A good idea for TPVS

In a recent project we added a new column to the transport planning transaction showing the percentage of the order that is already available as stock. It is a very simple enhancement and users like it a lot. The logic is very simple. We appended a new field to the display structure and used EXIT_/SAPAPO/SAPLVS_VSGUI_005 to fill the data. For each entry we get the pegged stock with function /SAPAPO/OM_ORDER_GET_DATA. This indicator is good because you can open the transport plan and identify the loadings that may become problematic. And you can optimize the transport plan allowing earlier delivery only for orders that already have 100% stock.

Yeah, a nice tip.

Also TPVS is really useful and informative when used in association with ATP.This can be done using the DRD. It can be called at the time of creation of a Sales Order or changing the same.

It really gives the visibility inside the process and capability to fulfill the order. Moreover CTP can be triggered in case of a shortfall of the stock.

Unfortunately dynamic route determination is new in SCM 5.0, so not yet available in my case. But something to try in the future for sure.
