    Hi Kaushik,

    These parameters are used for the scheduling heuristic in PP/DS. If there is a shortage of a product, the system first determines all possible sources of supply. Sources include transporation lanes and the production process model.

    These are sorted according to their costs. The source of supply with the lowest costs is first checked. If the product can be taken from this source on time, the system terminates the search.

    If this is not possible, the system checks the next source with the lowest costs.

    Both Single level and multilevel are quantity-dependent costs which are incurred when using this production process model

    Hope it is clear now

    Please confirm

    Regards

    R. Senthil Mareeswaran.

      Hello ,

      I read now in some material that single level cost is relevant for SNP optimizer whereas the multilevel cost is for CTM & PP/DS. Can any one please suggest if there is any other diff between the two ...
