Deployment optimizer- Different means of Transport


I have maintained a Transportation Lane between a DC1 to DC2 with different means of Transport say with Truck,Train. Maintained lower transport costs for Train and higher to Truck.

When i run the Deployment optimizer run, optimizer selects MOT whatever MOT we maintain first whether it is lower cost or not.

I tested this by maintaining various MOT in the transportation lanes,but system selects always the first MOT we maintain. I tried using the Discrete Optimization method but results are same. Requirement is that Optimizer should select the MOT which is having lower Transportation costs.

I understand deployment optimizer will not consider the which means of Transport is cheaper to transport. Please confirm.

Thanks & Regards

    hi Akthar,

    I confirm, it is supposed to work!

    If you have 2 MOT with different cost, the cheapest should always be use (unless you are constraining the transport capacity and you reach it...)

    Could you review in the transaction /SAPAPO/SNPOPLOG - Optimizer Log Data, the result log to see if you can find your cost?

    You should see it in table IT_ARCMAT

    Meanwhile check also what the following tables are saying:

    ET_ARC (in input log)




    Those might help to understand what is happening!

    I hope it helps

    Thanks and Regards

      Hi Akthar,

      It is difficult for me to answer like that.

      If you send the table extract from the optimiser result (ET_FLEET and others) I could try to see what is missing...

      Thanks and Regards
