We company use customer forecast which maintain in sales schedule (VA31). But customer forecast will come a bigger qty which over production capacity. So production need to produce it earler. If use MD61 Setting PIR to balance capacity, bigger sales forecast still there, system will generate more plan order. And then trigger raw material purchase. So my question is if use Sales schedule agreement, how we do capacity balance?

Hello

One option is to use SOP and run a rough-cut capacity planning before loading the forecast, in order to have an idea of the capacity load.

Another option is to use capacity leveling or capacity analysis transactions to manage the work center capacity after you load the forecast and run MRP.

Hi, Caetano

Thanks for your reply.

For option 1, if we do SOP also. MRP will also consider Sales schedule forcast/planning. There will be double requirement, how we solve it?

For option 2, it's lot of work load for user to reschedule plan order or production order, this solution is rejected by business.

Hello

In option 1 the SOP forecast should be your actual forecast and you can transfer it to demand management.

Hi, I have solve this problem. Below are detail, for your reference.

Actually after search SAP provide solution for solve this problem is use Sales plan in Sales SA. But with this solution we have one probelem is, Sales plan and production plan are different team. Sales SA is managed by Sales plan team, but base on capacity levling sales plan is managed by production plan.

And luckly, we found another solution, which can solve all our problem. That is user lot size procedure backward overlap.
