Introduction

SAP Digital Manufacturing provides important feature to display the POD message automatically during nonconference at operation which is nothing but a NC Disposition Hook point. In SAP DM there is no any opportunity to configure the hook point at POST_DISP(Nonconformance at POST disposition) or PRE_DISP(Nonconformance at PRE Disposition).

In SAP ME, POST_DISP hook point configuration of nonconformance means when you are clicking on the “Done” button, first executes the custom development code(if you have any custom development) and then SAP ME standard behaviour will be executed.

In SAP ME, PRE_DISP hook point configuration of nonconformance means when you are clicking on the “Done” button, first SAP ME standard behaviour will be executed and then custom development code(if you have any custom development) will be executed.

In SAP DM there is no way to configure the hook point at POST_DISP or PRE_DISP of nonconformance but you can add the business rule on Manage Automation Triggers app to execute the Production process where you can write the business logic as per the requirement and then it will be executed like as Nonconformance POST_DISP hook point.

Here first display the Log NC message and then Custom message will display after clicking on the Add button during the nonconformance in SAP DM. Once click on the Done button, disposition related message will display.
