SNP Heuristic run Planned order date at begining, middle or end of month bucket

Hi,

I have a requirement like, when SNP Location Heuristic run execute SNP planned orders are creating always end of the month. I need planned order to be created by heuristics at start of month or middle of month.

Example:

Planned independent Req - Date: 01.10.2014 - 2000 KG

                                                 06.10.2014 - 1500 KG

                                                 15.10.2014 - 5000 KG

                                                 20.10.2014 - 2800 KG

                                                 28.10.2014 - 3000 KG

SNP Planned order- Date:          31.10.2014 - 2000 KG

                                                31.10.2014 - 1500 KG

                                                31.10.2014 - 5000 KG

                                                31.10.2014 - 2800 KG

                                                31.10.2014 - 3000 KG

    Hi Lingaiah,

    you can use period factor which can be maintained on the lotsize tab in location product, transport lane or PPM.

    Hi Lingaiah,

    In product master,under Lotsize tab, maintain period type as 'M' and factor as '0.5', which will make planning run to create planned orders in the mid of every month.

    Read the documentation about period type and period factor.

    Thanks,

    Hi Lingaiah,

    The planned order creation inside a bucket is addressed through period factor.

    For the above issue, you can maintain the period factor in product master lot size tab between 0 to 1. Value 0 will be start of the month in your case, 0.5 is the middle of the month and 1 at the end of the month.
