Optimizer Run is not considering the consensus demand

Hello Team,

i'm building a POC for optimizer run for a small network. But its not considering the Consensus Demand KF values

Below are the steps i have followed.

i) Copied UNIPA05 planning area

ii) Loaded values for 1 Supplier..2 Plants..2 DC's...1 Customer through csv

iii) BOM (Component Coefficients etc) is maintained, Capacity supplies, Consumption rates, Lead-times, Transportation costs were maintained

iv) Manually maintained the Consensus Demand (Prime Input) KF & saved them for future time buckets.

v) Ran the optimizer :: Objective Function Value is 0

Where i'm getting this wrong

1) isn't Consensus Demand the prime input for the optimizer run ?

    please try to do with this attribute and the kf of non-delivery cost rate and then run the optimizer

    Hi Venkat

    on the master data Customer source you have to put a value to the attribute Customer Sourcing Ratio and then the optimizer will take into account the consensus demand.

    I hope this can help you

      Hello Jorge,

      Thanks for those swift replies.......feels like hope :)

      I checked the Customer Sourcing Ratio attribute, but they are for the Heuristics right ?

      This is what i got from help.sap.com

      By maintaining the ratios, we are explicitly dictating the algorithm on what it should consider, which will deviate from the Optimal solution.

      Apologies if i'm getting it wrong, please share your thoughts on this

    Hi Venkat

    i was making a PoC too, so i use this attribute on the transportation lane to the customer, the other thing is if you have value on the non-delivery cost rate KF?
