Production Scheduling-SAP ByD

Hi Team,

Appreciate a swift response.

Please find the use case below: 1. On a daily basis of planning the production orders it will be lined up based on the scheduling(the time should be based on the BOO resource timings for that Product ).
2. In such case ,a rush order would b coming which need to prioritized over the existing production orders, when a rush order is created and in Prod Order earliest start date is changed to the recent date by-passing the existing order's dates.
3. Once the rush order is prioritized the existing orders has to be rescheduled automatically according to the capacity of the resources maintained in Bill of Operations.

System simulation data,

1. FG material created with Batch type
2. BOM created.
3. BOO created for a fixed lot qty of 170 and the resource duration for those activities are maintained as 8 hrs.
4. Production Model also generated of the same. Three different SO orders are created @ 3 different Requested date, and customer demand is run for them,3 diff Prod Proposals are created at same date, they are released for further processing.
But these Production orders start date and time are exactly the same for all three. We would like to know why the system is behaving in such a way though the capacity to produce for a day is in 1 batch which is 1 order. and also how can we add a rush order in between and reschedule the Production orders when the system behaves such a way. Your Swift response would be of great Help.

    Hello Ezhil,

    currently the system can only do an automatic rescheduling based on the capacity for production proposals using the load leveling, which is offered in the resource load view in the supply planning work center. Once production proposals are released they cannot be rescheduled automatically by the system.

    I propose to work like this: use load leveling beyond a horizon starting 1 or 2 weeks in the future, and only release proposals to execution for the near future. If further rescheduling needs to be done please have a look at the production control work center, view Production Orders - subview By Order Operation.

    You can then select all the operations for a certain resource and reschedule manually accordingly one by once. Rescheduling is currently only supported for not-released production orders.

    Best regards,
