Display a calculated key figure in the product view

Need guidance on the issue.

System - SCM 4.1


A macro populates a key figure "CSSS". (I am assuming CSSS is an auxiliary key figure because I do not see it in the SNP Planning Area but I do see it in the Planning Book)

The logic in the macro is = CSSS = SSS (If u201CSBu201D Type Safety Stock) or u201CDSSSu201D (MB type safety Stock).

SSS and DSSS are Time series key figures defined in the SNP Planning Area.

The requirement is to display that key figure (CSSS) in the product view. The solution approach is to

1. Copy the key figure values (CSSS) into another key figure, u201CCSSS_1u201D (possibly Order Type).

2. Allow that key figure (CSSS_1) to be displayed in the product view because of the order category attached to it. Though I am not entirely sure, I do recognize the fact that when a key figure comes into the PPDS world it may distort the planning results because the PPDS would create additional receipts on top of the receipts SNP heuristics has created to satisfy u201CCSSSu201D key figure. But that could be headache that can wait, because I am stuck at the very first step.

If you all think that the solution approach is possible, please clarify the following for me.

As of now, I am not able to get past the first hurdle, which is converting the key figure (CSSS) to an order key figure (CSSS_1)using a new macro. Is it possible? Without de-initializing the planning area.

Please help.

Hi Rakesh,

As you mentioned, with your design, you are going to face issues after issues.

Here you are trying to use object outside of their normal use (order for a non order object) which is very risky.

What I suggest is to look at the standard option: Make SNP Key Figures Available:

In this process step you specify which Supply Network Planning (SNP) key figures (that you can define in the interactive planning for SNP) should be available in Capable-to-Match planning (CTM) or in Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS). These key figures are, for example, the time-dependent safety stocks and days' supplies.
