RE: How to Setup Bill of Distribution / Network Setup

How do you setup this example for Demand Planning purposes?
For Example: One Item Code,  Location A and Location B gets their supply via transfer from Location C.  Currently do not have Adv Location enabled, and it seems only one Distribution Network per Item can be selected so i can say point the item to Bill of Distribution Location A to C  but not Location B to C
Would like Demand Planning to recommend transfers from Location A to C as well as Location B to C so that Location C knows how much to make.
Is it possible to set this up? Do you need to activate Advanced Locations in order to point distribution network by location?

Yes, only one Distribution Network per Item can be selected, but for one Distribution Network, you can set more than one Bill of Distribution.

For you example

One Item Code: XXXX – Set one Distribution Network DN1

  • Location A gets it’s supply via transfer from Location C – Set Bill of Distribution  BOD1 from C to destination location A
  • Location B gets it’s supply via transfer from Location D – Set BOD2
  • Location E gets it’s supply via transfer from Location B (who initially got it via transfer from Location D) – Set BOD3

Then you can assign BOD1 BOD2 BOD3 to DN1.

Best luck.
