Consolidated planning in APO



We have 4 regional Distribution centers (RGDC), all these locations procures material from 1 central (CRDC)

Central DC procures material from External vendor, we are using MM scheduling agreement planning process for this.

Planning between Regional and central DC is via intercompany stock transfer.

So basically at central DC, we get demand from 4 regional DCs, we can see 10 distribution demand lines.

System combines them into ‘Total Demand’ and then heuristics creates 1 single receipt element for it.

e.g. 4 regional DCs want material as : 5, 15, 12, 18 = Total 50

MM Schedule line created at Central DC is for 50, we sent this demand to vendor.

When Vendor ships the material, we want physically material ship directly to regional DCs according to what they needed (5, 15, 12, 18)

How can it be possible?

As Vendor is seeing combined demand as 50 from Central DC (CRDC).

Please suggest if anyone come across such scenario?

Thanks for your inputs!
