SNP Optimizer and product priority

Hi all,

Is SNP Optimizer respects product priority? Some part of the documentation says, it respects, and someother part says no consideration. Which is correct ?

    Hi Shibu,

    Optimizer does nt consider 'product priority' or 'order priority'.

    However you can give priority to specific product by giving different penalty cost, for different product. product with higher priority, you can set higher penalty cost (non-delivery, delay..) as compare to lower priority product.

    Then optimizer will give priority to the product which has higher penalty cost, to minimize the penalty cost (if there is a capacity constraint)

    Hi Shibu,

    The product priority is not considered by the Optimizer -

    There are actually two ways of giving the priority -

    1. It is by giving different Non Delivery and Delay Penalty Cost for these products.

    2. The other option is SNP Optimizer Priority Profile which is less complicated in terms of Master Data Maintenance. If you define the priority profile then the optimizer first plans the products with more priority and then plan the other set of products.

    If you use automatic cost generation (in Optimiser profile), you can then ask the Optimiser to respect product/product-loc prioirities.
