Suitability – Exception for Party
Suitability exceptions are used when a suitability rule is true for almost all circumstances, except there’s a single or small number of times when the rule does not apply. This usually means adding one constraint to limit for all, and a second constraint for the exception case.
Exception for Party can be used when a suitability rule is true for almost everyone, except there’s a customer or group of customers for whom it’s not true.
A specified raw material is banned for all customers, except one customer allows it to be used. This could be because the nature of the customers business or location means that a ban is not required on the raw material. It could also be used if you have a raw material which is exclusively used by one customer for commercial reasons.
Using ‘Add a New Suitability Constraint’, add FIRST Suitability Constraint as follows:
Add SECOND Suitability Constraint as follows:
NOTE: this needs to be identical to the first, apart from the exception party
As always, ensure you test your suitability constraint to make sure it works as you expect.
