SOP planning periods

We are planning products in SOP where the planning period is a generated period (weeks and months). Planning will be done first in period weeks and then in months i.e., the requirements will be entered for first 4 periods as weeks and then for next 2 periods as months.



Period Requirements

Week 1 100

Week 2 250

Week 3 300

Week 4 400

Month 1 1500

Month 2 2000

Now we redesigned our planning period pattern as days, weeks and months.

i.e., Week 1 and Week 2 as days then weeks and months as above.


Day 1

Day 2




Day 15

Week 1

Week 2

Month 1

Month 2

In Set parameters for info structures and key figures if we define the planning periodicity as T (Day), W (Week), M (Month) and generate the period, the system is giving an information message

No technical period generated for period unit 'day'

Message no. MA866

And the period is automatically changed to day.

Period unit 'day' is used as planning period unit

Message no. MA859

There is NO PERIOD GENERATION in the info structure?

Is it possible to generate the period pattern as Days, weeks and months ? How ?
