Scheduling of products
I am rephrasing the planning scenario .Example a fruit drink making company.They pack mango,apple and pineapple fruit dinks in 200 ml and 500ml packs.
To minimize the setup time it is ideal to pack 200ml mango,apple and pinapple packs first and then switch to 500 ml packs.
The PIR is monthly .The problem is now how can the system club all the planned orders(i.e for all diff products) of 200 ml packs and 500ml packs respectively.
This can be handled in APO thru optimer , but how can this be handled thru MRP .
Any ideas will be most valuable.
Thanks & Regards
