planning strategy

Dear Expert

I have gone through many threads regarding strategic group still there is slight confusion .

so i would like to know with live example

AS in bottle manufacture company

1) firstly they produce big sheets of plastic which is called sheet then they cut into pieces of big sheet which is nothing but plastic roll.with these plastic roll they will make bottle in required shape .so final finished product is bottle and plastic roll is also semi finished and finished product

so for above scenerio the planning is defined in these way for sheet it is 10 make to stock and for plastic roll and bottle its 20 planning with final assembly

According to planning strategy sheet will be manufactured in stock it is not dependent on customer requirement

my question starts here

1)Does my plastic roll and bottle are made in advance or they will be manufactured on customer requirement ??

2) how the planning with final assembly works in these scenerio

3)For sheet how would i come to know these much stock i need to produce I am using external planner APO??

4)Without using demand planning is there any way to find my forecast of product

These could be intresting discussion

Thanks in advance

Regards

virender

    Virender,

    1)Does my plastic roll and bottle are made in advance or they will be manufactured on customer requirement ??

    Since you have selected strategy 20, you would typically create a forecast; and build in advance, according to the forecast. If you use this strategy, but choose not to actually enter a forecast, then you will build to sales demand and dependent demand only.

    2) how the planning with final assembly works in these scenario

    Quoted From SCM F1 Help:

    "Choose this strategy if you can accurately forecast production

    quantities for the final product. With this make-to-stock strategy,

    production quantities take into account actual sales orders as well

    as forecasted demand: incoming sales orders consume the forecast,

    and production quantities result from the net demand. The advantage

    of this strategy is that you can react quickly to customer demand."

    3)For sheet how would i come to know these much stock i need to produce I am using external planner APO??

    YOU have to determine this. If you choose not to forecast (it is usually quite complex to forecast on multiple levels of the BOM and I wouldn't recommend this) then you would commonly build to dependent demand.

    4)Without using demand planning is there any way to find my forecast of product

    You could manually upload a forecast developed externally.

    For more info about requirements strategies, see SAP online help
