Sub Contracting Planning


We have a scenario where the production of finished happens through following ways

1. In house production

2.Through Subcontracting-By sending semi finished goods

3.Direct Procurement of the finished goods from vendor who is same as sub contractor

My question is whether this scenario is possible in SNP Heuristics. Do we need to use quota arrangements for this case?

Please let me know if you have any relevant material in this case

    How would system come to know that I have to produce inhouse or purchase external?

    You need a quota arrangement here to map this scenario. You can test it with SNP Heuristic.

    Please refer useful wiki document on quota arrangement in PPDS
