Discontinuation Indicator not getting picked up in CO01, but is running smoothly with MRP

Former Member

Hello Gurus,

I have material M1 that has been discontinued and has been replaced by M2. The item in the BoM has also been maintained to allow for this.

This process has been running smoothly when driven by MRP. It also works well when converting planned orders to prd orders CO40 + CO41.

This issue is when we need to manually create pr orders CO01. It also doesn't work when manually creating a planned order MD11 and converting it.

Any ideas?

Hello

I suggest you to read carefully the following note, which explains the discontinuation process in detail:

43636Discontinued parts

This note provides the below information:


In the discontinued parts procedure, the system only automatically redirects the dependent requirements in materials planning. As of Release 3.0C, when you create reservations manually, the system generates a warning (or an error message - this can be set in Customizing) stating that this is a reservation for a discontinued part after the effective-out date. For dependent reservations for a production order, the discontinued parts is carried out in accordance with the ATP situation at the time of the availability check.

It means that the discontinuation only happens when MRP plan the components of a planned order, not during the BOM explosion from MD11.
