consolidated PID`s via APO (sales and operation planning)
can anybody explain the the following query?
what are system configurations required to get consolidated data of planned independent requirements from different plants to carry out MRP at centralised location (may be sitting at one plant)? Assume that, person who is carrying out MRP is having all plants access. i heard that, it is possible through APO.
suppose in a company,we had a different manufacturing plants at different locations.simillarly, we have different sales divisions at different locations.sales people are having a requirements from south,north,east,west. how to pass on the consolidated data of sales requirements to the system to the different plants.so that production planner can do ideal planning to cater sales requirements.
