Hi, This appears to be a bit lengthy but not so and so request all to spare a few minutes for the same
We have ECC and APO in our system. In APO we have GATP, SNP,PP/DS etc.
A new requirement came wherein we need to create a new quotation and new sales order type. These two new documents will represent the make to order scenario. Iam an SD consultant and new to APO . In fact the APO settings are done by some other consultant
The client wanted to trigger creation of planned order in APO from quotation and reserve capacity in PP/DS. Also when the planned order are created in APO_GATP , there are STRs also created in APO-GATP at the same time to move the material among various locations. The STRs are converted into
The new quotation and sales order document have the same requirement class ZYK associated with it. The account assignment category is E for the requirement class which makes it make to order object.
Now when we are creating quotation, the schedule lines are confirmed based on planned order created in APO. The issue is when we create a sales order document with reference to quotation, the account assignment in Sales order is the quotationdocument. When STRare converted to STO, the account assignment in STO is the quotation document and not the sales order ! Even the planned orders have quotation as account assignment
The above behavior is standard as per SAP. When a quotation is also a make to order object, all subsequent documents have account assignment as quotation.
To solve the above issue, I created a new requirement class for quotation without account assignment category E but the issue is that the quotation schedule lines do not get confirmed since planned orders are not created in APO.
How to solve the below problem
How to have schedule lines confirmed in quotation with planned orders created for them in APO. At the same time we do not want quotation to behave as make to order object. That is we do not want E in account assignment in requirement class for quotation. The client needs this since they want to reserve capacity during quotation stage ?
Once we have the above issue resolved, then we will not have quotation as account assigned object in sales orders created with ref to such quotations and then only sales orders will be account assigned object in STO;s and planned orders .
