Use of 'max lateness' in PP/DS pegging

94 Views

I am using the 'maximum allowed lateness' parameter on the APO product master, with APO V5.1.

Suppose lateness = 200 hours, and I have a fixed planned order of 10,000 available 1 week after a demand of 1000, then I see via the product view that there is pegging between the demand and the order, as expected. But if I then run the product heuristic, a new planned order of 1000 is still created 'in time' to meet the demand.

If however I set the 'alert threshold for lateness' also to be 200 hours, then when I run the product heuristic there is now no new planned order created 'in time', and I just see the fixed planned order pegged to the demand.

Is this expected behaviour?

Thanks for any advice on this...
