Sales and Operations Planning (SOP)

In SOP it is possible to simulate the dispatch of planned requirements in order to review feasibility (CTP). The result will show whether the planned product mix can be realistically produced given the available capacities. Further requirements can be included as long as there is sufficient capacity. However if this is no longer possible then there are several potential methods to influence this fact:

When using data from the fine planning model the statements and simulations are reliable there is no discontinuity between this and the fine planning model. The duration of orders, the change-over from predecessor to successor products, normal quote quantities or minimum batch sizes have already been taken into account.
