SNP Heuristics scheduling logicto create PRs


Hi All,

I am trying to understand how the scheduling works in SNP heuristics.

We have a business scenario as below:

Lot size – weekly

Receiving calendar – Open on every Thursday of the week (receiving day closed in week of Nov 18 due to holidays)

Forecast is there in each week.

Week Nov 11 – 50 units

Week Nov 18 – 50 units

Week Nov 25 - 50 units

With this set up, if we run heuristics then system creates PR as:

Week Nov 11 – 50 units

Week Nov 18 – NO Receipts

Week Nov 25 - 100 units

So system generates the receipt in next week for Nov 18 week’s demand.

Business is expecting to see the PR in previous week (Nov 11) to cover the demand of week 18

Please suggest if current heuristics behavior is standard or any workaround to meet business requirement.
