Master planning for site coverage, mandatory warehouse

This topic describes how an item that has the site as coverage dimension is planned. Warehouse is a mandatory dimension.

This master planning scenario involves the following conditions:

  • The site dimension is set to mandatory and must be entered on the demand transaction. This setting can't be modified.
  • The warehouse dimension is set to mandatory and must be entered on the demand transaction.
  • The site dimension is set for coverage planning. Other dimensions may be set for coverage planning also. However, they are not affected by the multisite functionality.
  • The warehouse dimension is not set for coverage planning. Therefore, supply and demand are aggregated by site and, perhaps, other coverage-planned dimensions also.

The following graphic illustrates how master planning proceeds. The parameters that are referred to in the graphic, and their locations, are as follows:

  • Item coverage is defined for the item. Click Product information management > Products> Released products. Select the item, and then click Plan > Item coverage.
  • Refill relations are defined for the warehouse. Click Inventory management > Setup > Inventory breakdown > Warehouses. On the Master planning tab, see the Main warehouse field group.
  • The default order type is set to Production, Purchase order, or Kanban. Click Product information management > Products> Released products. Select the item, and then click Plan > Default order settings. In the Default order settings form, see the Default order type.
