SAP IBP Order Series Forecast Run WITHOUT Optimizer: No Stock projected at DC

Hello Experts,

Can you help on the below requirement. In Order series we are using constraint forecast run without optimizer for simple network of 1 Plant and 1 DC.

We want plant to put all the stock to DC and projected stock at plant to be zero.We can handle this in optimizer but in normal forecast constrained run how to tackle this requirement.

Thanks,

Akhilesh

    hi Akhilesh,

    I'm afraid, push planning with the order based priority heuristic is hardly possible. Why not using the optimizer. Here you can achieve this like you mentioned.

    Hi Michael,

    Yes, For the time being we have handled this requirement through Optimizer run.

    But the issue is Order series Optimizer is not supporting the lot size based on weekly capacity for the demand coming from Unconstrained forecast. while for the Adjusted manual demand optimizer considers the lot size based on weekly capacity. I have raised the OSS but still awaiting reply.

    For the same settings we are seeing that the unconstrained forecast run supports the lot size based on weekly capacity and hence using it.

    In the forecast constrained run we also tried keeping target Stock, safety days of supply at Plant to zero but still projected stock is coming at plant.

    Regards,
