PDS Period Factor 1 not considered in heuristics

Hi Experts,

Can you help me with our issue wherein the the generated planned orders in the heuristics doesn't seem to follow the Period factor of 1 in PDS.

All products in a certain location are affected. The end dates are falling on different days instead of the end of a period (weekly buckets). Calendar are open for 7days so the assumption is that the dates calculated should fall on sunday.

Can you help me understand what are missing here?

Thanks in advance for your help!

regards,

KP

    Hi Experts,

    Just an additional info. We have a macro which copies the production (planned) KF to auxillary KF then zero out the production (planned) KF. Afterwards, we copy the auxillay KF back to production (planned) KF.

    Do you know how this operation affects the changes the dates of the orders?

    Thanks!

    regards,

    KP

    • Hi KP,

      The object series key figure 9APPROD groups the planned orders based on the availability date (or order end date) in weekly buckets view. If you use daily buckets, the orders will be collected in each bucket based on the order end date as shown in the following screenshots (period factor not maintained in the example). If you use your custom macros to exchange data between 9APPROD and aux KF in the daily buckets view, only quantity will be exchanged for the same day.

      Weekly view:
