Hello Sudhakar,

Message no. /SAPAPO/RRP433 -External procurement in planning segment not allowed

What is planning strategy are you using?

For planning without final assembly, external procurement is not allowed.

Please refer OSS note 519070 "Planning without Final Assembly"

Have you set Individual/coll indicator value to 1?

Best Regards,
