This is a blog on the Finite Heuristics available within the Response & Supply application of SAP IBP, including the Time-Series (TS) and Order Based Planning (OBP) Finite Heuristic.

Please note that for the TS finite heuristic both R&S and S&O license are required. For the OBP Contrained Forecast Run (Finite Heuristic or Optimizer) the R&S license is sufficient. See also SAP Help for Applications and Features.
