Product Mix in PP/DS


Hi everyone,

We want to design a scenario as follows:

Demand plan is released from DP to PP/DS in weekly bucket. Requested delivery date of all the Sales Orders for the month are the first day of the month. Forecast consumption strategy 20 (planning with final assembly). Since sales orders will consume the forecast, net requirement will be at the beginning of the month (for the consumed forecast). For the unconsumed forecast, the requirement date is the beginning of the week. However, we want to create a production plan as a mix of several product groups for each day. For instance, if we have a sales order of Product1 for 10 pieces and the daily capacity is 10 pieces, I do not want system to plan 10 pieces of Product1 for a day, instead, I want system to calculate monthly net requirement for a month, and distribute the production plan to days for every product. Is there a way we can do this in PP/DS? OLTP system is not a DI system, as far as I know Model Mix Planning cannot be used with standard R/3. Can you please comment if we can use MMP with R/3? If we cannot, can you help to find another way to design the scenario?

Thanks in advance,
