    Hi Binod,

    You define a process profile in Customizing for SCM Basis under Planning Service Manager ® Define Process Profile. A process profile includes a method for package creation and the maximum number of planning objects that a package can contain.

    This is one of the steps in creating a Planning Service Manager Jobs.

    If you setup a PSM job and run it then you get a clear idea.

    Please have a look at the below link:-

    Hi Binod

    As you might know, the Process Profile is one of the intermediate steps in a Planning Run in SPP. The planning run is executed in the Planning Service Manager and could be used to run Inventory Balancing, DRP, Deployment, Supersession etc.,

    One of the steps in the execution of the planning run is to create Selections. Selections could be for example by Products, Locations, Product Locations, Transportation Lanes etc., From the selection we get the total number of Product Locations. The value you set in the Process Profile for "Max. Pack Size" determines how many of these Product Location Combination values would be processed when each package is created.

    Have I answered your question? Please let me know!
