Handling Multiple Production Lines

I am implementing OPM R12 for Cement Industry. Our client has 7 production lines and needs to create batches and production plan for each production line. Can anyone suggest how to do this by creating a single Inventory Org? Or is creating multiple Inventory Orgs the only solution?
*Note:- Our client does not have different sub-inventory for each production line. There is a common sub-inventory for each production line.

Thanks,
Birju

    Hi,

    You wouldn't want to create multiple inventory organisations.

    The best way you can achieve what you need is to group all the plant resources in each production line into a resource group. For example we group all our packing machines into a resource group called Packaging. This means in planning (ASCP) we can view the plan by resource group.

    OPM batches are specific to a recipe selected, so I guess the name of your routing should reflect the name of the production line.
