Master planning for site and warehouse coverage, warehouse not mandatory

This topic describes how an item that has site and warehouse as coverage dimensions is planned. The warehouse dimension is not mandatory.

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 not set to mandatory. The warehouse may be known, but it is not used in the master planning calculation.
  • The site and warehouse dimensions are set for coverage planning. Other dimensions may be set for coverage planning also. However, they are not affected by the multisite functionality.

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

  • The warehouse is set to Manual. Click Inventory management > Setup > Inventory breakdown > Warehouses. On the Master planning FastTab, see the Manual field.
  • Item coverage is defined for the item. Click Product information management > Products> Released products. Select the item, and then, on the Action pane, on the Plan tab, click Item coverage.
  • Refill relations are defined for the warehouse. Click Inventory management > Setup > Inventory breakdown > Warehouses. On the Master planning FastTab, 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, on the Action pane, on the Plan tab, click Default order settings. In the Default order settings form, see the Default order type.
