Constraint-based planning generates something that is appealing to all manufacturers: a feasible supply and production plan. However, constraint-based planning software was first implemented over twenty years ago, and yet few companies have mastered constraint-based planning. This book provides the background information, detailed explanations, step-by-step examples, and real-life scenarios to assist a company in becoming proficient at constraint-based planning, along with valuable information about what SAP APO can do for supply and production planning in reality, rather than just in theory. Here you will learn about resources-the mechanism for constraining the plan in APO and for determining the feasibility of the plan-and how constrained supply and production planning work together (and how they don't). In addition, this book talks about constraint-based planning at the supplier level: can a vendor's production be capacity-constrained? By reading this book, you will learn: The different resources available in APO, how production resources differ from supply planning resources, and the role resources and other important constraints play in constraint-based planning. How constraints integrate across the supply planning and production planning applications. The areas of disconnect between supply and production planning applications, and between SNP and PP/DS in particular. The difference between unconstrained (or infinite) planning and constraint-based planning. The benefits of constraint-based planning and how it differs from capacity leveling. Various types of demand, and how backwards and forwards scheduling work. The benefits of using production constraints in the supply planning system, and how SNP and PP/DS can be synchronized to produce the desired output. The methods that can do constraint-based planning in SNP and PP/DS-heuristics, CTM, and optimization-and how to configure these methods. The difference between hard and soft constraints, and how to plan using multiple constraints.

Optimization is a serious issue, touching many aspects of our life and activity. But it has not yet been completely absorbed in our culture. In this book the authors point out how relatively young even the word “model” is. On top of that, the concept is rather elusive. How to deal with a technology that ?nds applicationsinthingsasdi?erentaslogistics,robotics,circuitlayout,?nancial deals and tra?c control? Although, during the last decades, we made signi?cant progress, the broad public remained largely unaware of that. The days of John von Neumann, with his vast halls full of people frantically working mechanical calculators are long gone. Things that looked completely impossible in my youth, like solving mixed integer problems are routine by now. All that was not just achieved by ever faster and cheaper computers, but also by serious progress in mathematics. But even in a world that more and more understands that it cannot a?ord to waste resources, optimization remains to a large extent unknown. R It is quite logical and also fortunate that SAP , the leading supplier of enterprise management systems has embedded an optimizer in his software. The authors have very carefully investigated the capabilities and the limits of APO. Remember that optimization is still a work in progress. We do not have the tool that does everything for everybody.

Production planning in fresh food industries is a challenging task. Although modern Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) systems could provide significant support, APS implementation numbers in these industries remain low. Therefore, based on an in-depth analysis of three sample fresh food industries (dairy, fresh and processed meat), the author evaluates what APS systems should offer in order to effectively support production planning and how the leading systems currently handle the most distinguishing characteristic of fresh food industries, the short product shelf life. Starting from the identified weaknesses, customized software solutions for each of the sample industries are proposed that allow to optimize the production of fresh foods with respect to shelf life. The book thereby offers valuable insights not only to researchers but also to software providers of APS systems and professionals from fresh food industries.
