Advanced ATP – Product allocation with S/4HANA

With the flexible, user-friendly product allocation in S/4HANA, you can divide quantities according to your requirements

In order to reliably keep customer agreements, to smooth production or to avoid bottleneck situations, there is often the requirement to distribute materials to customers, customer groups or according to other criteria according to preliminary planning.

Does this requirement also exist in your company? Is the product allocation request still mapped in your company using storage locations or the former SD product allocation based on the Logistics Information System (LIS)? Do you need a more flexible user interface for entering and changing planning figures? Or would you as a user like to adjust the criteria of the product allocation yourself without always having to rely on IT? Then you should definitely take a look at the new product allocation solution that comes with S/4HANA as part of the Advanced ATP (aATP).
The allocation solution familiar from SAP ERP is still available under S/4HANA. 

However, its use is associated with a high implementation and modification effort as well as low user-friendliness in the maintenance of planning figures. Many companies shy away from this effort or no longer want to rely on outdated LIS technology from the early days of SAP R/3.
With Advanced ATP, you now have a flexible and user-friendly solution based on SAP Fiori to realize the quota allocation request according to freely definable rules. Functionally, the new aATP solution is similar to the old one, but it convinces with a much lower implementation and change effort as well as much greater flexibility and user-friendliness in the maintenance of planning figures.
