Help to Configure Setup Matrix in APO Optimization

Former Member

Hi all,

we run our SNP in weekly buckets and we are trying to make the optimizer block productions of the same package sizes using Setup Matrix.

We have set Setup Groups in /SAPAPO/CDPSC6 and the Setup Transitions in /SAPAPO/CDPSC7 (all possible combinations), and a Z Table that is the source for Setup ID for each product-location.

Also, assigned the Setup Matrix to the resource (production line) and changed the BADI to populated Setup ID field (from Z Table, which are being correctly assigned as per the optimizer input log, pic below)

Z table:

We are using PPMs to create production orders.

In the optimizer input log, we can see the setup time but not the setup costs, any idea why?

The setup matrix also appears assigned to the resource in input log, as we can see:

But it is not grouping the orders of the same package size as expected, to be honest, nothing is different (comparing to the status before setting up the setup matrix).

Any ideas of what we are doing wrong? If more info is necessary, please let me know.

Hello Pedro,

Have you specified the setup matrix in the master data of a single-mixed resource or a bucket resource on the Time-Cont. Capacity tab page ? Other resource types are not supported.

  • Note that the SNP optimizer considers standard setup transitions only. In other words, it does not consider exception setup transitions. For more information, see SAP Library at published on SAP site under Start of the navigation path SAP Business Suite Next navigation step SAP Supply Chain Management Next navigation step SAP SCM 7.0 Next navigation step SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization (SAP APO) Next navigation step Master Data Next navigation step Application-Specific Master Data Next navigation step Master Data for Production Planning Next navigation step Setup Matrix End of the navigation path.
