pds priority



I have demand at a customer location C1 and it is conneced to Two manufacturing locations namely P1 and P2.

No INBLUND quota is maintained at customer location from P1 and P2 and no Tlane priorities are maintained in theTlanes from P1 >C1 and also from P2 ->C1.

But I see that the PDS priorities are maintained differently for the Product at P1 and P2 Plants.

Will the PDS priority influece the plant to which the demand can propogate from the cutomer location.

The demand has actually got propagated to plant P2 and I see that the PDS priority as 0 in P2 and PDS priority as 1 in P1.

Kindly suggest if the PDS priorityis the deciding facor in this case or am I missing something?

    Hi Sriram,

    You are right in saying that PDS priority would define the selection of the plant in this case. Considering there is no stock in hand at both P1 and P2 and system tries for production. Had there been stocks in hand at P1 and P2, system would have chosen randomly between P1 and P2. T lane priorities, if maintained, would define basically the supplying plant. In case even the PDS priorities are same, system would go to find the location priority defined for P1 and P2.

    The priorities are read for heuristics and CTM runs. For optimiser run, everything is governed by ONLY cost parameters.

    Hi Sriman,

    I beg to differ with Mr Manotosh.

    During the demand propagation procurement alternatives are evaluated only based on Quotas / Lane priorites/ trnasportation costs/closest source etc... PDS will not be part of procurement alternative evaluation during location heuristic at DC because the source of supply (PDS/PPM) at the sources will not be determined/exploded in this step.

    Once the source is determined Quotas / Lane priorites/ transportation costs/closest source (ability to meet demand earlier) etc... then only when you run location heuristic at the determained source the PDS/PPM determination takes place again based on quota /priorities etc...

    Other experts please correct me if I am wrong...
