Heuristic Issue.....Period Lot size not working

Hi Gurus,

I am new to Heuristic, my requirment is monthly generation of PRs on the the basis of Planned delivery time.  For Eg. Planned delivery time is 120 days

Demand :-  1March - 100

                   1April -120

                   1 May - 120

Total Demand  - 340

Now wat Heruistic is doing, Since Planned delivery time is 120 days it cumulate all demand 340 and generate P.R on 25th May.  I dont want this result.  The result should be

25h May 100, 25th June 120, 25th July 120.

Am i missing some setting in master data or something else is left out.  For Information i maintaint the fiscal year variant in Storage bucket profile

Immediate respone is highly appreciated.

Hi AJ,

With PDT, SNP attempts to create the PR on requirement date i.e. demand date - PDT (in normal scenario without any past dues). If you intend to use period factor, the adjusted date should be greater than requirement date so that the PR will be created on adjusted date. Otherwise, requirement date will be considered.

For instance, consider weekly buckets (Sun - Sat) used in the data view with PDT as 120 days.

Weekly bucket under consideration: 6/23/2013 - 6/29/2013

Period Factor: 0.9 - PR will be generated on 6/28/2013.

Period Factor: 0.1 - PR will be generated on 6/26/2013 (expected to be generated on 6/24/2013)

No period factor: PR will be generated on 6/26/2013 (current date + PDT).
