Managing MSCD and MSCX Tablespaces for APS Implementations - (Data Collections Sizing) (Doc ID 220115.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 11.5.8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In response to requests for more information about this area of the Value Chain Planning (aka Advanced Planning and Scheduling - APS) implementation, this note was developed to help Support and Customers better understand their implementation, space requirements, and how space is consumed in the APS tablespaces.

This will explain how data for MSC tables will grow very quickly and help them to plan disc space needs and configure the tables and tablespaces for their implementation.

This note should also be helpful for customers who are not implementing the full VCP applications, and need assistance in allocating space for Data Collections for Order Management Available to Promise (OM ATP).

We have a new process (Mar-2011) available for determining the sizing that should be used for a new system. Review <Note 1301231.1> How to Get System Sizing Help for Value Chain Planning (VCP) Applications. This process takes some time to complete and should be done before the system install, but this could be helpful in determining if the system is sized correctly and help make adjustments if required

It is NOT designed to handle Data Collections sizing when VCP Applications are not being used and only ATP Data Collections from Order Management is the objective of the installation.

This tool is available for Oracle Sales and Consulting to use with customers during their initial phases of the implementation.

Oracle Support does NOT use this tool and cannot assist customer in the use of this tool. Customers should contact their Oracle Sales Representative or Oracle Consulting for further information and assistance.
