In this step, you specify the reduction strategy to be used when the reduction measures are carried out. Scheduling reduces the lead_time automatically if the basic dates given are not adhered to, that is if the scheduled dates lie outside the basic dates.
In this work step, you also define the reduction levels. The reduction takes place level by level no further than the level that you have specified in the control parameters.
You can specify a reduction strategy in every operation.
The SAP system reduces step by step no further than the reduction level that is specified in the control parameters.
The reduction levels are predefined in the SAP standard package.
