Usual problems when LO-LIS-PLN transfers data to Demand Management
Hi colleagues, this blog deals with a common issue related to the mass processing in PP-SOP or LO-LIS-PLN.
When you transfer data to PP-MP-DEM or CO-PA through mass processing you find that some materials are not transferred.
You check that they are included in the variant created for mass processing (MC8D) however they are not included in the list of processed planning objects.
This has an explanation :
The list of planning objects to be processed by a Mass Processing job is contained in table LISPLF. This list is built up when the job variant is first defined (transaction MC8D). If new characteristic combinations are subsequently created which fall within the job selection criteria, however, the new planning objects will not be written automatically to table LISPLF.
These new characteristics can be created in MC62 ( planning hierarchy) if you work with flexible planning , or directly in MC94 if you work with standard SOP, that is with the infostructure S076.
For this reason, the new characteristic combinations will not be processed during the Mass Processing. To avoid this type of situation occurring, it is recommended to rebuild table LISPLF according to the job selection criteria each time the Mass Processing is carried out. This can be done by creating a background job with 3 steps as outlined in note 90292.
Create a master job using menue path :
“System -> Services -> Jobs-> Define job”. This job should contain three steps/reports:
1-RMCP6RES – Reset status to active
2-RMCAMUS6 – Recreate LISPLF
Report RMCAMUS6: ‘MUS’ represents the info structure your are using. If you have created your infostructure S997 the report will be RMCA9976.
3-RMCP6BIN – Transfer to demand management, executing a macro … .
This three jobs substitute the manual process that would be:MC8D , MC8E and MC8G each time a new characteristic is included.
