This master scheduling scenario involves the following conditions:
The site dimension is set to mandatory and must be entered on the demand transaction.
The warehouse dimension is not set to mandatory. The warehouse may be known, but it is not used in the master scheduling calculation.
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 the master scheduling 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 > Common > Released products. Click Grid View or press CTRL+SHIFT+G to view all items. 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 > Common > Released products. Click Grid View or press CTRL+SHIFT+G to view all items. Select the item, and then click Plan > Default order settings. In the Default order settings form, see the Default order type field.
