_ABAP_OUT
  • /IBP/ECC_ABAP_IN
  • In short you have to maintain a rule table in ECC or S4 that the BADI will lookup. By default OBP will generate STRs, while transferring those STRs thie BADIs will come into action and chnage the STR to PREQS before they get updated in the order EXT table and before commiting those orders in ECC or S4. Once the PREQs are created in ECC or S4, you can use SDI inbound to pull those PREQS and before pulling ensure that you delete the STRs in IBP.
Hope this helps

Thanks, Ayan.

Looks promising, we will look into this.

Does the above BADIs support the merge of STRs while sending as well?

Thanks,

Hey Ayan & Rahul

our link and BADIs refer to the BADIs used in Planning Areas supported by SDI, which would be the SAP7 planning areas and no /IBP/xxx_EXT tables, but CIF-like queue entries.

Rahul you are referring to 7F, so I assume you refer to RTI-based flexibel planning area, correct?

In that case there is no AddOn for the integration and other BADIs are relevant. Check Online Help for Real Time Integration , BADIs are described with each sub-chapter.

However, concept might remain similar

Hi Irmi,

You're right that am talking about 7F, the link is helpful but we have a big concern that the "STR" which goes from IBP to S4 will convert it to "PR" consistently ? and want the Pegging back in IBP, how to achieve this? Help on this would be really appreciated.

Also want to know risk around deleting the STRs at IBP side before pulling the PRs back in IBP ..

Thanks,

Rahul
