CCR, CPP and Queues
Can someone clearly articulate (the layman style) the relationship and logic amongst these closely related programs in SCM system. Like in my case we do this mechanically as the problems arises, but without a comprehensive understanding and an appreciation for the same.
CCR > Compare/Reconcile transaction data
CPP> CIF post processing.

Mostly you don't get stuck queues when you activate post processing. This at least avoids good queues being blocked behind bad ones.
Experience shows that sometimes the faulty queues do not get registered in CPP.
However you must run CCR daily to match the data between SCM and R/3 as the differences can have serious business implications for the client. For example the Purchase requision or planned order not getting CIFed to R/3 would mean uncovered shortages which may be noticed late and may result in lost sales, reputation, contractual liabilities for the client's business. Or a sale order not going to APO can cause the material not getting planned and therefore same consequences.
Therefore the reconciliation must be done every day or even more frequently if the resources permit.
