 MRP Live: New and Enhanced Features


The following new and enhanced features are available for MRP Live:

  • The creation of schedule lines is now supported in the MRP Live on HANA run. Note that only scheduling agreements with the document type release documentation are included in the MRP Live on HANA run. If you currently work with scheduling agreements without release documentation, you should close these and create new ones with release documentation.

  • The report Include Material in Classic MRP/In Apps for MRPhas been renamed to Information and Settings for Materials in MRP on HANA. The technical name PPH_MRP_SET_PLAN_IN_ABAP of the report has not been changed nor has the transaction name md_mrp_force_classic.

    You can use this report for the following reasons:

    • If you want to plan as many materials as possible in the MRP Live on HANA run. In this case, you have information on the restriction that prevents a material from being included in the MRP Live on HANA run.

    • If you always want the system to call classic MRP instead of MRP Live on HANA to plan certain materials in certain plants. This means, for example, that you can further improve the performance of the planning run by setting materials that you know cannot be planned in the MRP Live on HANA run (due to a particular restriction) to be planned in classic MRP.

    • If you want to determine whether a material is to be displayed in the apps for Material Requirements Planning. This information is automatically checked the first time you access the apps and is saved in this report. For more information, see the detailed report documentation.

  • The report MRP Live Performance Log (PPH_MRP_PERF) is available. This report provides you with performance information for your MRP Live runs. For example, you can see how many materials were planned altogether, how many were planned in SAP HANA and how many were planned in classic MRP including information on how long the planning run took. In the details screen, the system lists detailed performance information per low-level code. For more information, see the detailed report documentation.
