In SAP APO, for generating procurement proposals for meeting the production requires Production Planning/Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) is used. To define order details and resource plan this component is used. By giving lead time to critical products, the delivery performance is improved.
Other components of SAP APO can be integrated with PP/DS. Like for demand plan creation, integrating with demand planning.
The OLAP system data which are transaction and master data is moved to APO. After order processing planning, then results are moved to APO system.

The two plans SNP and PP/DS are integrated at different phases of cycle - medium-term objectives uses SNP and PP/DS uses short-term planning. Similarity between them is the horizon which is same and the planning area doesn't overlap.
Benefit of using same planning version is that the SNP orders can be converted into PP/DS orders.
The alerts raised in PP/DS planning can be monitored using the Alert monitor. For that, we have to create a alert profile applicatble to your planning. In PP/DS, multiple alert types are created.
