Using Dynamic lot sizing policy with Min Lot Size


Hi Experts,

In one of our implementations, we are using minimum lot size however, a new requirement where Heuristics should intelligently procure with respect to Lot Sizes. For example:

If my demand is:

100 100 100 100 100 over 5 weeks and the min lot size is 300

then Heuristics is now returning:

300 0 0 300 0

As a result we are having an excess of 100 units of stock which is not desirable.

The expectation is to achieve a receipt of:

500 0 0 0 0

We are thinking of utilizing Dynamic Lot sizing in this respect. Now the question is, Is it possible to use dynamic lot sizing policy with Min Lot Size defined?

Cost information are not available so we cannot use Optimizer in this case.
