What's New Viewer - SAP S/4HANA

Configure BOP Variant

This app has been enhanced to support stock transport orders and offer usability improvements for the definition and maintenance of BOP variants, as well as a similar look and feel to the other backorder processing (BOP) apps for advanced Available-to-Promise (aATP), Configure BOP Segment and Monitor BOP Run.

In addition, the app now offers the option of specifying the execution method, the selected document type and the business scenario for which the BOP variant is to be used during an availability check.

Additional Details

As in previous releases, you can use this app to define a BOP variant, including an optional combination of filters and prioritizers, with which you can automate rescheduling and redistribution of materials in limited supply based on the defined execution method(s) (Available-to-Promise and/or Supply Assignment). You can trigger a subsequent backorder processing run in active or simulation mode.

With SAP S/4HANA 1709, multiple usability and simplification improvements for the creation and maintenance of BOP variants have been implemented:
  • New BOP variants are now created on the basis of a predefined BOP segment that is assigned by default to the confirmation strategy Redistribute.

  • Existing BOP variants can be copied and re-used.

  • Multiple BOP segments can be re-ordered simultaneously within a BOP variant, with the details of each BOP segment being available for display after the BOP variant has been saved.

  • Automatic validation of BOP variant names when the BOP variant is saved, thereby ensuring that duplicates or illegal characters are avoided.

  • One-click defintion of BOP segments as global segments

  • One-click assignment of new BOP segments to new or existing confirmation strategies

  • One-click simulation of BOP runs, with the results of the last BOP runs displayed by branching to the Monitor BOP App.
