CTM Lot size


Hi,

We are trying to create planned orders at our client location using CTM.

Both product location and PDS min/max lot size will be maintained.

However I am facing issues when my order quantity and product location min lot size is less than PDS min lot size.

The system does not fulfill the demand.

Also if there are multiple demand with individual quantity less then min lot size but the total greater than the min lot size.

Is there a planning parameter which will ignore the min lot size logic and create excess order quantity to meet the demand.

I understand that this is not possible in standard CTM though.

Please provide your inputs.

Thanks,

Sanjog Mishrikotkar

    Sanjog,

    What do you mean when you say "PDS Min/Max lot size"?  Exactly where are you making these settings?

      Sanjog,

      PDS's do not contain lot sizing strategies.  They only have routing info and BOM info.  The 'from lot' and 'to lot' are used mostly to determine which of your PDS should be used during planning.  If your actual planned order size (usually determined by the Product Master) is less than your 'from lot', then CTM cannot determine a valid PDS to use.  In your case you don't get any fulfillment, since there is no master data (no PDS) to base the planning on.

      I suggest that you set your production version "From" size to 'zero' or 'one', and your "To" size to 'the largest order you wish for CTM to create without manual intervention' (could be all 9's).  Then, let your product masters determine what your smallest order will be.

      As mentioned by expert Marius, Lot size information typically comes from the Product Master.  Also,  as he indicated, you can force CTM to ignore the product master lot sizing strategy.

      Best Regards,
