Supplier Capacities and Alternate Suppliers
I need to understand how standard functionality for supplier capacity works with aternate suppliers. We only buy items not make them.
I know that Supplier Capacities are treated by Fusion SCP as a soft constraint. However, the system does allow allow alternate suppliers to be a) checked to allow alternate supplier consideration on the plan b) Sourcing rules/Bills of Distributions hold alternate suppliers. We only buy items not make them.
Scenario - we need 100 this week and the supplier capacity of main supplier is 90. If we have switched on supplier capacities for the plan, will the system suggest orders over 90 to go to the alternate supplier for that week?
