How are SNP order dates decided?

Hi All,

Where do we maintain the settings to tell SNP to generate orders(PRs/STRs/Planned orders) at the begining of the period OR at the end of the period OR in the mid of the period?

Regards

    Hi,

    While maintaining Transaportation Lanes (Transaction: /SAPAPO/SCC_TL1 ), in the u201CMeans of Transportu201D detail screen, you have u201CPeriod Factoru201D field . This Period Factor field is used for Calculating the Availability Date/Time (Factor used by the system to calculate the availability date/time of a receipt element within a time period (bucket) ).

    Its use is as below:

    The system determines the exact availability date/time of the receipt elements within a period, by adding a time interval (that it gets by multiplying the period factor with the period length) to the start time of the period. You can enter a factor between 0 and 1, where 0 is the start of the period, 0.5 the middle, and 1 the end of t

    he period. When calculating the availability date/time, the system takes into consideration all weekdays, meaning that it does not take into consideration any days that have been defined as non-workdays in the calendars.

    The following applications can take the period factor into account:

    u2022 Heuristic in Supply Network Planning (SNP)

    The SNP optimizer does not consider any period factor.

    u2022 Period lot-sizing procedure in Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS)

    There is one more field u201CBucket Offsetu201D and this is also used alon with the above field value, if required.

    I hope this gives you insight.

    Regards

    Datta
