Plant Material Status with Future dates and SNP

Hi,

We have recently implemented APO SNP on top of our R3 system. Previously when we were just using MRP in R3 we would use either the Plant Specific Material Status or the Cross Plant Material Status fields with a valid from date in the future when we planned a product withdrawal. This had the effect of not allowing Planned orders or purchase requisitions to be generated after the relvant date.

Having now implemented SNP, Planned orders are being generated there and the Material Status field with a future date functionality does not work when the planned orders are CIF'd to R3.

Does anyone know what options there are available in SNP to prevent planning after a certain date in the future ?

Thanks

hi,

if you are also using DP, please try the product lifecycle transaction to enter a phase-out profile for your product. inside this transaction, you can enter how long the product can generate forecast requirements. snp will then only plan the periods where there are forecast requirements.

cheers,
