Would it be possible for you to update the order of execution to include Supply Protection. Also, where does ABC (Alternative Based Confirmation) come in regarding the sequence of checks.
Supply protection is compatible with BOP .
You can use both product allocation and SUpply protection.
Nice blog, can you share more step after that? it's will be more helpful if there is a complete example. thanks!
Business Function S4H_AATP is an Always-On Business Function (at least in our S4 1909 system), hence no one has to execute step 0, am I right?
Do you know any aATP BOP job log report where we can download.
You can run in the backend the following program via SE38 : ATP_BOP_RUN
