PPDS Planned orders with setup driving requirements in R/3

Former Member

Hi Gurus -

We plan Finished Goods and Semi-FG in APO and send the planned and process orders over to R/3. We use the change-over matrix(set-up)matrix to create the set-up times for the finished good planned orders.

For a material I have 24 hours change-over time. Lets say material runs on tuesday 3 PM, the setup time is 24 hours before that.

Setup time: Monday 3 PM to Tuesday 3 PM

Run Time: Tuesday 3PM onwards.

Unfortunately the Packaging requirements are being shown on Monday itself. While I have setup or change-over time, I don't really need the packaging materials on monday. So what can we do to avoid this?

Basically as soon as the APO planned order hits R/3, the BOM in R/3 is being exploded based on the order start date/time and not based of actual runtime of the order.

For MRP folks, its misleading since the packaging items are not really needed on monday.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Check in routing the assignment of packaging materials to the operation.

Or else why can't you try the lead time offset for an operation/Order in the BOM.

Hi Nanda -

Thanks for the reply. The packaging materials are assigned to the Runtime operation and not the setup operation. Also, not sure if I can use the lead time offset as ithe setup time will be different depending on the finished good combination.

Hi Varun,

Have you mapped setup and run as two activities in same resource or seperate operations all together.

If compoenents are assigned to run then are dates getting calculated correct ly in APO and only getting chaged in ECC?

In ECC there is configuration for production/process order under scheduling parameters for production order where you can decide whether component should be assigned to run activity or set up activity but unfortunately this config is not available planned order.

If you have defined set up and run as seperate operation then there shold not be problem check config in ECC

Define scheduling parameters for planned order- adjust dates- adjust schduling should be adjust basic date and dependent requirement to operation date.

Hi Santosh -

Thanks for the reply. Setup and Run are currently separate operations. The problem I'm facing is with the Packaging Items and Raw materials which go directly into the final operation of the process. These are not planned in APO, only in R/3. The semi-FG which are planned in APO all have the correct dates.

The Adjust Dates field is set to what you have recommended.

Any other solution?
