Is network heuristics a multi level heuristics?

Hi Experts,

I have a very basic question-

1. Is network heuristics a multilevel heuristics?

2. Do we need to run LLC before running network heuristics?

Regards

    Hi,

    To put it another way,

    1. Multilevel heuristic is a Network heuristic in which BOM components are also taken into account during planning.

    2. Use the LLC Function to determine the low level codes of loc prod before running Heuristic based planning.

    Thanks,

    Hi

    Regarding your first question. Network heuristic and Multilevel Heuristic servers different purposes.

    In the network heuristic the system plans the specified products at all locations of the supply chain model where these products are assigned. The multilevel heuristic is a also kind of network heuristic but it takes into account BOM components for specified product.

    Hence Network Heuristic can be say as different than multilevel heuristic. Please find the more information below.

    Regarding your second questions

    .

    The planning sequence is always driven the LLC of the location products in heuristic runs.. The LLC specifies the bill of material (BOM) level and supply chain location at which a location product is situated Hence it is always advisable to execute the LLC before running Heuristic thus ensuring that demands are fulfilled correctly

    Please find the more information below.

    I hope the above information is able to answer your doubts.

    Thanks
