Multiple Strategy Grps for Spike Mgmt

Folks,

Have a requirement where there is a need to manage specially certain Sales Orders that come in as a "Large Hit". We dont want them to consume the regular Stocks & PIR's. These shud be treated more like MTO Orders.

To that end I was thinking of creating a Z* strgy which will have Plng Strgy 40 as the main & 20 as the 2ndary strgy. So, when a large hit Order comes in, by switching the Item cat/Sched Line on the Sales Ord, the Reqt Type for the Strgy 20 can be called there by not letting the order consume out the PIR's.

Have 2 qns: 1 is there a better way to handle this & 2: How can I make Sales Ord not consume PIR's for a Spike order?

Any ideas?

Cheers

    Hi,

    I believe you're on the right track, as the consumption of PIR is dependent on the rqmt class, so go for a combination, where one meets your normal sales cycle i.e. stg grp - 40 & another for your spike orders i.e. stg grp - 20.

    As with all things, do a test in your sandbox & adopt the same if it meets your reqmt.

    Regards,

      Hi,

      Check the reqmt type of the PIR (for 40 it should be VSF) & in the schedule line of SO (it should be KSV). With 40 it must be normal consumption unless there is any changes done.

      Check consumption parameters in MRP-3 view as well.
