SAP APO Heuristic

Hi all,

how is possible to limit horizzont plan in SAP APO.

In other word, I have 2 order planidfied, the first for 1 december 2008 and the second for 1 april 2009. I want to modify my heuristic so only the first order is planned and the second order is ignored!!!

Is possible ? How ? there's some function ?

tks a lot,

bye.

    You can control it by

    planning buckets profile (/SAPAPO/TR30 - Maintain Time Buckets Profile )horizon that you define in planning book (/SAPAPO/SDP8B ).

    Or you can control it in Heuristic run

    /SAPAPO/SNP01 by SNP Horizon in Days

    Explaination :

    The horizon specified in this field is used to restrict the planning

    horizon you defined in the planning book as the planning buckets

    profile. If the horizon specified in this field is shorter than the

    planning buckets profile horizon, the system only takes into account the

    horizon specified here when planning. If the horizon specified here is

    longer than the planning buckets profile horizon, the system only takes

    into account the planning buckets profile horizon.

    The start of the planning horizon is governed by settings you made in

    the planning book.

      Tks for help,

      Now i have new information about heuristic.

      In fact I must use a custom heuristic, and I have to do the modify inside this heuristic.

      So, I have to use function ??

      I tried to chanhe the variables: start_horizzont_plan and end_horizzont_plan , but is not run correctly,

      Any idea ?

      bye

    Hi when you run the DRP run ( using program /sapapo/rsnpdrp1), you have a horizon that you can define. If you give it lets say 90 days, it does not plan for the April order as only December order comes into this horizon.

    please don't get confused with the SNP production horizon with this horizon.

    You can control planning horizon in APO using planning bucket profile.Yoiu can defines the historical or future time horizon for Demand Planning or Supply Network Planning.You can plan in monthly, weekly, daily or (combined with fiscal year variants) self-defined buckets.

    Thanks Sanjay Karkun

    since you want to ignore the order of April 2009 you can set the time bucket profile(Tcode-/SAPAPO/TR30) to say 3 months and run heuristics. This setting will ignore the latter demand and just plan for demand on dec 2008

    Hi I know you might have got the answer by now .. but still if you havent

    Then Tell me if the following helps..

    If ur using PPDS heuristic you can control the planning horizon by the Time profile

    which you assign to a heuristic in /SAPAPO/CDPSB0. IN the profile you can mention

    what will be your planning start and planning end. Tcode

    If you are using SNP heuristic there is a radio button in the heuristic /SAPAPO/SNP01

    for planning horizon where in you can mention the horizon up to shich you want to plan.

    Regards

    Viren
