Production Frequency


I have a unique Production Plant and 3 different class of products. Every kind of product has a different production frequency, for example:

A Class Weekly production

B Class Bi-weekly production

C Class Monthly production

I want to configure every product in a way that will only be possible to be produced in the stablished periods.

How can I configure this at a Product-Location level?

Can I do it with Time Streams? Is it easy to configure?

    You can do with time streams, but that will involve a lot of master data maintenance and if this production frequency changes in future, then it will make the job even more cumbersome. My suggestions is as follows ( i did a similar development before)

    1) Create a KF named MPP (Master production Schedule)

    2) Create a macro for the user where they can provide the start and select production frequency, as input. Based on the input the macro should populate a value (e.g 1) on every bucket where the production needs to happen.

    3) Now create another new macro that will run after execution of heuristic / optimizer which will simply check the values in the MPP key figure and club the planned production value exactly wherever their is a value 1 until the last bucket of the next MPP value and copy it to the actual plan production KF.

    Let me know if you need further inputs.
