Planning Version and Simulation Version

The concept of the plan version is not related with the concept of the simulation version. In some database tables the planning version is called with e.g. SIMID, dont let it cofuse you.

Simversion is meant to be a locking concept while planning in PPDS transactions.

Planning versions are a different data set from the 000 active version, created for testing (simulating) scenarios with different settings and data.
