You can use the Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PP/DS) optimizer in SAP Advanced Planning & Optimization for finite scheduling of production resources to avoid capacity overload and at the same time optimize the production sequence. Finite scheduling means there is no capacity overload and optimized sequence means there is minimal difficulty to changeover with respect to the due date. You can design the setup matrix — the prerequisite master data for PP/DS optimization — with a step-by-step approach by analyzing the product mix with a hierarchy. With that analysis, it is easier to translate scheduling rules into parameters the system understands with minimum ongoing master data maintenance.
