Why This Book is Critical for Companies Looking to Constrain the Supply and Production Plan Most companies want to constrain their production and supply planning. However, there is no other book that really focuses, at a detailed level, on these topics and on how constrained supply and production planning work together. While there are a number of consultants who can tell you how constraints will work in very specific ways with supply planning or within the production planning application, understanding--at the deepest level--how the constraints integrate across the two applications is rare.

From the Inside Flap:

Understanding How Constrained Supply and Production Planning WorksConstraint-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.
A Book Based in RealityThe book provides many examples from real life project experiences, the emphasis being on the reality of APO projects.Interconnected to Web InformationIn order the keep the book at a manageable and easily readable length, the book also provides numerous links out to the SCM Focus site, where supporting articles allow readers to get into more detail on topics that interest them.
