Altrernate resources in SNP PDS

Dear All,

We have a scenario where we have several alternate resources coming into SNP PDS. However when I run SNP optimizer, the run terminates with an error.

Can i use alternate resources in SNP PDS for optimization?

Regards,

Kedar Agarkar

    You can certainly use alternate resources in SNP. When you transfer different production versions with routings the system creates that many SNP PDS. You can then take Optimiser run. System will choose least cost PDS & also look at capacity constraint.

    What error is optimiser giving? please elaborate.

      Hi Nitin,

      In our case, using the classification system in R/3, we are able to CIF the alternate resources in SNP PDS. Our requirement is that SNP optimizer should consider the alternate resources while doing the planning.

      I got the following error "liveCache COM routine ended with own error code 110" and "Error creating orders". So the SNp optimizer is not creating any planned orders.

    v5.0 SNP Optimizer does not support alternate modes:

    Since you can only create one mode per activity in the SNP PPM, you cannot define any alternative resources for a production activity. To define alternative resources, you must create one PPM per mode combination. You can use the SNP PPM Generation With Lot Size Margin function to generate SNP PPMs automatically for multiple PP/DS PPM mode combinations.

    Hi Kedar

    Are you using configurable products in R/3? (what classification system?)

    SNP does not support configuration. It cannot read characteristic values.

    Hi ,

    I also have the same scenario , please let me know what you have done to overcome this scenario.

    Thanks and regards

    Sravan,

    The classification of resources on recipes works well for The PPDS optimizer. In this way you have one PPDS to explode to a planned order and you have multiple modes. The PPDS optimizer can select the correct mode base on its optimization cryteria of delays and set up.

    This approach does not work for SNP. For that you need to create a recipe and production version for each resource. Then with different costs the SNP optimizer can select between PDS's/resources.
