Additional Details

As in previous releases, you can use this app to define a BOP segment containing a set of rules with which to prioritize the distribution of supply when the demand for the materials in sales orders and stock transport orders exceeds the available inventory or capacity. Using a combination of filters and prioritizers, you can automate rescheduling and redistribution in line with your company strategy.

With SAP S/4HANA 1709, the BOP Segment List screen contains a new column, Related Variants, that states the number of BOP variants in which a particular BOP segment is used. By clicking on the number, you can display the BOP variant name(s), the assigned confirmation strategies and global segment information, as well as branch to the Configure BOP Variant app where you can edit the BOP variant(s) and use all functionality offered as standard by the app.
