SNP heuristic taking in account shutdown periods

Hello all,

We would like to "block out" resources when there are plant shutdowns for things like statutory plant maintenance inspections.

We can block out the time on the resource in R/3 which is immediately ciffed to APO. However, when we run SNP Heuristic planned orders are created on the week which has been blocked out. We have discovered that we can run capacity levelling to "move" these orders and leaves the blocked out time with no planned orders. However, this capacity levels everything which is not quite what we want.

I suppose my question is what is the process in this case. Does it have to be Heuristic --> Capacity Level or is there some way of just stopping planned orders being generated on the time the resource is not available when the Heuristic is run ?

Looking forward to your feedback.
