Finite Scheduling

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 a Capacity Availability popup error is returned with option to select Finite Scheduling or Cancel.

If we select cancel then this is ignored; however, if you 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 would like to have Finite Scheduling  functionality when using IDOCs/BAPIs. Have not implemented APO.

This is more of a question to production planning folks, hence can you close this thread and post in production planning forum?
