Components are consumed in wrong location after CTM run

Dear Gurus:

I've faced a strange problem after CTM run. I give you an example: Say I have a PPM in Location A.(Planning Loc is A, and Production Loc is blank.) But after planning run, the components of this PPM consumed at another location B. It is very strange, cuz there is no any transportation lane existed. And in PPM, I cannot find related setting to adjust this result. Is there anything I need to check? Thanks for your advice.

    The reason is in the PPM, the product that would have been chosen for component could have been selected from the wrong location. Try to reconfigure the PPM with the component at the right location. Pretty sure that the PPM is setup with component at location B instead of A.

    Dear Sir:

    I still cannot get your point. Would you explain it more clear? Thanks very much.

    regards,

    • When you configure PPM, you define the components as input and output. the system gives you a choice of pulling in the input component from different locations. So technically you can pull in component at a remote location instead of the location you want it to be pulled from. So APO does allow a PPM where resource could be defined in Location Z, input components could be from Location Y and output components that get produced in Location X. In regular situations, you just need to ensure that all the locations are the same. So try to reconstruct your components in the PPM.
