OTM Planning (Order Bundling Logic) does not maximize the utilization based on the ERU (Equipment Reference Unit).
ORDER_01 (ERU count: 0.56)
ORDER_02 (ERU count: 3)
ORDER_03 (ERU count: 2)
ORDER_04 (ERU count: 2.09)
ORDER_05 (ERU count: 27.17)
- Planning Parameters:
CHECK EQUIPMENT CAPACITY IN REFERENCE UNITS = TRUE
PERFORM ORDER BUNDLE SPLITTING USING CONTAINER OPT = true
WEIGHT AND VOLUME METRIC = false
MAXIMUM VOLUME PER BUNDLE = 1,000,000.00 CUMTR
MAXIMUM WEIGHT PER BUNDLE = 1,000,000.00 KG
- ERU capacity constraint on the Equipment Group is 33.
- Planning result:
ORDER_01 524.29 0.7 0.56 Shipment-1
ORDER_02 695.84 2.17 3 Shipment-1
ORDER_03 1304.54 3.22 2 Shipment-1
ORDER_04 6741.92 38.75 27.17 Shipment-1
ORDER_05 866.96 1.86 2.09 Shipment-2
This is nearly optimal solution, notice the total ERU count for shipment-1 is (32.73) is almost at full 33 ERU capacity.
However, this is still not optimal since the order ORDER_03 (2 ERU) alone should have been in a different bundle and then planned to Shipment-2.
