When sourcing percentage meets max order quantity

When I set sourcing perentage and max order quantity and perform enterprise planning, I find the result is hard to understand.

Global settings.

1. Total demand, 1000
2. Sourcing percentage. S1, 80% (major supplier), S2, 20% (minor supplier)

Case 1. Request quantity is no more than max order quantity for both suppliers
Comment 1. Easy to understand

Supplier Max quantity Estimated result Actual result
S1 99999999 800 800
S2 99999999 200 200

Case 2. Request quantity is no more than max order quantity only for the minor supplier
Comment 2. Hard to understand

Supplier Max quantity Estimated result Actual result
S1 500 500 0
S2 99999999 500 1000

Case 3. Request quantity is no more than max order quantity only for non of the suppliers
Comment 3. Hard to understand

Supplier Max quantity Estimated result Actual result
S1 99999999 900 1000
S2 100 100 0

Case 4. Request quantity is no more than max order quantity only for the major supplier
Comment 4. Hard to understand

Supplier Max quantity Estimated result Actual result
S1 500 500/300 0
S2 100 100/100 100/100/100/100/100/100/100/100/100/100 (10 separate planning orders)

The result even differs with the explanation from system online help. Anyone who give me some analysis will be highly appreciated.

Gigaman, please stop posting your technical/functional questions in the General Discussion forum. There are better places for those!

Hi Gigaman,

I think that Baan doesn't consider the supplier at all when the maximum order quantity is exceeded and puts the whole quantity to the other supplier who doesn't have maximum order quantity restriction. This assumption may be applied to case 2 and case 3. For case 4, does the supplier code of S2 precede S1? I assume the priority of both the suppliers are the same. Is it so?

The functionality you want can be achieved using the 'supplier capacity', capacity tolerance etc. in the same session on the last form.

Regards,
srikarthy
