SNP Optimizer: Capacity fulfillment

Dear All,

We have a scenario in which optimizer run is taken for the sales orders on plant. Now if I have extra capacity available today and my sales order requirement date is one week later then SNP optimizer plans it one day before requirement date and it does not plan it today though I have extra capacity available.

Kindly suggest how I can prepone the production in optimizer and then can use extra capacity available later on for my tentative demand.

    Hi Vaibhav,

    Just have a quick check on the storage cost maintained for the Product master. I guess you have maintained some storage cost. You can keep the storage cost least or zero for the Product-at that particular location. so the optimiser will plan the production earlier than the requrements.

    Hope this helps

      Dear Kumar,

      Yes we have maintained same storage cost for all products. And its value is minimal. If we remove it then it plans product randomly like some just before demand and some before one week for example.

      Can we define rule somewhere which will help us prepone production of only those products which has firm demand (sales order) in system. Because there exist free capacity in the system and would like to use it for confirm demand.

      Regards,

      Vaibhav

    True... If its 0 then the answer will be random as the costs are the same.

    There is no way to accomplish what you want.

    In v5.0 you can set a minimum capacity utilization.
