APO PDS alternative modes used together

Hello,

I have the following scenario:

Workcenter A => produces Material X => 1 pc / hour

Workcenter B => produces material X => 2 pc / hour

When I create an production order of 150 pc, I want that the APO uses both resources A and B (at same time) to produce the material X, resulting:

Workcenter A => occupied 100 h => 100 pc

Workcenter B => occupied 100 h => 50 pc

If I create an activitie with 2 modes, the system will select ONLY one to produce the order? Even in optimizer ?

Thanks!

Best regards,

Mengue

    Hi Mengue,

    You can set 2 operations with parallel sequence in the routing.

      Hi Claire,

      Thanks for the answer.

      But I think that will not work, because I need to use the workcenters in the same operation (alternative wotkcenters) at same time.

      Best regards,

    Hi Leandro,

                       APO PDS alternative modes will not work for your requirement. You may want to explore pooled capacity. Create pooled capacity for combined work center("A+B) and assign the pooled capacity to one work center and use this work ceneter in routing.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
