2546648 - Heuristic is not considering a valid Source of Supply


You are running Location Heuristic via /SAPAPO/SNP01 and in your selection there is only the target location (where exists a demand).

- You are using external procurement with a valid Transportation Lane maintained.


- Also, in the field "Temporary Low-Level Codes" you have chosen: "Calculate for current selection before planning"


When you execute the Location Heuristic via /SAPAPO/SNP01 the available Source of Supply is not considered, and so the demand is not covered.

If instead you execute the Heuristic interactive (via /SAPAPO/SDP94) the Source of Supply is correctly chosen and the demand met.
