Use of SNP Mode (D,A,W,H etc.) in Demand Planning

Hi Folks,

Can you please tell me the use of different SNP Modes settings for a Key Figure ? Whats the use of SNP Mode setting and are there any documents available for the same ?

In our project, we have used 'D' (DP Key Figure) as an SNP Mode setting but I cannot understand the excat use of it and how it is different for other settings ? Is the SNP Mode setting anyway linked to the Key Figure setting, Fixed versus Single Key Figure.

Thanks In Anticipation.

You use the SNP mode in the supply and demand propagation planning method of Supply Network Planning (SNP), to specify whether you want the constraints to be considered as hard constraints or soft constraints. For example, you specify for a capacity constraint whether the existing capacity is a fixed upper limit (hard constraint) or whether it is possible to violate this limit and thus overload resources (soft constraint).
