Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Product Protfolio workcenter and  Materials view.

2. Open any material and click on View All

3. Enter Adaptation mode

4. Right Click on a field from the General Tab, then click on "+Extension Field"

5. Create a new field, or select an existing one, then click on "Further Usage"

6. Navigate to the Extension Scenarios tab

Here you can see the following scenario related to production:

- Material - General Information to Production Proposal - Output Item

- Production Proposal - Output Item Information to Production Request - Output Item Information

- Production Proposal - Production Proposal Output to Production Request Planning Details - Requested Material Output

- Production Request Planning Details - Requested Material Output to Production Requests - Material Output


However, there is no extension scenario for the Production Order object


There is Extension scenario from Material to Production Proposal-Output Items but there is none which goes forward to Production Request/Production Order.



Currently the scenario to Production Request/Production Order is not available in the system.

This would need to be registered as a new requirement in our Influence Portal ( ),

so other users can upvote it and it may be considered for future system releases based on demand and technical feasibility.
