Delta CIF activation for the sales orders

HI,

I am running in the background all teh master data models between R3 and APO, and updating the stocks for the new items as well.

Should I run (generate and activate delta) periodically the sales order integration model?

Thanks a lot

You'll need to execute /CFM1 and /CFM2 whenever you have NEW RELEVANT MATERIALS for the SCM.

When you have this, you can generate a new version of the already active IM and activate it via /CFM2. This will transfer only the newly created materials.

After this, you'll need to run the same operations for your transaction data, since the existing /CFM1 selection and active IM do not include these materials.

My recommendation is that you schedule a daily or weekly job for the involved objects. This is the sequence SAP recommends you to run:

Suggestion for the Structure of the Master Data Integration Model

The following objects should each be grouped together in a separate integration model and activated in the sequence given:

1. ATP Customizing and product allocation Customizing

2. Plant (plant + distribution centers)

3. Classes and characteristics

4. Material masters

5. Networks

6. Maintenance orders

7. MRP areas + material masters for MRP areas

8. Planning product (this is a special case, see 'Transfer of Data Changes' for more information)

9. Availability check

10. Product allocation

11. Customer and vendor data (these may need to be separated. See below, Suggestion for the Structure of Transaction Data Integration Model, Stocks)

12. Work centers (this is a special case, see 'Transfer of Data Changes')

13. Production process model (this is a special case, see 'Transfer of Data Changes')

14. Delivery schedules, contracts, and purchasing info records (this is a special case, see 'Transfer of Data Changes')

Suggestion for the Structure of the Transaction Data Integration Model

The following objects should each be grouped together in a separate integration model and activated in the sequence given:

1. Stocks (if you hold special stocks at the customer or vendor, the relevant customer or vendor must be contained in the same integration model)

2. Sales orders (contains sales orders, deliveries, scheduling agreements, quotations, and customer independent requirements)

3. Purchase orders and purchase requisitions

4. Production/process orders + planned orders (these may need to be separated). These have to be activated before production campaigns

5. Manual reservations and planned independent requirements

6. Production campaigns + process/planned orders

7. Shipments

Create a new job in /SM36.

Steps should include, for each object:

a) RIMODGEN - IM creation

b) RIMODAC2 - IM activation

Since you'll be running this job periodically, it's nice to also add to your job report RIMODDEL, that delete the useless old inactive versions of the IMs from table CIF_IMOD.

I hope this answered your question!

Will
