SCM Product Substitution procedue... Just the Subs!

I am looking at getting alternative products available to our sales rep during ATP.

These products are typically a size larger for the same Grade or the same size material but on a better quality Grade.

I have tried to do this by adding a Network (Type 1) Product Substitution procedure. With Entries like below:

Product Substitute-Product

A B

A C

A D

B C

B D

C D

D E

This works great for the input material “A”. The ATP returns “A”, “B”, “C” and “D” for each Location substitution.

The issue occurs when I ATP material “B”. The ATP returns “B”, “C”, “D” and “A”.I do NOT want “A” returned since it would be a downgrade for “B”.

I would like just products from the Substitute-Products column returned. My "Rule controls" are “Start at the Top of the list” with “InpProd1st” and no restrictions and the Combinations are "Union". I have added some examples and details in the attached file.

Anyone know how to only show the Substitute-Product for in input product only? Thanks for any information or suggestions!

    Hi Tim,

    If you want sequential substitution why are you not using chain (0).

    Thanks, Nikhil
