Capacity modelling

If I have 2 resources R1 and R2 belonging to a resource group RG, how can I model the capacity at the resource group level and at the resource level? The capacity at the resource group level should override the capacity at the resource level.

    Hi Mathew,

    From your query i understand you have available capacity at resource group level and you want it to be available at resource ID level. To achieve this you can create a kf at resource group-location level and upload the total available capacity. Then create another kf at resource id -location level(also having non-root attribute resource group) and define the calculation equating it to the earlier key figure.

    You would need to input an additional key figure to make the join work else input and output planning level wont match. For ex-

    CAPASUPPLY@PERLOCRES = CAPASUUPLYRESGROUP@PERLOCRESGRP ---- input CAPASUUPLYRESGROUP@PERLOCRESGRP, dummyKF@PERLOCRES

    P.S -If you are on IBP 6.x, then you can use dis aggregation operator instead of above calculation

    Thanks,

    Rohit

    • Hi Ankur,

      To make supply planning work, you will have to bring available capacity at Res-Loc level. You can change the planning level from ResGroup-PrdFamily to ResID-LocID using join functionality. For ex-

      capacity@PrdIDLocIDResID =capcaity@ResGroupPrdFamily*Dummy@PrdIDLocIDResID ------ Create a dummy key figure with value 1 and upload it for desired prd-loc-resid combinations. This planning level should also have resource group and PrdFamily as non-root attribute.

      then define copy operator to copy value from kf capacity@PrdIDLocIDResID to CAPASUPPLY@ResID-LocID

      Thanks,

      Rohit
