Running SNP in background
Can SNP Hueristic be scheduled/setup to run in background on a certain frequency, say weekly or monthly basis, say ?
If so, how do I restrict SNP to be run based on MRP type as selection ID's doesn't offer the capability to filter by MRP type ? Our APO system has Materials both with MRP type PD and X0 and we want SNP to pick up only materials with X0 and not PD. How can this be accomplsihed ?
creating a variant is pretty simple and it is almost same as Selection Ids.When you enter into the Tcode, after making all the relevant selections click save button on top of your screen..it takes you to the variant screen..there enter variant name and description and again click save.Now the variant is created with your selections.Now in SM36 create a job with step. While creating a step enter the programname and the variant name you have created.
In the Start condition option select Date/Time option and there enter date and time and at the bottom check "Periodic job" box and click Period values tab and select weekly and save. this will schedule your job on weekly basis from the date you specified.
Every Tcode is based on a Program..when you enter into TCode..at the bottom of your screen you see your client name..besides that you see a small note kind of icon..when you click on that a message box pops up at the bottom..there you can see your current Tcode and the associated program.
