Using Container resource to restrict number of products/models allowed in a production line

186 Views

Hello, SAP APO guys

We have a scenario where several constraints of molds (multimixed resources - 2, 3, 4,5,6,7, 8,9 and even 10 capacities) in a production line (multimixed resource - 10 or 11 capacities) were modeled as pooled capacities using different capacity categories attached to mold resources, production line included.

M1(4 MOLDS MAX) -

M1(4 MOLDS MAX) -

M1(4 MOLDS MAX) -

M1(4 MOLDS MAX) -

M2 (4 MOLDS MAX) -------------- LINE 01 (10 SLOTS FOR MOLDS MAX)

M2 (4 MOLDS MAX) -

M2 (4 MOLDS MAX) -

M2 (4 MOLDS MAX) -

M3 (2 MOLDS MAX) -

M3 (2 MOLDS MAX) -

However, we still remain with a requirement to restrict the number of different molds per production line (max 3 different molds).

I was wondering if using container resources would do the job but the question is that several products can use the same mold, so I cannot model it as 3 products maximum.

Another try would be If I use 3 different previous resources(single mix resource or container) and build a resource network with these molds would be a fit.

Any thoughs?
