Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) heuristics and optimizer support constraint-based shop floor production sequencing. Through implementation of the right components, PP/DS helps you automate the production planning process to avoid customer delays or increased setup costs and time.
Key Concept
You can use Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) in SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization for material requirements planning, finite scheduling of the production plan, and production sequence optimization. PP/DS allows you to plan your production and procurement of raw materials to minimize customer delay. This in turn optimizes your shop floor resources.
