In a plant they produce a customer specific semi-finished which is packaged in different formats.
When a sales order is created for one of the MTO finished goods that will trigger the production of the semi-finished. The lot-size of which is larger than requirements from single order line. Therefore customer must make sure that total requirements from sales order lines matches quantity of semi-finished. The problem is that with normal MTO SAP will create one planned order for the semi-finished for every sales order line. Instead I want single planned order to cover customer requirements.
This shoud be make-to-order production of semi-finished good and the finished goods and want to have forecast on the finished goods.
Somebody solved this before?
