Heuristics with Net change planning

Hi All,

I understand that when we click the check box 'Net change planning' in heuristics program- /SAPAPO/RSNPDRP1, the pre requisite is that SNP: Change planning active indicator in the planning version also needs to be set.

In my case, I have two situations-

1. Net change planning is set in heuristics program, SNP: Change planning active indicator in the planning version is not set- Heuristics log says "0 product locations processed"

2. In another variant, Net change planning is set in heuristics program, SNP: Change planning active indicator in the planning version is not set- Heuristics log says "20 product locations processed". However, I still have product locations where heuristics have not planned

Case 1 is understood as per the understanding. For case 2, why heuristics is picking some of the location products while skipping some other?

Waiting for your inputs.

Regards

Manotosh

    Hi,

    If you wish to run net change planning, select Net Change Planning. This means that the heuristic run

    plans only those location products for which a planning file entry has been set. The system sets this

    planning file entry if a planning-relevant change has been made to the location product since the last

    heuristic run; for instance, if the demand situation of the location product has changed.

    Net change planning can be performed only if you set the SNP: Change Planning Active indicator

    beforehand in the planning version. The active planning version is the only version to support net

    change planning

    Also request you run the low level code determination before running the heuristics.

    Thanks,

      Hi All,

      Thank you so much for your valuable inputs.

      I checked again /sapapo/mvm and found that SNP:Change planning active indicator was set. Hence with this and 'Net change planning' active, system was picking only those product locations which has a planning file entry. Hence the results were as expected.

      Closing the thread now.
