Supply Plan Algorithm Execution Error
I was trying to execute supply plan heuristics algorithm, on a custom scenario when the system returned the following issues:
1) Invalid production source for location CWH2, product PRD01: the source ID PL01_PRD01 is already used for another location CWH1 and product %5
2) Invalid production source for location CWH2, product PRD01: the source ID PL01_PRD01 is already used for another location CWH1 and product %5
All the related MDTs and and KFs has been successfully uploaded into the system.
The scenario to be implemented is:
CWH1 and CWH2 are Warehouses fed by Plants PL01 and PL02.
PRD01 is the Finished Product.
Excerpt from MDT SourceProduction is depicted in the attached screenshot:
The system executes well when all the CWH are sourced from a single plant but throws errors (mentioned above) when more than one plants are used to source more than one Warehouse or DCs. Unable to solve this problem.
Need some help,

Your production source master data looks ambiguous. If you want finished goods PRD01 to be produced at plants PL01 and PL02 then you should not define locations CWH1 and CWH2 in source production master data.
I assume you are using single level BOM and you want to ship finished product PRD01 from both plants to both DCs depending on your transport ratio which you have defined in location source master data. In this case production of finished product PRD01 should occur at plants PL01 and PL02 using single source ID and your master data should look like-
