Status Indicator for Available Resource Capacity (New)


Before now in the optimization-based planning method of Supply Network Planning (SNP), you could define only two available capacity variants of a resource: A normal available capacity and a maximum available capacity. The SNP optimizer calculated costs (that you could define for a capacity variant) for using the maximum capacity.

As of SAP APO 4.0, you can define multiple capacity variants for a resource and use a status indicator to label them as minimum, normal, and maximum available capacity. You can define costs for falling below the minimum or for using the normal or maximum capacity in the quantity and rate definition or the capacity profile of the resource. The SNP optimizer takes these costs into account during planning. However, the minimum capacity and costs that you defined for a capacity variant with a Normal Capacity status are only taken into account for production resources by the SNP optimizer.

You define the status indicator globally for all resources to which the capacity variant is assigned. To do this, go to the initial screen of the resource and choose Current Settings -> Capacity Variants. The default value is maximum capacity (empty field). This ensures compatibility with earlier releases. If you have given the same status for multiple capacity variants, the system uses the variant with the lowest number.

New key figure for minimum available capacity in interactive planning

In addition to the existing key figures for normal and maximum available capacity, the capacity view in interactive Supply Network Planning now also contains a minimum available capacity key figure.
