Sequencing planned orders in APO

416 Views

Hello everyone.

I was hoping to get some pointers for a certain requirement in APO.

Industry: Automotive/truck manufacturing

Scenario:

SNP planned orders are converted to PP/DS planned order for the next one week. Each order is of 1 piece; there are several orders per day. The planned orders are to be sequenced in APO for the next day. No setup optimization is required. Now, assume there are 5 different categories if vehicles to be produced on a single resource, viz. A, B, C, D, & E. The orders must be sequenced such that there are at least 5 other vehicles of any category after each vehicle of category A. Similarly, there must be at least 4 other vehicles of any category after each vehicle of category B. Again, at least 2 vehicles of category C must be produced together. Refer example below:

E.g.: A-> B-> C-> C-> E-> B-> A-> D

There are multiple constraints of this sort. The final outcome must be a sequence of orders as given above.

Any options available to handle this scenario in APO?

Regards,

Arpan
