Business Function Enhancement of the DSD Process (/DSD/BF)

You can use this business function in a mobile Direct Store Delivery (DSD) scenario to exchange selected data between a mobile device and the DSD back-end system using occasional online synchronization.

During this synchronization, the data is exchanged using interfaces for an availability check in Sales and Distribution (Available-to-Promise (ATP) check) and for price determination in the back-end system. This real-time data exchange enables drivers to access the latest data and react quicky to unforseen situations at the customer (such as inquiries about prices or stock).

Note Note

If you want to use this DSD scenario with a mobile application, you must implement a mobile application on your mobile device that meets the requirements for using the business function interfaces for the ATP check and pricing.

Note that the SAP MDSD applications up to and including MDSD4.0 do not meet these prerequisites for the business function.

For more information about Mobile Direct Store Delivery (MDSD), see SAP Note 755712, which is updated continuously, and the documentation on the necessary settings for each function.

End of the note.


The functions of the business function are completely integrated in Direct Store Delivery.

The mobile application can use the corresponding interface of business function /DSD/OCS to send a query to the DSD back-end system, requesting an available-to-promise (ATP) check or price determination:

  • The back-end system can determine if and when the requested materials are available.

  • The back-end system can determine the correct prices for all requested materials.

The DSD back-end system provides the mobile application with the results. Depending on the mobile application, the data can be further processed and is then available to the driver. The driver can carry out the next steps in the process during the tour, such as creating a new order for the customer.
