Goal

On : 12.1.2 version, Constrained planning

1) We are running ASCP capacity constraints. So it include supplier constraint (attach image where is configured the supplier constraint, where you are going to see the capacity is defined by item, in this case MCEL004, attach image)
2) But the issue is the capacity supplier constraint by item, We need the capacity would be by supplier, because the supplier can deliver a mix for many items, Example:

The supplier tell me, monthly I can send you 500,000 Kg for cellulose, So I can make a mix for many celluloses, with the only condition, the sum doesn’t exceed the 500,000 kg

SO I can make an order with a mix for celluloses but the total must not exceed the 500,000: example:

Cellulose1 need=300,000
Cellulose2 need=0
Cellulose3 need=100,000
Cellulose4 need=100,000
Cellulose5 need=0

Total= 500,000

But in other week/mont: we can make another kind of purchase order/mix:

Cellulose1 need=100,000
Cellulose2 need=100,000
Cellulose3 need=100,000
Cellulose4 need=0
Cellulose5 need=200,000

Total= 500,000

…And in other week/mont: we can make another kind of purchase order/mix:

Cellulose1 need=0,
Cellulose2 need=150,000
Cellulose3 need=150,000
Cellulose4 need=150,000
Cellulose5 need=0

Total= 500,000

Question:
===========

Does the ASCP Constrained planned be defined as Supplier capacity constrained rather than constrained by item?
