Setup group in APO PDS
There is some most frequently faced issue with setup groups that is not being populated correctly in APO PDS. The below is the standard scenario how the system works:
1) You have created recipe in ECC system with operations and phases. The operation has setup group maintained in it and the phase has setup group in the setup activity which turns to be sequence dependent setup activity in APO
2) With the dynamic setup activity , the produce activity also has the setup group value passed to it in APO PDS
3) Now when the setup group is changed in setup phase and then saved in ECC system, the changed value is passed only to the sequence dependent setup activity but the produce activity is still having the old setup group
The reason for the above scenario is that, setup group changes is iherited to produce phase only if its sup.operation has no setup group maintained in it. If the operation has the setup group value maintained, then it is passed on to all its APO relevant phases where the setup group is not maintained specifically.
In order to acheive the expectation, remove the setup group from the sup.operation so the produce activity in APO inhertis its setup group from sequence dependent setup activity
