MRP heuristic (SCM-APO-PPS)

Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (SCM-APO-PPS)

Heuristic that can process products in the sequence of their low-level codes.

An MRP heuristic is a service heuristic that is based on the algorithm /SAPAPO/HEUR_MRP_PLANNING. The task of the MRP heuristic is to control the planning of selected products. The MRP heuristic therefore does not execute planning itself for a product, but calls up another heuristic, such as a procurement planning heuristic, for this purpose. The functions of an MRP heuristic include automatic bundling, parallel processing, and extended logging. These functions enable mass processing that has a positive influence on performance.
