Storage, Handling and Production Resource in IBP S&OP Heuristics

Hello Experts,

I maintained a storage resource for a Location in IBP.

In Location Resource Template

Capacity Supply = 100

Resource Type = 1.

After this settings there is a Demand of 200 at the location. I expected the Heuristics to give a capacity utilization of 200%.

But in the capacity tab had no results

    Hi Padam,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I activated "Capacity Supply as time series " indicator to "X" in Location resource master data Uploaded the Capacity via the Excel Template - " CAPASUPPLY" was visible as per the upload.

    But The CAPASUPPLYTS checkbox is selected in the corresponding master data object, the planning algorithm derives the capacity supply from the input key figure. What if the capacity is Time Independent & it should pick whatever has been maintained in the Location Resource master data?

    Without the CAPASUPPLYTS checked "X", i expected the value to be same across all periods as per master data.

    Please correct my understanding if i am wrong.

    Hi Argha,

    If you want to model storage resource you should follow below process steps.

    1. Define the resource using the Resource master data type.

    2. Assign the resource to the location and define the capacity supply of the resource using the Location Resource master data type

    3. Define which products can be handled or stored by the resource at the location and define the capacity consumption of the resource using the Location Product Resource master data type

    Once you set the master data properly check the below key figures.

    CAPASUPPLY, CAPACONSUMPTION, CAPADEMAND, CAPAUSAGE

    Best Regards,

    • Hi Lingaiah,

      Thanks for the reply. I have maintained the master data as suggested, but the Capacity key figures are not getting populated.

      I am attaching the snapshot of the master data for the Storage resource. Request your inputs, what needs to change from the master data perspective.

    Hi Argha

    you can't see the capacity utilization until u made capacity as time series. Do the following changes and test.

    Activate "Capacity Supply as time series " indiactor to "X" in Location resource master data and maintain same capacity at keyfigure " CAPASUPPLY" .

    Re-run the heuristic. Hope it will solve your issue.
