Constraint planning in APO

Hi Gurus,

There a business requirement, where system perform planning across the location with restrictions. System should check stock at organisation level with constraints. For example requirement created at loc1 and stock exists at loc2, so before creating stock transfer, system should check distance between these two locations, then decide to create either stock transfer or external procurement.

thanks in advance

Regards,

Tanvir

    Hi Tanvir,


    You can create a Macro to do it.

    We had a similar requirement and we created a macro executed after the SNP at an aggregate level (for all the plants). This macro checked if there was an overstock situation by comparing the actual days supply vs the target days supply (this target days supply was a fixed value defined for the all the region).

    Then when we found an existing overstock, we balance the stocks levels by creating a stock transfer order between the location with overstock and the location creating replenishment orders... Finally, we re-run the SNP. You can maybe follow a similar approach.

    Kind Regards,

    • Hi Tanvir,

      If you have maintained T-lane between the locations and maintained distance and transportation time, then APO can plan accordingly. APO will take time, not distance, into account. But we can relate distance with time, right?
