I am new to the field of production planning and am looking for guidance on a specific requirement. Client is into packaging products production (cartons) and printing. There are two different plants for packaging product production (Plant A) and for printing (Plant B). Sometimes customers places order only for packaging product in Plant A , sometimes he places order only for printing or sometimes he wants the carton to be produced and printed.
My question is do we require two different plants for production and printing?
If two plants are required and sales order is placed is linked to plant A, how to transfer the semi-finished good (carton) to plant B for final printing and do GR against sales order in plant A?
Kindly guide me on this.
