How does CTM work incase of Multile Source of Supply

Hi Gurus,

We are working for a customer where we have to impliment CTM.

Scenario:- DC is connected to 2 plant , plant 1 and plant 2. So there are 2 TLanes connecting the DC with the plants.And DC->Plant 1 TLane is highest priority.

lets assume i have some demand at DC.Lets say 1000 Nos. If i dont have any stock at DC, system will first look at Plant 1( because priority 1) for stock . If stock is at Plant 1 is 200 Nos, then system will do stock transfer of 200 from Plant 1-> DC. After that what system will do???

Will system check stock at Plant 2 first??? or if the capacity is there in Plant 1 , system will go ahead and produce in Plant 1??

Confusion is in how do search strategy have any control in that??? Learnt that It works for a location. So, while starting from DC1, after consuming the stock, system will do source of supply determination , where it will find Plant 1. Now when search strategy will be executed for Plant 1, after consuming stock in Plant 1, will system go and check stock in Plant 2 or it will produce in Plant 1???

Any help is appreciated.

thanks,

Priya

    Hi

    it depends on how u wanna configure it, i remember my implementation exp it will behave as mentioned below

    1 if u put priorities to Tlane only then

    first it will exhaust the stock and then produce in plant 1. and if the capacity is fully utilised

    then it will move to plant 2.

    Regards

    Hi VIrender Thakur,

    Thanks for your reply. Need some clarity regarding , it will exhaust stock of both Plant 1 and Plant 2 first???? Then will produce in Plant 1??? Or wit will exhaust stock of Plant 1 and then produce till the capacity exist then it will do the same for plkant 2???

    How does configuration change the behaviour?? Please explain a bit.

    First the stock of plant 1 then capacity of plant 1 after that the stock of plant 2 and capacity of 2.

    In ur search strategy even if u define the stock that is applicable to the stock on dc. the last priority

    is normally given to source of supply which will be the 2 plants. first the demand will flow to plant 1

    consume in the order of seach startegy valuated stock, quality stock ( if wanted)...........sources of supply

    in the location. once all full then move on to plant 2.

    i dont think it will it for cross location as some one mentioned to u the settings are for a location at one point in time.

    -regards
