The purpose of this page is to provide useful information on managing PDS in the SAP Master Data


PDS is described as Structure that contains the master data for planning in SAP APO. Production data structures are differentiated by the following:
Generated from iPPE data (product structure, process structure, factory layout)
Generated from R/3 data (classic master data such as BOM, routing, and recipe)
In both cases, the production version provides the basis for generating the production data structure.
The production data structure is used as a source of supply in APO.

The main transaction for viewing PDS is /N/SAPAPO/CURTO_SIMU
