Short, medium and long term planning in SNP

Hi,

can somebody explain me what Short, medium and long term planning mean in SNP?

Lets, say I have this scenario:

If I have a product with SNP horizon of 35 days, which means that the product is planned in SNP only after 35 days from today. Only PPDs deals with orders in these 35 days.

I have a 3 planning books

short term with 30 days from today

medium term with 7 months from today and

long term with 2 years from today.

When I say short, medium and long term planning in SNP what exactly happens in these ?? What do users usually do in these books?

SNP horizon is 35 days and the short term book is 30 days long, in which SNP does nothing. What's the use of this book?

Thanks.

Nothing much from a technical stand point.

What do users usually do in these books?

Check the Time Bucket Profile for the different books. The short Term Book will be in days, the mid term in weeks and the long term in months/quarters etc. The different books allows users to see the keyfigures in different time-based aggregate level.

But if Heuristic is executed then behaviour will be different. Remember SNP Location Heuristic run uses the bucket of the data view to compute the Net Requirement and then try creating Receipts in each bucket within the time horizon of the data view using suitable master data. So if you run Location Heuristic in the short Term (daily) view then you will have many receipts one per day most likely. If you run in mid-term Weekly view then there are less number of receipts one receipt per week till 7 months. likewise for the long term view.

SNP horizon is 35 days and the short term book is 30 days long, in which SNP does nothing. What's the use of this book?

Maybe just to see the data. Location Heuristic run will not generate any new receipt.

Thanks,

Somnath
