Define reduction strategies for scheduling

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.

You use the reduction strategies to determine how the operation lead time can be reduced step by step. You can enter a reduction strategy in every operation.
You can define up to six reduction levels for each reduction strategy. For every reduction level you can enter what is to be reduced and by how much.

Note

The SAP system reduces step by step no further than the reduction level that is specified in the control parameters.

Standard settings

The reduction levels are predefined in the SAP standard package.
