 The
SAP APO Core Interface (CIF) is part of the SAP R/3 Plug-In. It allows the exchange
of data between SAP APO and SAP R/3
 Only
the data objects needed in SAP APO 's must be transferred from SAP R/3's data set
 Once
the CIF is set up, the data elements can be sent from SAP R/3 to SAP APO either
periodically by batch, or in real time. Data can also be sent periodically or on demand
from SAP APO to SAP R/3
 Whereas
the interface is a standard integration between these two SAP solutions, there
are often errors which can block this interface
 You will find in this document insights on how to use the main transactions to
analyze and solve these errors and many examples of errors and way to solve them

Transaction Code: /SAPAPO/CQ - SCM Queue Manager
Menu Path: SAP Menu  Tools APO Administration  Integration  Monitor 
/SAPAPO/CQ- SCM Queue Manager
This transaction in SAP APO enables you to check the local system as well as all connected
systems. The output queues are sorted per publishing type (for example, in-house production,
planned independent requirement, planning file entry, and so on).
With the SCM Queue Manager you can check outbound queues in your own or in a connected
system and analyze and correct errors if necessary. The advantage compared to the qRFC
Monitor is that the SCM Manager is more user friendly (see RFC Inbound&outbound queues
chapter for more detail)
