SAP APO – Production Planning & Detailed scheduling

Production Planning (PP)

Create proposals for in-house production or external purchasing to meet the total product requirement. PP scheduling is supported by interactive screens (such as Product view) and PP heuristics.

Detailed scheduling (DS)

Optimize and plan the production/volgorde schedule and order times in detail. The Detail scheduling (DS) for order planning is performed interactively MBV a plan board. The availability of machines and components is taken into account during the planning process.


PP/DS is mainly designed to plan critical products, such as products with a long delivery time or products produced on critical machines. PP/DS is used to determine executable production plans and helps to:

  • Reduce delivery times
  • Increase delivery Reliability
  • Increase product throughput and reduce inventory costs, through better coordination between machines, production and purchasing.
