Sequence campaign planning in SNP
Can we do sequence campaign planning in SNP.
The scenario is of 3 products and which is produced from 3 different resources. I want to do sequence in week wise for one month ( For e.g. frst week system will come out with frst product and in second week the system will come out with other one.)
Hope u understand the scenario. Please give some inputs for my above query.

This scenario will not fit into campaign planning .
"You mainly use production campaigns in companies in the process industries that manufacture their products on production lines. These production lines must be set up or cleaned between the processing of different production charges or before downtimes. The products manufactured must often not only be stored finally but also temporarily, for example, if they are to be consumed by a subsequent manufacturing level. These setup or clean-out processes as well as the storage may be very cost-intensive.
The main aim of campaign planning is to weigh up setup costs and storage costs. Frequent changes of the production line, for example, may help to reduce storage costs but at the same time lead to increased setup costs. If, on the other hand, the production line is set up as seldom as possible, this may reduce the setup costs but at the same time increase storage costs.
You can use the campaign planning functions to combine orders manufacturing the same or similar products into production campaigns to reduce setup and storage costs in particular.
You can decide whether you want to use campaign optimization to plan campaigns or campaign heuristics. "
