My question is about the demand priority in PP/DS. Do planning/scheduling heuristics consider demand priority?
I want to design a planning process as follows:
Forecast consumption strategy 20 (planning with final assembly)
Capacity of the assembly line per week: 16
Product A: forecast:10 pc and sales order:6 pc
Product B: forecast:6 pc and sales order:9 pc
In this situation I want APO to create a plan as follows:
Week1: 7 pc A (6 for for sales order and 1 for forecast) and 9 pc B (all for sales order)
Week2: 3 pc A (all for forecast) no B
(the aim is, firstly to use sales orders to create plan, if the capacity is not filled than use forecast.)
Which planning/scheduling heuristics should I use for this? As far as I know, forecast has the lowest demand priority, so if I put a high priority for sales orders, then the sales orders will be higher priority than forecast. Is there any scheduling heuristic, except "schedule sequence manually", that will give me the result I want in this scenario? Because, "schedule sequence manually" is a heuristic that can be used interactively. I want to find a way to create this plan in the planning run (transaction: /SAPAPO/CDPSB0).
Any comment is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
