Hi apo gurus
I have a question. I have one Distribution Channel and 2 plantsX and Y.Both 2 plants are far away from D.C.I have no stock in DC. so it trigger Material requirement for stock transfer from DC to plants. X plant has no stock availabilty, but capacity is available. Y plant has stock , but 2cases Here one is partial quantiy available, 2 is full quatity available
Now my question is ,from which plant, stock is transferred to D.C .
1) would X plant will trigger production because of capcity availability
2) Y plant will suply partial quantity and after that it will trigger production order for Remaining Quantity.
3) Y plant will supply all the quantiy as per case 2
Please clarify my doubt
As alluded by the other reply, the outcome is dependent on the kind of solver you are using. It also depends on what you want to see the outcome as. CTM is a rule based engine and can very well accomodate these sourcing priorities. Product priorities are used in Cap leveling, however not directly per se in Heuristic and Optimizer. I would assume that you may see a little random behaviour for Heuristic. You can influence the solver to behave the way you want using appropriate rules.
