I have a supply network where multiple locations are supplied with 8 products from a DC. We are using LOTSIZEPOLICY = 5. This means a location has a shipment planned every X weeks for a given product. However, since demand and initialinventory are different for each product in each location, this results in multiple shipments of individual products.
Is there a way to have the Time-Series-Based Supply Planning Heuristic plan these shipments on a single week? Manually adjusting values for each location is unfeasible, since there are nearly 130 locations, each receiving 8 products.
We are working with SAP IBP SOP 2111.
Looking forward to your comments!
