There are original and follow-up parts in a supersession chain. the system documents the versions using new item references. change and display supersession chains in a function for this purpose. The regional depots then send them to the dealer and the customer. You cannot use the discontinued parts function from MRP for the Supersession process. This is particularly important for the aftermarket environment where technical innovations produce a constant flow of new parts of a better quality or in a different form that supersede older parts. · Forecasting: you can use consumption-based forecasting to generate forecast requirements for the supersession chain. a relationship exists between part A and part B. backorder updating. In the system. If part A must be substituted by part B. in procurement (in purchase orders.6B is sufficient.!--a11y--> 1 Supersession Purpose Changes to the design. Enhancements in MRP enable you to execute a requirements planning run for supersession parts. thus making this application cross-component. the originally ordered part is replaced by the superseding part and is ordered from the manufacturer or vendor. in which parts replace each other. You can verify an invoice and post the goods receipt if the purchase order is changed subsequently. 3. An original part is replaced by a follow-up part. 2. For planning materials in several plants and for alternative products. Part B can be replaced by part C and part C by part D. The following graphic shows the relationship between the partners in the aftermarket environment: the Supersession application is particularly useful for distribution centers that receive orders for replacement parts from customers through the dealers. stock overview and forecasting) and in sales (in orders. This relationship is documented using a chain. You can use supersession to take into account supersession chains in all logistical functions. you could only use the product selection function in Sales and Distribution to replace parts. rescheduling and delivery). Integration The Supersession application is supported by the product selection function in Sales and Distribution. ERP with SAP for Automotive (as of Automotive system 2. You can determine prices for Supersession. purchase orders and inbound deliveries.0) with a basis of the R/3 System 4. such as. The parts are staged in the distribution centers and are sent to regional depots. so that it is possible to differentiate between the versions in stock. Up to now. All rights reserved. Page 3 of 23 . · Purchasing: 1. the rules-based ATP check from APO is quicker and its functions are better suited to the task. Implementation Considerations If you execute the availability check for one plant only. form and function of parts require vendors and manufacturers to replace obsolete parts with new versions of the same parts. quotations themselves. This constant process of exchange can now be mapped using the SAP System. PUBLIC © 2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. The master data is entered in a function that has been created solely for Supersession. A material replacement is possible in requests for quotations. in the procurement process and in the sales process. Features The following functions are available: · Master data: you can create. shipping notifications and goods receipts). in MRP (in the requirements calculation. Superseded and superseding relationships are a requirement. The distribution center then orders these parts from the manufacturer or the vendor and then finds out about possible material replacements. If the construction or manufacturing method of an article changes. The supersession chains consist of the expansion of the relationships with the individual objects (= item reference).

You can create chains yourself or load replacement information from a data carrier into the system. In the case of the replacement type Forward. If this is not the case. When a new part becomes valid. You can execute rescheduling for supersession chains. the system generates a warning message in the material master and an error message during the maintenance. By choosing Material Interchangeability and Change -> Display . If this is the case. Activities To maintain the supersession chains. B cannot. There are two replacement types: 1. · Sales and Distribution: 1. It is therefore a single valid from date and not a period in which a part is valid. !--a11y--> 1. You define the causes in Customizing. 3. You can calculate planned independent requirements for supersession parts. If the chain is modified. 2.

You can execute the ATP check for supersession chains both in the ERP System and in APO (rules-based). · Stock overview: enhancements to the stock overview enable you to display the stock situation for all members of the supersession chain. 4. be replaced by A if B has been ordered. The replacement type describes the possible replacements. The system also checks in the material master and in the maintenance of the supersession chain whether certain fields are the same for all the parts in the chain. In the case of the replacement type Interchangeable. All rights reserved. you access the screen Display Parts Interchangeability. You have defined causes in Customizing: Logistics – General ® Interchangeability of Parts ® Maintain Interchangeability Codes.1. It can replace an old part from this point in time onwards. the system determines this again. however. The system then converts the data into a chain automatically. Prerequisites You have entered parts for the creation of a supersession chain into the material master or loaded the data from your vendor into the system. That means that B can replace A if A has been ordered. you use the F4 help to choose a possible cause for the replacement of a part. the system generates a warning message in the master data and an error message during the maintenance. B can also be replaced by A if B has been ordered. · CIF: there are enhancements to the integration model for the transfer of supersession data from the SAP Automotive System to APO. The valid from date is the date from which the part is valid for the supersession chain. !--a11y--> 1. Every part in a supersession chain is identified using the following master data: The sequence number describes the position of a part within the supersession chain.1 Maintenance of Supersession Chains Use You can use this function to create and change supersession chains. The checks take place primarily for the material field and for fields in the MRP environment. There is an improved stock overview displaying the stocks of all parts in the supersession chain. In the field for the cause of part exchange. (See Technical Appendix). There can be many active supersession parts in a manufacturers’ system. 2. Page 4 of 23 . the materials are fully interchangeable. Integration A function module loads the replacement data from an external system into the SAP System in order to simplify the maintenance of the numerous replacement parts. Features The system gives each of the supersession chains that you create a group number (supersession chain number). This number is simply a selection criterion and has no other use in the system. Enhancement of stock/requirements list: you can access a period overview for a supersession part and a complete view for the other parts in the chain. this does not automatically mean that the old part is no longer valid. That means that B can replace A if A has been ordered. the replacement can only be one-way: A ® B.

Procedure Starting from the SAP overview tree.2. Large distribution centers have several warehouses in different locations and the joint stock can cover customer requirements. Page 5 of 23 . Result You can make changes to the chain at any time and extend it. The aim of the rescheduling is to redistribute the available quantity of one or more products over a number of selected orders. which was ordered originally. the system takes into account the interchangeability in supersession chains for sales orders. you have maintained parts for a supersession chain. however.You use this function to maintain and create supersession chains. the complete supersession chain for the part entered appears in the group box below. It is possible. If there is no connection to APO. In the selection data window. You can use the availability check in APO to define such rules. Prerequisites You have maintained the supersession chains (Maintaining Supersession Chains). If no chain exists. Enter a valid from date. enter a part that appears in a supersession chain or for which you want to create a supersession chain. The process of covering customer requirements with stock from different locations is also known as Multi Warehouse Allocation (MWA). As a result. If the master data for the materials. The Maintain Parts Interchangeability screen appears. The production selection and availability check functions recognize that this material belongs to a supersession chain and check the availability of all materials in the chain. which you want to use to create a chain. the system issues a group number (supersession chain number). In the view Basic data 1 of the master data. As soon as you create a chain. the customer orders a particular part from the manufacturer and assumes that precisely this part will be delivered. it may be necessary to search for available quantities of the ordered part in several locations. During the availability check. the system lists the possible replacements and the distributed order quantities in the sales order. If the chain already exists. you can replace it with an interchangeable part from the supersession chain. the system determines the next part that can replace it. The system issues a sequence number automatically. that the manufacturer has already replaced this part with a part of better quality without the dealer or customer knowing. By choosing Environment ® Change material . If a part is not available. the system generates an error message. It is possible that the customer receives part B instead of part A.

The check mode is taken from the product master and the business event from the ERP System. E = 250 Assume that a sales order is entered for part C and the order quantity is 500 pieces. To do this. across which the order quantity is distributed. The product selection and availability check are run as background jobs and one or more interchangeable parts.In the view MRP 3 in the material masters for the supersession parts. It is also possible to reschedule supersession materials in the ERP system. Page 6 of 23 . B = 200. which the system executes. If the ATP check determines open quantities. extends automatically for the supersession chains in a sales order to the part that can replace the originally intended part.2 Rules-Based ATP Check in APO Purpose The availability check is used to check the available stock of supersession parts. 2. Prerequisites You have set up the product substitution procedure SAPSUS0001 in APO. The sequence depends on the distance between the warehouse and the dealer. · Procurement from prioritized warehouses:the system searches using a defined hierarchy of warehouses. The part exchange in the sales order is supported by the product selection that searches in the chain for a part that can replace the part ordered. !--a11y--> 1. You have used the CIF interface to transfer the supersession data into the APO System. These items refer to the original item. All rights reserved.Core Interface.2. Process Flow The creation of a sales order triggers the rules-based availability check in APO. then PL2 and then PL3 MWA logic: Check A ® B « C « D in PL1. After the product selection and the availability check. the system then adds a new sub-item. You can find further information on this in the SAP Library for the APO System under APO Integration Scenario ® Global ATP Check. D = 200. The part ordered can be confirmed by parts from alternative locations (“Multi Warehouse Allocation . Three sales strategies are taken into account by the ATP check. The part ordered in the sales order in the supersession scenario can be confirmed by a superseding part. appear in the sub-items. See also: APO . C = 150. If there is a connection to APO. then if necessary check A ® B « C « D in PL2. or distributor. The system searches for an available quantity of the ordered part in the nearest warehouse first. The system sets the original item with a special item category and adds new sub-items for the superseded parts. The original item and the sub-item contain the same part and the same quantity.

SAP recommends that you make the settings in Customizing. the system uses a valid part in the chain according to the settings in the product master. then if necessary check for C in PL1.3 Forecasting for Supersession Parts Use You can use the consumption-based forecast to calculate the future requirement for a part.3 Rescheduling in APO Use Cancellations and changes to sales orders. The rescheduling has to interpret the replacement again and. PL2. according to the settings. then if necessary check for C in PL2. use either the last part or first part in the chain for open requirements. PL3 Result The system confirms available quantities of supersession parts. taking into account the rules that have been set for supersession in APO. then if necessary check for B in PL2. The procedure uses various mathematical models that evaluate the historical values. an extension of the supersession chain or an unexpected goods receipt for an old part require rescheduling. For open quantities (that means. Features Rescheduling takes into account the supersession chains and the MWA logic if the chains have changed and the sales orders have to be confirmed again. Prerequisites You have maintained a CIF integration model for the transfer of supersession data from the ERP System to the APO System. then if necessary check for D in PL2.

The rescheduling must take into account the MPA logic and confirm a different part to the original one. then if necessary check for B in PL1. then if necessary check for A in PL1. the system interprets requirements and receipts again. so that the first part is always used for open requirements. A supplier may.

if necessary. The planning always starts with the first part. The forecast in forecast-based planning cumulates the consumption values and generates a requirement of 75 pieces for part D. Page 8 of 23 . Order proposals can be created for the respective valid part at the same time. The planning result is then transferred to the PUBLIC © 2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. Possible shortages and excesses are transferred to the next part in the chain step-by-step. Activities Execute the forecast run in the master data or in the following application: Logistics ® Material Management ® Material Requirements Planning (MRP) ® Materials Forecast. requests replenishment elements. In addition. For parts A. Reorder point planning: In automatic reorder point planning. Features You can use consumption-based forecasting to generate forecast requirements for the supersession chains. SAP recommends that you execute rescheduling in Sales and Distribution before the MRP run. Prerequisites You have maintained the supersession chain. the system determines the reorder point and the safety stock using the forecast. the system takes into account all the parts in order to determine the reorder point of the current part. Forecast-based planning: In contrast to reorder point planning. They flow into the planning as forecast requirements. Integration See also Carrying Out the Forecast Prerequisites You have maintained the forecast parameters in the view Forecasting in the material master. In the view Consumption (which can be accessed using the button Consumption values ) in the material master. you can use the Supersession totals on / off button to switch between the cumulative consumption values for all parts in the chain and the consumption values for the currently valid part. The total period of examination is one year. The system always generates forecast requirements for the currently valid part in the supersession chain. which contains the materials that you want to plan. B and C. See also: Consumption-Based Planning You cannot use time-phased materials planning for supersession parts. The system then uses these values to calculate the reorder point and safety stock and transfers these to the respective material master record. !--a11y--> 1. The forecast requirements generated are based on the consumption values for all parts in the chain that are cumulated for the currently valid parts. All rights reserved. balances requirements and receipt elements and. the system displays the forecast requirements for the currently valid part cumulatively. the system cumulates the historical consumption values of all parts in the chain. Before you execute the MRP run. you have executed forecasting in Sales and Distribution after maintaining the supersession chain or the MRP set. When executing the forecast for a supersession chain. The following supersession chain has been entered: A ® B ® C ® D. Every part is planned using the planning situation that is valid for it.4 Supersession Chains in MRP Purpose Material Requirements Planning (MRP) ensures the availability of materials. The program generates the forecast values for the future requirement using the material consumption values to date. Receipts and requirements can exist for all parts in the supersession chain. In the case of a supersession chain. the system generates consumption values of 25 pieces in a validity period of 3 months for each part. independent of the validity date and the replacement type. The system always plans all parts in the chain. the forecast values from forecast-based planning form the basis for the requirements quantities in the next planning run. Process Flow The following enhancements in MRP are available for part interchangeabilities: Classic MRP planning for a supersession part always runs to the end of its supersession planning horizon. This button exists for the currently valid part only. Enhancements in MRP support the planning of supersession parts.The system takes into account the consumption values for all parts in the supersession chain when executing the forecast for a part in the supersession chain.

if necessary. As soon as you have maintained the MRP views in the master data for the materials. In the case of supersession chains. be transferred to the superseding parts. however.next part in the chain where the system then plans to the end of the supersession planning horizon again. is planned using the planning situation that is valid for it. The system generates the rescheduling check and the planning for each individual part. See also: Planning Run Types and Scope of Planning Use The validity dates of the individual parts in the supersession chain define the supersession planning horizon and affect the planning run.2 Supersession Planning Horizon (SPH) Definition The supersession planning horizon is a planning period that is defined solely for Supersession. In the modified MRP run. the system again views the planning situation together with the situation for the following part in the chain and groups together the requirements. See also: Planning Run Types and Scope of Planning !--a11y--> 1. It always takes into account the standard planning horizon in MRP.4. the planning date. the system groups the planning situation together with the planning situation of the following part. See: Supersession Planning Horizon (SPH) Planning file entries are always set for the first part in the chain. the system plans all parts in the chain starting with the first part. these are automatically transferred to the first part and an entry NETCH for net change planning and/or an entry NETPL for net change planning in the planning horizon is then made. they are flagged for the various types of planning run. that means. In the case of fully interchangeable parts. Result The MRP list for a supersession part contains the planning result after this material has been planned. Each part. Page 9 of 23 . belongs to a chain and automatically sets the planning file entry for the first part in the chain. In the case of one-way interchangeable materials. Features The system plans all materials in a supersession chain and then creates entries for them in the planning file. See also: Checking the Planning File Prerequisites You have built a planning file and it contains all MRP-relevant materials. That means. they appear in the planning file. It is defined as the period from today. The system executes the standard MRP run within the supersession planning horizon and a modified MRP run outside of the planning horizon. whereby there is no excess coverage situation (that means. so that the planning situation can. PUBLIC © 2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. there is the same quantity of requirements as receipts). Enhancements to the lists for the evaluation of the planning results: stock/requirements list and MRP list. even if the supersession planning horizon is greater. the settings are only maintained for the first part in the chain. even if you have made MRP-relevant changes for another material. because the planning always starts with the first part and the planning situations are then transferred to the following parts. See also: Evaluation: MRP List and Stock/Requirements List !--a11y--> 1.1 Supersession Chains in the Planning File Use All MRP-relevant materials are included in the planning file. The system recognizes if a part. the planning situation must first be balanced before it can be settled together with the situation for the following part. A new field in the material master that defines a material as part of a supersession chain enables the MRP run to recognize that it must transfer any planning file entries to the first part in the chain. the system deletes non-firm planned receipts and no longer creates new planned receipts. to the time of the replacement. to the date on which the next superceding part in the supersession chain becomes valid. All rights reserved. for which a requirement or receipt exists. there are more planned receipts than requirements).4. even for superseding parts. In the case of one-way interchangeable parts. The receipts for A are reduced until the excess coverage situation has been cleared completely. The available quantity of receipts are reduced and are no longer available for the following part. The system deletes non-firmed receipts for the superseded part after the end of the supersession planning horizon. that means. However. whereby there is an excess coverage situation (that means.

All receipts that fall in the modified planning run are deleted and no new ones are created.1 Example 1: Complete Stock Coverage Let us assume: A and B are fully or only one-way interchangeable The initial situation is as follows: There are requirements for A inside and outside of the supersession planning horizon. the planning result is the same for both possible replacement types. After the planning run for B: The planning situation for A is transferred to the following part in the chain. B and C each have a supersession planning horizon of four months. Example Let us assume that the planning horizon defined in Customizing is one year and part A is replaced by part B after six months. The system plans part A as though the modified planning horizon is the planning horizon entered. a differentiation is made between the cases where parts are fully or one-way interchangeable. Parts A.3. Features Example 1: Complete Stock Coverage Example 2: Excess Stock Example 3: Stock Shortage Example 4: Late Requirements Coverage Example 5: Consumption with Planned Independent Requirements !--a11y--> 1. In this case. A and B can be planned completely but C can only be planned for one month. Any non-firm. After the planning run for A: There is a receipt for the requirement of A in its validity period. These receipts are recreated if the requirements are transferred to the next part in the chain.4. !--a11y--> 1.4. !--a11y--> 1. Page 10 of 23 . planned receipts are deleted. that means.3.4. In the examples. There are receipts for the requirements of A and B. The system takes into account the total planning horizon when planning each part.3 Example Scenarios Use The various scenarios that are possible in MRP for supersession parts are explained using some examples. The supersession planning horizon (MPH) for part A is therefore six months.2 Example 2: Excess Stock PUBLIC © 2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company. The requirement of A in the validity period for B cannot be covered by A and flows into the planning of B as an uncovered requirement from the superseded part. there is a requirement for B.Integration The system implements the MRP enhanced for Supersession when the supersession planning horizon has been exceeded. The total planning horizon for MRP is only nine months. All rights reserved. In addition.

that means. At the same time.Let us assume: A and B are fully interchangeable The initial situation is as follows: The receipts for A are greater than the requirements. In addition. After the planning run for A: The following exception messages occur: 59 = Receipt after effective-out date 25 (not so critical) = Excess Stock Some receipt elements for A cover the requirement in the validity period for B. there is a receipt and a requirement of A in the validity period for B. Let us assume: B can replace A. Non-firmed receipts for A in the validity period for B are deleted. The receipts for B cover the requirements of B completely. After the planning run for A: The following exception messages occur: 59 = Receipt after effective-out date 25 = Excess stock 20 = Cancel process As part B cannot be replaced by part A. The surplus receipt elements for A can be used completely for the requirements of B. A cannot replace B The initial situation is as follows: The receipts for A are greater than the requirements. There is excess stock. The reduced and deleted receipts for A are no longer taken into account during the planning of B. Some of the receipts for A can still cover the requirement of A in the validity period for B. All rights reserved. After the planning run for B: The planning situation for A is transferred to B. The firmed receipt for A in the validity period for B is also ignored. PUBLIC © 2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company.

The firm receipt of A in the period for B remains. the surplus stock from A is reduced or ignored in the planning of B. After the planning run for B: The planning situation for A is transferred to B.

!--a11y--> Example 4: Late Requirements Coverage ("Late Fulfillment") PUBLIC © 2014 SAP SE or an SAP affiliate company.3. A receipt for B covers the requirement for B completely. There is thus a shortage situation. After the planning run for B: The system no longer takes into account the reduced requirement during the planning for B. There is a shortage situation.

After the planning run for A: The system has generated the following exception messages during the planning run: 59 = Receipt after effective-out date 56 = Shortage in planning time fence The system generates a rescheduling proposal for the firmed receipt in the validity period for B. Let us assume: A is replaced by B. surplus receipt elements are reduced. however.!--a11y--> 1. In this case. There is now an excess stock situation. the system recognizes an excess stock situation due to the transferred receipt for A. Page 12 of 23 . After the planning run for A: The following exception messages occur: 59 = Receipt after effective-out date 56 = Shortage in planning time fence The system generates a rescheduling proposal for the firmed receipt in the validity period for B. After the planning run for B: During the planning run for B. but B is not replaced by A The initial situation is as follows: There is a requirement of A that cannot be covered in the validity period for A.
