Purpose

To provide a list of common non-PP/DS issues for which OSS incidents are often mistakenly created in SCM-APO-PPS* component, which leads to delays in time to solution as the incident needs to be forwarded to another application area. 

Overview

The issues will be described, as well as what is the correct application area component. A separate section has been created to list SAP GUI issues, which are generally solved by implementing the lastest SAP GUI version/build/patch. The links under Correct Component column lead to wikis, SAP notes, or documentation that may help to solve the issue.
