consider Order Priority with DS Heuristics


Hello SAP gurus,

This is PPDS heuristics question (/sapapo/cdpsb0)...

Currently I am facing issue trying to let a heuristics consider order priority field (populated with PP run - inherited into planned orders) at PP or DS heuristics run. I tried changing Sorts Procedure with a heuristics copied from SAP_PP_002, but it did not work as desired. I tries using a copy of SAP_DS_02 with sort section maintained with priority 0 thru 255, but it only seems to consider/not-consider orders marked with priorities, and it does not actually prioritize planned orders while scheduling.

Example of what is desired is as follows.

Same Resource (single-mix) for production) to produce Product A and Product B.

Product B has priority 1, where Product A has priority 2.

-- Following () numbers are planned numbers generated with PP run:

Product A -- has requirements posted -- (3) Aug/30th 10ea, (2) Sept/5th 10ea, (1) Sept/15th 10ea.

Product B -- has requirements posted -- (6) Aug/29th 10ea, (5)Sept/5th 10ea, (4) Sept/10th 10ea.

With DS heuristics run, hoping it would sequence as follows:

Aug/26th - Product B - (6) - 10ea

Aug/30th - Product A - (3) - 10ea

Sept/5th - Product B - (5) - 10ea <-- this comes first

Sept/5th - Product A - (2) - 10ea <-- this comes later

Sept/10th - Product B - (4) - 10ea

Sept/15th - Product A - (1) - 10ea

I appreciate for any clue to do this, using standard functionality -- since requesting additional developments we face several months to do so.

Best Regards,
