This master scheduling scenario involves the following conditions:

  • The multisite functionality is activated. Therefore, the site dimension is mandatory and must be entered on the demand transaction.

  • The warehouse dimension is not set to mandatory. The warehouse may be known, but it is not used in the master scheduling calculation.

  • The site dimension is set for coverage planning. Other dimensions may be set for coverage planning also. However, they are not affected by the multisite functionality.

  • The warehouse dimension is not set for coverage planning. Therefore, supply and demand are aggregated by site (and perhaps other coverage-planned dimensions also).

The following graphic illustrates how the master scheduling proceeds. The parameters that are referred to in the graphic, and their locations, are as follows:
