APO - Release creation profile for (MM) Scheduling Agreement - Aggregation issue

In APO (7.4) in customizing of the Collaborative Procurement (Procurement Scheduling Agreement) we can maintain the Release Creation Profile for (MM) scheduling agreement releases. Comparing with the R3 (MM) functionality there is no function of aggregation horizon in the “release creation profile” in APO.

In R3 I can define the aggregation horizon in days, weeks, months…But in APO in the release creation profile there is no aggregation functionality.

Below is a pic of the release creation profile, on the left in R3 & on the right in APO.

I am aware that in APO I could use the 3-horizon heuristic to create the schedule lines in a similar way as the aggregation horizon in R3 is set (in the release creation profile). I might also try to define lot-size procedure for a periodic lot-size of 3 periods of time. But when I use more than one supplier for the same material I am at my edge. I cannot use the 3-horizon heuristic neither the lot-size procedure with more than one supplier for the same material.

Therefore I am trying to find a solution to be able to somehow aggregate the schedule lines on the delivery schedule transmitted to the supplier in APO. How could this be done?

Thank you in advance for any useful hints!

Best regards,
