A user has entered planning strategy group 10 (make-to-stock production) in the material master (SAP ECC) of a product. For the coming months, requirements with requirement type LSF (derived from the main strategy 10) have been planned. The user would like to change the requirement type from LSF to VSF planning with final assembly (in accordance with planning strategy 40) for requirements in the production plan that have already been saved. Which of the following statements are applicable in this case? (Choose two.)


Options are :

  • The user has to change the requirement type for planning strategy 10 to VSF planning with final assembly in Customizing. The requirement type for all existing requirements is then changed automatically.
  • The user can enter the new planning strategy group 40 in the material master of the product, but the requirement type is not changed automatically for existing requirements. (Correct)
  • The planning strategy group can be changed from 10 to 40 in the existing production plan, and the requirement type for all requirements is changed automatically.
  • The present requirement for the product can be changed manually from LSF to VSF in the Requirement Type field in the production plan, so that the new strategy 40 determines the next planning operation. (Correct)

Answer : The user can enter the new planning strategy group 40 in the material master of the product, but the requirement type is not changed automatically for existing requirements. The present requirement for the product can be changed manually from LSF to VSF in the Requirement Type field in the production plan, so that the new strategy 40 determines the next planning operation.

In SAP ECC, you want to map an in-house production process for general warehouse production. The fields in the area of the lot size-dependent in-house production time are to be populated when the material master for the final product is created. These fields can be maintained by updating from the scheduling result for the associated routing. You now think that there could be significant changes to the production times in the routing and decide against updating the material master. What problem could this lead to?


Options are :

  • Subsequent capacity planning is no longer possible due to the obsolete scheduling parameters.
  • Requirements planning runs up against an exception message in basic dates scheduling because the material master parameters do not match the scheduling result from the routing.
  • In the course of basic dates scheduling with requirements planning, dependent requirements request the components from the bill of materials at the wrong times. (Correct)
  • Lead time scheduling, which occurs by the time that a planned order is converted into a production order (at the latest), cannot take place on the basis of incorrect basic dates.

Answer : In the course of basic dates scheduling with requirements planning, dependent requirements request the components from the bill of materials at the wrong times.
