Modelling Capacity Restriction in F&R

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi, I am attempting to model the following scenario in F&R. However, I do not have the exact know-how of how to do it. Can someone please throw some light on the same.


My supply network has 2 vendors supplying to a DC & Store. Let's say one of my preferred vendors can only supply 500 units of a particular product (production quantity restriction).

Now, after having executed a forecast, I get an OP for the said product and vendor for quantity 1000 units.

How do I model this constraint so that the system only plans for a maximum of 500 units and the balance 500 units of requirement are automatically passed on to the other vendor or the DC, depending on the availability?

Hi GK, thanks for your response but my query still remains unanswered. I am looking at modelling the said scenario in F&R and not in the ERp system. I am re-iterating my problem here.

I wish to know if F&R does CONSTRAIN based planning- is there a way to tell the system that the vendor has only so much capacity and that anything planned in excess must be planned/ shifted to some other vendor?

This functionality of performing of kind ATP Check when performing the Source Of Supply determination and use a different vendor since the capacity of one of the vendor is restricted is not available in SAP F&R standard.

Since this capacity is dynamically calculated / checked by the available stock or production capacity also these stock data or capacity to be delivered by the vendor must exist in F&R and does not exist in standard.


Best Regards,
