SNP Heuristics behaviour at Weekly Data View

Dear Experts,

Currently, we are running our SNP Heuristics at Monthly Data View and facing no issues. We get the expected heuristics plan based on the target days' supply, safety stock and demand, with respect to the location product master data.

Now, we plan to use a mix time buckets of Weekly (for the first 3 months say M0, M1 and M2) and Monthly (for M3 and onwards). Using this new data view, something is not right with the SNP Heuristics that it only shows/proposes 1 single plan. In other words, the proposal is only a single receipt on a certain time bucket which is happened to be the earliest available time bucket under Distribution Receipt (Planned) key figure, as if it summarizes all the demand across future time buckets. Our expectation, since the demand is also available across future time buckets, is that it will plan at least the same as Monthly Data View which is not just a single plan/receipt. I ran the same in the background and based on the log, the system only detected 1 Total Demand and hence only 1 plan proposal was generated. So no issue between foreground and background heuristics (the same results but still with 1 single plan).

Please let me know what else to look as I'm suspecting that this has something to do with the macros. I tried to create a Weekly Data View checking if the issue is because of the mix time buckets but I'm also getting the same result i.e. 1 single plan.

Thank you in advance for your feedback and advise.
