SNP and PPDs horizons


If I have SNP horizon of 0 days and PPDs horizon of 0 days. Then does the system plan twice and I see double the quantities because both SNP and PPDS are planning the same time? I mean does it create both SNP and PPDS planned orders doubling the planned qty.?

    Typically if both these horizons are zero in the Location Product, the system is supposed to check the PPDS horizon kept in /n/sapapo/mvm transaction. Usually its a best practice to have a non-zero value in the version level. under the situation where even PPDS horizon at version level is 0, I would expect PPDS orders not be created at all by any systemic process. (different PPDS heuristics work differently though) However it should be possible to create PPDS orders manually outside of the PPDS horizon. Usually SNP orders are deleted and PPDS orders created in its place by the PPDS solver as soon as those orders are inside the PPDS horizon. I would be surprised by what you are observing though.

      technically it doesnt matter how the planned orders are created

      the get considered by the planning run

      if you have existing orders it will be either reused or considered into calculation

      IMG--> in your heuristic profile, check what has been set up in the heuristics in the reuse mode

      its possible that your snp orders are pegged and your ppds orders are working off shelflife

      if you are runnig both PPDS and SNP you should look at note 481906 to understand the working of the horizons
