generate snp base on date

Dear SAP Expert,

My expectation is after running snp Heuristic, the system generate snp order base on period of planning.

for instance, location 1000 has demand of 500 PCs on 05/05/2012 and location 2000 has demand of 700 PCs on 07/05/2012. I set snp horiszion is 1 month.

I want the system generate snp orders (Purchase Requisitions) with the following information:

   + Order number: 10032( for example)

   + Quantity:         1200 PCs


I mean that the system only generate one Order number for a plan within time of snp horizion.

Please help us how to configure the system to get my expectation.

thanks so much

    SNP production/stock transfer horizon (frozen zone for SNP) will not be considered for planning. The system plans only after this window. If there is a shortfall of stock on hand compared to target stock level, SNP planning algorithm triggers a proposal.

    If you are talking about planning horizon, then your time bucket profile associated with the data view (/SAPAPO/SDP8B) needs to be defined for one month with appropriate periodicity i.e. either daily or weekly buckets.

    If you want to group demand for certain number periods, then consider defining periodic lot size (/SAPAPO/MAT1 - Lot Size tab). SNP heuristics will group the demands (as you expected) and try to create one order.
