If , there is no capacity with resource A , then it can be manufactured in resouce B.

As per my knowledge , We can maintain alternate resource.

I also want to know how maintain the priority for uasge of the resource.

I want to maintain highest priority for usage of resource A , if A

do not have the capacity then resource B should be used.

Please let me know How to maintain an alternative resource and priorities for the resources?

Please give the tcode.

I am working with PDS in PP/DS.

When The planner will do planning of the product P1--- on resource A , Then he will get a -- Alert for capacity not available.

Then he will execute the planning with alternate resoure B.

Waiting for your answers.
