APO:Resource utilisation

Hi Experts

I am explaning you whole scenario. I have the demand of 2400 Tonne(Releasing from DP to SNP). I want to distribute this demand on 3 resources as a Resource1- 800, Resource2- 900, Resource3 - 700.For all the resources I am having different Production rates and their Shutdown/repair days.

I want to configre the above scenario in SNP and the bucket is at Annual Level.

Please guide us whether to use optimiser or to use the Quota system.

I would be highly grateful; for your inputs for my query.

With the combination of Resource Capacity( Say u have defined 14 Hrs as available in resource) and Rate what u define in PPM( in 1 hr u can produce 200 EA), will define how much the resource can product and optimizer will act accordingly.

If u have same product can be manufactured in 3 resources , then Rate and Cost of PPM will be the guiding factor for the Optimizer.

Good luck.
