Integration between SNP and PP/DS

Dear Expert,

After Running SNP optimizer ,  APO create orders in daily basis as result from finite capacity

During the PP/DS Run apo delete all this orders and create one order to cover the demand

My Issue is :

If you use optimizer to make cross finite planning to consider and make finite capacity for production or transportation , it's working fine no problem but when you run PP/DS he not respect all what you did in SNP

what's the propose from doing all this in snp optimizer ??

Please I need clarification for this concept

    Hi Rami,

    That's the standard behavior. Within the production horizon, PP/DS has priority over SNP i.e. it deletes the existing orders (non-fixed) and recreate new ones.

    If you want to retain your SNP orders, you need to convert them to PP/DS orders (t.code /sapapo/rrp_snp2ppds) and fix them before executing PP/DS run.

    • Dear Rajesh,

      Thank you for taking time to response to my issue

      Please suggest what should I do If I need to consider the transportation capacity by optimizer and as you know PP/DS  not support the transportation capacity , and weekly lot size by PP/DS

      so I need to run both

      If I convert the the SNP order and fix the orders so I will not be able to plan in weekly lot size in PP/DS

      Please advise
