Production Planning by grouping families


Does SAP S/4HANA has built in the possibility of planning production by grouping items/sku by families or a related characteristics?

The scenario that concerns me is of multi tier production. To illustrate my case lets say I have 3 finished goods all made with the same BULK/Formula and when the process runs I want the system to group then together meeting certain criteria (e.g. max days of early production or look ahead duration ...). This way the batch of the BULK/Formula is optimized and the stock of the individual SKU as well.

We have other situations where at a single level (packing) products are grouped by packaging size (bottle, carton ...), minimizing this way changeover and machine set up as well as products moq.

Thanks in advance for your help
