Active ingredient management allows you to plan physical movements of items that you measure in alternative units, such as flavor strength. This allows you to optimize how much product you plan for to meet requirements. However, Advanced Planning and Optimization does not offer standard functionality for using active ingredient management. Find out about a workaround you can implement that allows you to take advantage of active ingredient management.
Active ingredient management is also known as batch-specific units of measure. In process industries, you use active ingredient management for planning in R/3 to take into account that the potency or concentration of the products produced often varies from batch to batch. However, to use this concept in Advanced Planning and Optimization, you need to implement a special workaround.
