Too many characteristic combinations in planning layout

Hi,

I have a planning layout, which depends on the master data (setting of 'All Possible Characteristic Combinations'). If I open the layout there are an error message, that too many combinations are possible. A restriction in planning level or package is not possible. I need all the possible combinations.

Is there a way to manage this overdimensional data set?

Thanks in advance

Thorsten

    hi,

    maybe it is because you have too many chars in header?

    In header you should have unique values and in leading columns you can define as much chars as you want to.

    Hi,

    I have another case, where no chas relationship is possible.

    There are 4 chas with 24, 300, 53 and 12 possible values.

    24x300x53x12 = 4.579.200 combinations.

    I think the limit is 500.000 combinations in a layout.

    Is there a possibility to increase this limit?

    Best regards

      hi,

      I do not know much about layouts limitations,

      but maybe you can do a few layouts. You have wrote that one of your chars have 12 values.

      Maybe you can create 12 layouts restricting this char to single value in each layout?

      Regards,

      Andrzej

    Hi,

    thank you for your reply.

    You are right, there are too many chas in header. Additionally I created new chas ralationships. Now it works.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    thanks for replying.

    The 12 are the months of a year. I tried to restrict the 300. The biggest value is 50 then. That are about 700.000 combinations. Again too many.

    If you do not know much about limitation, I must talk to the responsible department. They will have to restrict the values.

    Thanks for your help!!!

    Hi Alberto,

    we have 3 characteristics and another characteristic, the months. The business department need the possibility to plan every characteristic combination. They restrict the values with variables in the layout. But this is too late for the characteristic combination check.

    Best regards
