STORAGE CAPACITY

Hi experts

Version 6.2

Currently we are starting with the storage contraint on IBP for supply, but is doesn't work correctly, We have taken the following steps:

1) Copy planning area SAP4

2) We added the attribute Resource Type on the Master Data Type Resource with the value 1

3) When we run the optimizer the value of the Capausage is: receipts  multiplied by Capacity Consumption Rate but the Capacity Consumption Rate

should be multiplied by projected stock.

Do you know any solution?

Best Regards

Jorge

    Hello Jorge,

    The RESOURCETYPE attribute is on RESOURCELOCATION master data and not on RESOURCE.

    You need to provide a value of 1 for resourcetype attribute for Storage resources.

    The capacity consumption rate is specified for CAPACONSUMPTION attribute on RESOURCELOCATIONPRODUCT master data type or as in key figure CAPACONSUMPTION depending on whether CONSUMPTIONTS is 'X" or blank.

    Thanks,

    Pramod

    I think thats the formula to calculate Capausage.

    Further more the Capacity Consumption should be an input KF and not calculated.

    Why should it be multiplied by projected stock?

      Hello Jorge

      If i understand your question correctly, what remains would probably be a new calculated KF

      Capasupply - Capausage = Remaining Capacity ?

      Projected stock is calculated in other way as far as I know and not applicable in this case, I think.

    Hi Pramod


    Thanks for you help, i removed the RESOURCETYPE attribute on RESOURCE master data and i attached it to RESOURCELOCATION master data with the value of 1.


    But the resource keeps functioning as handling resource using total customer receipts as an input.


    do you know how to make the handling resource work as a Storage resource?


    Thanks,


    Jorge
