    SNP production horizon is the time period where SNP does nt create any planned order, and PP/DS horizon is the time period where PP/DS plan in details level. This horizon should be shorter than SNP production horizon. If the SNP production horizon is smaller than the PP/DS horizon, the planning horizons of SNP and PP/DS overlap. SNP and PP/DS can both use this overlapping period for planning.

      SNP Horizon: Time segment, during which SAP APO Supply Network Planning (SNP) does not plan production. This means that SNP does not create any planned orders in it but shifts production to the first day after the end of the production horizon.

      PPDS Horizon: Time segment in which Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) can automatically create, change, or delete receipts. The duration of the horizon begins on the current date and continues for this number of calendar days into the future.
