Use

In the Monitor apps, you can open a quickview for each material to access additional material information. You can also navigate from the quickview to the Material Fact Sheet as well as to the Manage Material Coverage app for that specific material by choosing Open....

In the Manage apps, you can use quickviews to access additional information about the following MRP elements:

  • Purchase order

  • Purchase requisition

  • Stock transport order

  • Stock transport requisition

  • Production order

  • Process order

  • Planned order for in-house production

  • Planned order for external procurement

In the stock/requirements list, these MRP elements are formatted as hyperlinks. When you choose a link, a quickview opens that contains additional information, such as the plant, vendor or customer data, information about schedule lines, or details about order or requisition items. If a change request exists for a purchase order or stock transport order, the requested date and quantity are displayed on the quickview.

In addition, you can navigate to fact sheets and to transactions in your back-end system to access further information. If a change request exists, you can navigate to the Manage Change Requests app to edit the change request.

Note

The linked fact sheets and app must be installed and configured in your system landscape.

If you immediately know how to solve a shortage, you can directly edit the date and quantity in the quickviews for the following MRP elements:

  • Purchase order

  • Purchase requisition

  • Stock transport order

  • Stock transport requisition

  • Planned order for in-house production

  • Planned order for external procurement

In addition, you can convert purchase requisitions to purchase orders, stock transport requisitions to stock transport orders, planned orders for in-house production to production orders or process orders, and planned orders for external procurement to purchase orders.

Note

When you convert a planned order for in-house production to a production order or process order, the scheduling type defined for the combination of order type, plant, and production scheduler must be backward scheduling.
