Deployment: excess stock

Hi Experts,

We have a deployment process, were one Source location is deploying to 1 destination location. The destination location sends its demand to source location through Pur. Req.

Currently we are using Distribution rule "X- Push by Demand", fair share rule "blank" and Push Depl. Hor = 999. Whenever demand is more than supply, deployment is distributing the supply.

Now the requirement is: when there is EXCESS stock at source location that excess stock should also be COMPLETELY DISTRIBUTED.

I do not wish to change my safety stock at destination plant and are using the deployment heuristic, the Deployment horizon = 999.

Please let me know, how can I map the above new requirement.

Thanks & Regards

    Hi Andrew

    Did you tried using the ditribution rule Q- Push by quota arrangment ? You would need to maintain an outbound quota arrangament of 100 % at the source location. I belive this should deploy the excess stock.
