How to use the minimum lot size in sap IBP

Hi experts,

We are trying to solve a problem of minimum lot sizing, on the master data SOURCEPRODUCTION, we enter the minimum, maximum lot size and the raunding value but when we run the optimizer it does not respect the lot sizes, for example:

we have a demand of 2500 in every period (total of 8),

capacity production of 12000 per period

minimum lot size of 3500 and rounding value of 8, and the result of the optimizer for Production is 3000 per period.

is this issue related to the lot size policy?

    Hi,

    Rounding may not be considered if discretization is set to Zero in optimizer profile. Please change the discretization horizon at least for production and then re-run the optimizer.
