Procurement type X or special procurement

Hello,

we are using SAP and APO SNP to plan our supply network.

We have the following situation:

Factory (plant A) and warehouse (plant B). Plant A has limited storage space so all raw material and finished goods are stored in plant B.

SKU X is produced in the Factory A. SKU Y is required as input for SKU X (this is defined in the BOM). SKU Y is also produced in Factory A.
When we plan SKU X, we see dependend demand in Plant A for SKU Y.
SKU Y is currently setup as procurement type "in house production".
But due to limited storage space in the Factory, all material is stored in warehouse B.


We would like to see the requirement for SKU Y in plant B as distribution demand from Plant A. But to be able to plan the production of U in Factory A, we need the net requirement from B. (now it seems to become an infinite loop).

How can we set this up?

I have read about using procurement type X (inhouse or external procurement). I have also read about special procurement type 80.

    Hi,

    Cycles are not supported in SNP.

    Maybe you can consider planning in another location model.

    See link: https://help.sap.com/viewer/5632d7cbffa04b21be22106e9a212038/7.0.4/en-US/9931c95360267614e10000000a174cb4.html

    Best Regards,
    Ada

    the planning in another location model explicitly states that transport/STO flow from factory to warehouse is not possible.

    this is however a requirement. so my issue is still not solved.
