SNP and R3

Hi, all guru

I'm new to SNP, would like to clarify the process flow .

What is the output of each SNP process after release the forecast from DP to SNP

1. is the first process is DRP ? when we run optimizer, what is the output , any order send to R3

2. how about Deployment and TLB run , any output , any order type created ? any data sent to R3

3. when R/3 received those data , what R/3 do with it .

4 what is the flow between SNP and MM/PP at R3

5. what is Rough cut capacity planning , it is seperate data being load to SNP, how to relate to SNP process

it will be very helpful if we can have a scenario base of example

many thanks

    Hi :

    following are the steps :

    Once the demand plan is released form DP to SNP , Planned Independent Requirements are created for SNP / PPDS.

    Now performing SNP Runs through Heuristics , CTM or Optimizer Results in Distribution & Production Plan for

    Medium to long term horizon . After SNP run you can generate alerts for any exception and resolve them .

    SNP plan now consist of Transaction data (Purchase requisition , SNP Stock transfer order or SNP Planned order) . If you are using PPDS , SNP orders can be converted to PPDS orders which are more detailed .

    After production planning is complete , Deployment confirms stock transfer order based on current receipts and demand .

    TLB runs groups together stock transfer orders into shipments .

    All these transaction data is passed to R/3 through CIF .

    SNP planning is rough cut only if you are utilizing SNP PPM which only contains critical resources and material .
