Scheduling semi-finished products

Hi Gurus,

Am working on a food industry implementation.

The scenario is that bulk quantities of product manufactured are packed in cans. Cans are part of BoM-semi-finished material.The cans are produced simultaneously and fed into the packing lines to pack the bulk material into cans.

The requirement is to schedule the can production simultaneous to the finished product production.

When am carrying out backward scheduling the system presumes that the cans should be readily available before packing operation starts - this is not the case.

If forward scheduling is carried out the requirement date is taken as the order start date for both the finished goods as well as the cans.

Have tried to use the lead time offsets in the BoM item details. But not getting the desired result.

Any help on the subject will be appreciated.
