I have customer demand & cross plant demand for the same material. With Supply OPT, I want to be able to prioritize all my A & B customers ahead of the Cross-plant demand, followed by Customers of type C (we run segmentation).. We’ve non-delivery cost rates for customer demand & independent demand that could be used, but what about cross plant demand ? Like Dep Loc Dem or outbound loc demand. I don’t see anything for it. Would I use the IPU* KF's for this purpose?
Example: (per week)
Prod A, Cust A & B, Demand - 100pc
Prod A, Cross-plant demand (from a different Sub-network plant) - 100pc
Prod A, Cust C, Demand - 100 pc
Available capacity = 200 pc
I want to be able to give Cust A & B their 100pc, followed by the Cross-plant demand - 100 pc
component demands of not selected productions are currently treated pseudo-hard. I.e. they are prioritized over your A & B customers.
We received this requirement of a different prioritization for component demands also from other customers and are thinking on solution options, but I can't give you a timeline on this.
Currently you have only a modelling option:
You need to separate your subnetworks via transport sources (e.g. via additional non-storable dummy locations for your components). For the transport demands of not selected subnetworks you can then use key figure IPUNONDELIVERYCOSTRATE on planning level Product – Ship-To Location.
