SNP constraints across production lines

Please consider the following production constraints:

- If resource X is making product A, then resource Y must be stopped.

- If resource X is making product A, then resource Y must be making product B at the same time.

- If resource X is making product A, then resource Y cannot be making product B at the same time.

Any ideas on how these constraints can be modeled in SNP (heuristics, CTM or optimizer)?

Thank you.

    Good luck. I seriously doubt it. SNP doesn't consider characteristics. CTM creating PPDS orders will consider characteristics in BOM but it won't allow interdepency between products.

    You would have to be creative and create dummy resources to reflect each possible combination.

    I would suggest PPDS.
