Dear all,

Scenario:

I have two external sources for Raw material say Bearing, with usage probability 50:50 Now a days procurement is maintained manually. How should i map it in optimizer scenario. As quota arrangement is not recognized in optimizer. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Can anybody Guide me how should i share the procurement between two vendors.

    For clarity, do you mean the PP/DS Optimizer? As ths SNP Optimizer recognises Quota Arrangements.

      I don't think there is a way of giving an equal share to two suppliers simply through quota arrangements, nor can I think of a way of setting the costs to try and gain an equal share from suppliers. As Kenneth said try modelling using capacities or minimum quantities.

      There was a similar discussion on the use of Quota Arrangements, but for the Heuristics rather than the Optimizer:

      Let us know if you find a solution.

    If you are using SNP Optimizer, you really can't. Unless you model each vendor with contraints (capacity) and you define capacity so that both vendors are needed to meet the demand. However, the capacity will have to be defined based upon the demand.

    You can now in v5.0 set up minimum usage for a vendor...

    I haven't used this yet, but you can try.
