Restriction of multiple products in a Tank Resource at same time

Hello Experts,

Our Client's requirement is - a Tank resource should keep only one Product at a time and it shuld not allow another product till previous product drained out.

Example -

Product A -- Filling order --- Filling process for 6 HRs and Tank remains filled for 2 days

                       Draining order - Draining process for 2 HRs and Tank get drained out (Empty)

now filling order of Product B should not be scheduled during those 2 Days.

Resource master settings -Storage Character. --- "Allow Multiple Products" and "Set Remaining fill level to Zero" both boxes are unchecked

System- SCM 7.02

Current situation -

System is allowing to schedule filling order of Product B during those 2 days with an Alert "Invalid Mix"

Is there any option or functionality by which we can restrict system to fill another product (B) if one product (A) is already present in the tank.

Any suggestions or dumentation would be very much appreaciated.

With Regards,

Sajit Singh

    Hi All,

    The  tank scheduling works only with PP/DS Optimizer.

    The resource master settings mentioned in the above message are considered during optimization run only. Therfore, the best option is to use PP/DS optimizer, where the entire process gets automated and no need of manual drag and drop for rescheduling.
