Customize Planning Strategy

Hi,

We have a requirement where we receive the Customer order for say 500 pcs to be delivered in week 48. But due to capacity constraints we have to split the requirement manually for 125 for week 45, 46, 47, 48. So we need to create PIR's for such weeks 45-48 & then create Planned Orders with MRP. Now, problem is if I use Strategy 40 & create PIR as specified above, the PIR's are already consumed by Sales order. How can I customize a new strategy to manage this?

    Hello

    I don't think that a planning strategy would resolve this issue. It is not a problem to have a single planned order of 500 PCs, as long as you have the order start and finish date calculated correctly. You can use a distribution key on the production version if you want to see the planned order distributed over the weeks.

    Another alternative is to play around with your lot sizing procedure and define a maximum or a fixed lot sizing procedure, in order to generate several planned orders. You can use a takt time to spread these orders over the weeks or use capacity leveling to dispatch them according to your capacity constraints.

      Hi Caetano,

      I know that Strategy 10 doesnt consider CReq thats a reason I am looking for a way to customize a new strategy copying 40 where PIR's doesnt get consumed by CReq but at the same time Customer Requirements should not be considered for MRP thus no Planned Order for Customer Req. I know this doesnt sounds logical but thats how I need it. Is it possible ?

    Hello

    I don't think it is possible in the standard system.
