Heuristic run in Background : Missing demand coverage

Hi All,

Need help with the below issue.

For some products, Heuristic run in Background[in Batch job] does not plan[basically the STO planned Orders were not created ] or sometime does not cover the demand completely. When we run it manually the product is planned completely.

PFA the settings that we are passing in the Run.

What could be the possible situations in which this issue might occur or is there a none SAP note for this. Our SCM version 5.10.

    Most of such problem is due to incorrect planning sequence which is determined by low level code.
    Make sure you have executed a successful LLC determination run in /sapapo/snpllc before you run the heuristic.

    When you run heuristics manually in the data view, I assume you are running for a single location-product and it plans supply to meet entire demand. But when you run in the background, it runs in a sequence for all the location-products that are maintained in the selection profile of the variant.

    Do you have "Take into account found components in planning run" checked in the variant?

    My best guess would be that the Customizing Parameter "Heu.: Iter.per Comp." value should be increased to a large number if you are running multilevel heuristics. The batch job will be marked success even though it comes across this message in the background.

    One way to test would be to run the heuristics in the data view by loading all location-products in the Selection used for background variant.
