Model assignment:

Model is the basis for all SCM planning functions. The overall supply chain model covers all areas of the chain from the supplier's supplier to the customer's customer, and is determined by importing the relevant data objects from source systems into SCM. It is modelled in the Supply Chain Engineer (/SAPAPO/SCC07), a component of the Supply Chain Cockpit. The supply chain model contains master data (such as: locations, products, resources production process models) and data relevant to transportation lanes.

So for planning reasons the model is a pre-condition when it comes to using LocationProduct for planning purposes. Most of the time the Model is the Active model 000.

Steps to assign a LocationProduct to a Model:
