Extended SAP APO Parallel BOP (P-VAR)


The backorder processing (BOP) variant split (P-VAR) is one of the options SAP provides for running BOP in parallel. It simplifies the creation of multiple variants complying with the constraints (RBA, PAL, delivery groups, etc). But standard P-VAR does not always create the same number of variants and this becomes a problem for managing the background jobs that need to be setup for running BOP in parallel.

Our P-VAR extension ensures that a fixed number of variants is created. With this enhancement the setup of background jobs is simplified since the fixed number of variants corresponds to the number of background jobs to be created and jobs do not need to change when variants are regenerated.
