Trimming in APO


I am working in a paper manufacturing company and in the production process we have Reels and eventually cut into rolls. Multiple orders with the same dimension will be trimmed into 1 single Reel. The positions decide on which orders should be placed accordingly to get maximum output (less loss). We use external trimming solution to merge orders and get them back to APO to convert to Production order. My question is - Do we have trimming capability in SAP APO? or in ECC is-Mill scenarios?

Any info in this line would also be helpful.

    Dear Uthaman,

    we do not have a trimming capability in APO. We have a BAPI that connects at many customers to 3rd party trim packages, and there are a number of mill industy partner solution with embedded trim capabilities.

    More information on the standard scenario are linked here:

    A number of good partners for this topic have been at the SAP Forest Products, Paper and Packaging Forum. You may want to take a look here for more information on the event and review presentations on the topic:
