Planning Strategy to Use

Hi,

I am not sure which planning strategy to use. My scenario is that I need to have a strategy that is make-to-stock in principle but the planning strategy selected is able to link the Sales Order and Planned Orders. This linkage would enable me to know which Planned order should be cancelled/changed in the event that the sales order gets cancelled/changed. I am thinking of using Strategy 40, but it is not able to link sales order and planned order. Any thoughts?

Pls advise.

Thanks.

Rgds,

Sue

    Hi Sue,

    If you need link between the sales order and the planned order means then it is not possible in Make to stock strategy you have to go only for Make to order strategy.

    You may have two or three sales order but it will create the 1 planned order with combined quantity so you cant relate that with sales order.

    Better find out the exact business scenario and go for the strategy.

    Thanks and Regards,

      Hi,

      The company uses a make-to-stock strategy. However, they want to be able to relate to the sales order. From what I read on Strategy 40,this is what it says below.

      <i>Choose Logistics -> Production -> Master Planning -> Demand Management -> Evaluations -> Display total requirements.</i> The Total Requirements List shows only those sales orders that have reduced the independent requirements.

      from this screen, it seems that we are able to see the sales order.

      Based on what you said, it means that there is no way we can use make-to-stock and have linkage with sales order? Which strategy would you recommend?

      Thanks.

    Hi Sue,

    If use Individual requirement in MRP4, i think you can link the sales order to planned order becoz it will create an individual order instead of creating a single planned order. iam not sure try it in the system..

    If you use 20, you cant do make to stock thats a pure make to order, so you wont have independent req's.

    thanks,

      Hi,

      Does this mean i can use make to stock strategy (maybe Strategy 40) with a linking of sales order and planned order by using individual requirement in MRP4?

      Pls clarify.

      Thanks.

    Hi Sue,

    If you want to relate the sales order and the Planned order then go for Make to Order starategy like 20 etc.

    Hi Sue,

    If you use the individual requirements in MRP4 also, then it will not give the link that the particular planned order created is for the particular sale order we cant link that in make to stock strategy.

    Hi Sue,

    In MTS scenario it is not possible to link the sales order and planned order. STgy 40 is mainly used where sales rqt is taken care while planning in addition to PIR.

    Only if Sales order qty is more than the PIR it will have a impact on planned order else there is no impact on planned order.

    Thanks and regards,
