Table of Planning Strategy Assignments 

In the system, the planning strategies are recorded in Customizing by a combination of requirements types from Demand Management and from sales order management. This combination of requirements types determines, for example, the consumption of planned independent requirements by customer requirements, or how the availability check is to be carried out.

The planning strategies are maintained in Customizing for Demand Management (under Planned Independent Requirements ® Planning Strategy ® Define strategy). The requirements types are combined for the planning strategy. The requirements types are, technically speaking, texts that represent the planning strategy in the application (Demand Management, Sales and Distribution). The requirements type is controlled by another key, namely, the requirements class. The requirements class contains all the control parameters required for Demand Management and sales and distribution. To maintain the planning strategy, combine the necessary requirements types and the corresponding requirements class is assigned automatically along with all the accompanying control parameters.

SAP recommends that you work with the planning strategies delivered in the standard system. However, if you want to change the texts of the planning strategies, you can do so via the requirements type.

This table (which can be found in Customizing for Demand Management; choose Planned Independent Requirements ® Planning Strategy ® Define strategy) shows the combinations of requirements types that have been defined for the planning strategies available in the standard system:
