connecting Transport lane when creating model PPDS
I wanted to share scenario .
I have 1 plant -
I have 4 resorces--a1,a2,a3,a4
in a1 resources-i have 3 material
in a2 resources-i have 2 material
in a3 resource- i have semifinished products
in a4 resources -i have raw material
For A1, & A2 i need to have same semifinished products and same raw materials.
When i am trying to connect from a4 -a3 , a3-a2, a3-a1 but i am not able to do that as i ahve only 1 location for it.
My question is how i need to connect this network for PPDS planning run.
in a4 -raw material and at a3 it will come that and convert into semifinised product , semifinished product is consumed at a2 and a1 and out put will be finished products.
Please let me know is it mandatory to connect the process and prepare PPM and run my finite planning run?
Thanks & Regards,
I think you need not create transportation lane within a location. They are required only for cross location planning. Without them, if you create PPMs they should be able to pick up the downstream products once they are available i.e, they can link to the other planned orders or production orders.
Hope this is helpful.
