PP Issue in choosing the correct strategy for implementation.

Dear All,

This is my first implementation and i need all your guidance for this. Our client is manufacturing gaskets for automobiles. They produce gaskets based on sales order and also based on Forecast. So literally they have MTO and MTS scenario. So we planned to choose strategy 40 which will combine both(Correct me if am wrong). When coming to product costing, if its MTS scenario product costing is based on Production order and if MTO scenario product costing is based on sales order. But here we are combining both strategies,so product costing will be based on what..?

Kindly please correct me and suggest which one will be right and will help in a simple smooth process without confusions and how will it reflect in product costing.

    Hello

    You can combine two different planning strategies, such as 40 for MST and 20 for MTO. See the blog below for details:

    Planning Strategy 40 is correct as the production of based on forecast and sale order.

    Sale order will consume PIR/forecast.

    Product costing will be on the material ( MTS), not based on sale order(MTO).

    Sale order will not effect Product costing for Planning Strategy 40.

    Before the start of Production make sure material is product costing is completed.
