Capacity Bottleneck

Hi Experts,

We have lots of capacity flexibility at production plant like if one reactor is free then one product can be manufactured in other reactor also. This changes are happening very often.

So in APO can system automatically make capacity levelling and planning ?

Regards

    Hello Sunriser,

    There is no function of automatic capacity leveling and planning, you have to run the planning engine like Heuristic, optimizer etc on it. You can manually schedule it or you can take the planing run in background so that system automatically make capacity levelling and planning Run capacity leveling to produce a feasible plan.

    Please refer this useful help link,

    Hi

    Your capacity requirement is generated on the basis of demand elements and to have feasible plan you need to opt for right planning engine considering business requirements example heuristic, CTM, optimizer, etc. Thereafter you either need to carry out this manually or define background job. Check below for reference:

    Hello Sun,

    Where are you doing the changes? However look after STRATEGY button. Be sure that the strategy setup is FINITE mode. Then, when you will do some changes the capacity will be taken in consideration. So, no needed to do the leveling! The sequence can be made manually or through an heuristic that should be available in the transaction!

    Thanks,

    Regards, Marius
