A very basic question, if you guys can pleas advice me on this:

Can you tell me whats the recommended length of below horizons, or factors to define these horizons:

PPDS Horizon

SNP production horizon

Extended horizon

Deployment horizon

Pull Horizon

Push Horizon

Stock Transfer Horizon

Is there a relation between PPDS horizon and Deployment horizon. Even in case it makes logical sense please let me know the factors to define them to see the whole picture

Thanks in advance

    Hi Rahul,

    Most of these depend on the business requirement.

    I will try to highlight their importance and their logical linkages....

    PPDS Horizon - the horizon in which you do your detailed planning, should be greater than or equal to SNP production horizon - typically 2 weeks to 1 month (but depends on the production cycle time, lead time to accomodate changes etc...)

    SNP production horizon - Horizon beyond which SNP can create planned orders - should be less than or equal to ppds horizon

    Extended horizon - similar to SNP prod horizon, but manual orders can be created in this horizon, one of the two or both can be used

    Deployment horizon - this is what you maintain in SNP02 transaction this should be less than or equal to pull horizon

    Pull Horizon - Greater than or equal to the deployment horizon (maintained at source location)

    Push Horizon - period within which you want to consider your receipts (maintained at source location)

    Stock Transfer Horizon - period within which you donot want stock transfer to be created (maintained at destination).

    and there is no relation between deployment horizon and PPDS horizon.
