Before the consolidation location feature was introduced it was still possible to consolidate the item in a single location by using RBA with the activity setting to create a STR instead of replacing the location. What are the advantages of moving from the old setup to the new consolidation location?

Where do we define the location as consolidation location? Does the capability works with multi level ATP? I have a scenario where order will need to confirm to local DC but that order needs to perform supply availability at a factory and then move the FGI to local DC which will then ship to customer (may need some processing at DC so would need to factor in some time). I think and sound like that consolidation feature is what i need.

Hi Sunil, yes the consolidation location is a feature of RBA. You define the consolidation location in the main screen of the rule. It sounds like the correct option for your scenario.

Thanks a lot !! Is there some documentation or std sap help on how to setup/enable this scenario, quick few steps so that i can get my mind around how to approach for proto-typing this scenario?

I don't know any best practice document for this but I think the std documentation is quite good. You can check it here http://bit.ly/T5Rhry

As a starting point, the information I collected while analyzing this topic.

The consolidation location feature makes the configuration simpler and more explicit in the rule maintenance. There is a new field to set which location will consolidate the order, and previously the consolidation location was defined implicitly by the setup of the substitution rules. With consolidation location there is a two step scheduling (source location->consolidation location->customer). This allows modeling scheduling times with more detail. The ATP results screen also presents the information in a better way for this scenario.
