Inconsistent planning results on Fridays and some random days

SNP is not considering the quota arrangements and transportation lanes on Fridays and some week days. Instead of sourcing from internal distibution center, SNP is creating external vendor requisitions. This happens for the first requisition. For example, if I have a requirement for 10 for product A on 01/20 and 20 on 1/30, SNP is creating the first requisition for 10 from an external source and 20 from an internal source whereas it should have created both from the internal source. Special procurement is 40 for the product A and it should source from an internal distribution center. Please provide any details if you have seen this issue in the past. We have the latest version of APO.

    Hi,

    I am not sure, if I understand the issue here! You are saying the sourcing should happen from a DC as per the external procurement  set for the product. Instead its sourcing from a vendor for the 1st requirement and later for every requirement, its sourcing from the DC (as per ex-proc) only.

    This should not happen. What is your planning engine here? Optimizer?

    Did you check the transportation duration/lead time from the DC? I mean is it possible to meet the demand on 20th Jan, while sourcing from the DC?

    Also please check in ECC, if you have any source list maintained for the prod-location.

    Thanks,

    Satyajit

      Hi Satyajit, the Quota arrangements looks good as well. There is one more that I just found out. The problem requisitions have the same start and end dates. These reqs always start on a day after the weekend or a holiday in the shipping calendar? Does that ring a bell? Is there a SNP sourcing issue or a date calculation error? Why is SNP creating external requisitions when the start and end dates are the same for requisitions that are created after a holiday?

    Hi Nair,

    Try to reconcile the master data of Prod A with R3 system before executing the SNP heuristics.
