We are working for Cable manufacturing firm and wish to use Capable-to-promise functionality of PP/DS. Presently we are using customized length based planning heuristics (which is customised form of SAP_PP_002) for creating planned orders and the PP planning procedure used is also customized length based (which is customized form of Planning in Planning run).
Please let us know how we can use Capable-to-promise in such a case so that the planner can get reliable delivery date/ time when creating a sales order. We understand using the CTP procedure, we can execute an ATP check in APO when creating the sales order for the required product and we can trigger production planning and detailed scheduling if the sufficient quantity of the product is not available.
Let us know if we need to do any other settings. Our finished product is configurable material with make-to-order (strategy group u2013 26) and semi-finished product strategy is planning with final assembly (strategy group u2013 40). Accordingly, check modes are 047 and 050 respectively.
