Free attribute field & ECC MRP Group


What is the significance of Free attribute field in a structure and where and how they are used ? Will there be any free attributes in Tables as well ? If not, can one be defined ?

We have been intimated by functional team that we need to determine a certain Free Attribute field that would determine if Forecast, Total Demand Aggregation will occur and that this Field will be populated by the ECC MRP Group.

I am trying to know the process of what is Forecast and Total Demand aggregation and how to determinie if Forecast, Total Demand Aggregation will occur or not along with its relevance to R/3 MRP group.

Also, is there a way that free attribute fields be displayed in the SAP screens ?

Would appreciate if anyone cane share their experiences, information in this regard

you can activate free attribue field in APO for Product , Location , Product location by

These are activated in them IMG:

APO->Master Data->Maintain Freely Definable Attributes.

You can populate this free attribue field by different CIF user exit in R/3 and APO as per business requirement.

Check SMOD and look for CIF user exit.

R/3 : CIF*
