🎯 SAP S/4 Hana 2023: New Fiori APP’s in Manufacturing

The below are the list of New apps that have been released in SAP S/4 Hana 2023 in the Manufacturing LOB

Historical Buffer Performance  –

is a new app using which you can view the historical data for your buffer stock related to the time-dependent buffer level charts within a specified time period (for example, last month). The visualization and analytical capabilities helps the production planner to gain an insight into the historical buffer performance for a material.

Manage Material Coverage(F0251A)

With this app, you can display and analyze coverage issues that exist for selected materials. For each material that you select, you can display a stock / requirements list including material shortage information, which helps you determine shortages that can cause disruptions to production or to the fulfillment of customer demands. You can also take actions directly from the app, for example, start an MRP run or edit MRP elements to resolve coverage issues

Evaluate Capacity is a new app using which you can better visualize capacity situation of work centers within a plant. You can group work centers based on work center group and visualize the utilization on the group level. The visualization and analytical capabilities helps in understanding and managing the impact of capacity situation.

My Area of Responsibility – Work Center Person Responsible

With this new app, you can define your area of responsibility by selecting the respective combinations of plant and work center person responsible. In the Mass maintenance of work center capacities app, only those work center capacities are displayed in the worklist that fulfill your selection criteria.

Advance Variant Configuration(AVC) & VCH_HL_AFL_CHECK

⚡Advance Variant Configuration(AVC) &VCH_HL_AFL_CHECK⚡

🎯  As we know the AVC has to be installed after the S4 Hana has been installed. This can be part of your upgrade or even for new installation

🎯 It is always important to evaluate if all the Technical Pre-Requisites are completed correctly

🎯 This is completely as Technical task for validation but still it is good for the Functional consultants also to be aware of this Pre-Requisites.

🎯 SAP has provided a standard report -VCH_HL_AFL_CHECK which will help you to execute and confirm the same.

🎯 There are parameters which are more technical but the important part is you should be getting a  message -“Procedure Called Successfully” in Green Highlighted color. This confirms that the technical pre-requisites are installed correctly.

Material and Class Linkage Details-1

In case if you are looking for solution of extracting the assignment of the Class data in SAP Using Standard Transaction, then below will be helpufl

Option 1:  Use the Standard Code  – CL6B – Object List 

This gives you List of Classes and the objects ( materials) assigned to it

Option 2:  Use the Standard Code  – CL6BN – Object List 

This gives you List of Classes and the objects ( materials) assigned to it in ALV Format.



The only challenge is in case if you need analzyse, the output when we save in exce l is not user friendly as it comes in a nested structure.

To avoid this we should try to extract the data from the SAP tables, will post as a separate thread.

Batch Management – Standard Characteristics Creation.

This blog details the process to update/ create the standard batch characteristics in the SAP – system.Whenever a new client is built you will not be finding the SAP – Standard characteritics. This concerns all characteristics starting with LOBM_*.


  • LOBM_VFDAT  expiration date, shelf life
  • LOBM_VERAB  availability date

To activate this we need to perform the below customization in the system.

This particular acvitity is to be peformed during the below cases:

  • In newly created clients, after copying other clients
  • After defining object dependencies for standard characteristic LOBM_RLZ
  • In every client after a release upgrade

The configuration Path is as below :Logistics – General> Batch Managment > Batch valuation > Update Standard Characteristics.  Once you run this configuration node , the standard cstics will be created and also the requried Object dependencies will also be creatd ( Copied from the client 000). This should be part of all new client preparation check list, cutover check list also.

SAP-PP/DS Live Cache Check

When working in the SAP – PP/DS or during the intial set up of the PPDS in the s4 hana system we need to check the consistency of the SAP Live cache set up.

For this we need to use the t.code  /SAPAPO/OM17 and once you go to the t.code do select the Product  / Location combination

When you run in foreground then you will get the message ” The Selected Data is Consistent” if not then it will take to next screen to detail the message of inconsistency and then you have options to clear the inconsistency also.

Conversion factor of single-unit batch.Message no. MILL101

In case if you are facing the below error , espcially in case if you are using the IS-Mill functionality or the single unit batch concept.

factor of single-unit batch Message no. MILL101.

This message is received if there is any inconsistency in the Batch specific unit of measure that has been adopted in the batch classification, Especially when you make return delivery or other cancellations if the Batch specific uom characteristics is not empty then this error will occur.

Sales order Creation with Variant Configuration

The creation of sales order with variant configuration characteristics will be a little tricky one.
we have to use the below  Function module(FM) –
one of the advantage of using this FM is that this will support all document types like Sales order, Scheduling agreements, Customer independent Requirements.

In the following section we will see the usage of this FM to create a simple Customer Independent requirement (MD81) with the variant configuration values passed on to the same.The below are the fM structure you need to work with








 MATERIAL Dyanamic
 PLANT Dyanamic
 TARGET_QTY Dyanamic

Note: In this structure the “common mistake” most of them do is not filling in the po_itm_no- if this is not filled then the SO will not be created with the characteristics values

Here you can filter with the migration object and you can also filter based on the Object type- if it is master data or the transaction data. The important attention is to be given to the available migration approach if it can be done through the File/Staging table or direct transfer. Also note DMC is widely used on ERP / EWM / AFS so kindly make sure you are checking the releavant application here. Filter can also be applied on the components.

With this information provided now you will be able to identify the migratoin object with approach. This should help you to plan your data migration approach of the Project.
