After running the master scheduling I get Planned Batch Orders and at the end of the period I still have some stock left. I would expect the MRP to propose consuming the stock at first and then continue by creating Planned Purchase Orders for the remaining of the forecasts and sales orders and to leave me at no stock level at the end of the forecasted period. Instead I get almost the same stock at the end as in the begging.
Further down the net req for item 10000002
maybe some safety-invent has been set?
Please post the requirements listing / bitmap - or am I looking at this post too early?
Several settings can cause this. Implementing master planning is not the most simple module in AX. Which settings do you have on the related Coverage group?
I guess it is something related to the minimum stock configured for the item, or Safety stock jounals perhaps. I would change the minimum to 0 on the Item Coverage form, and I would also check the Planned order type on the same form. Coverage group settings will also affect the outcome of the Master plan.
Here is a scr shot of the coverage group settings
Also there isnt a single Safety Stock Journal nor a minimum stock configured for the item. The Default order type is set to Production
Many thanx Ferox

Look at the coverage group settings in the previous post
Many thanx, Ferox
please share some info from the net requirements form - at least the dimension where you have the issue and including the data in the pegging group for the transactions in question.
Thanks for the shot of the Coverage settings; it confirms 'Positive days' is not responsible - unless the Item coverage is overriding that setting.
Can we get a shot of the Item's 'Net requirements' screen against the plan that is specified on the 'Master scheduling' job when it executes? Including the data on the 'Setup' tab.
Here are print screens of the net requirements with the planned orders and the setup tab and also the pegging information for the on hand line.
Note that the only dimension is the Site.
Then the list goes on and on with requirement and planned orders and ends at the end of the last requirement with accumulated stock at the end of the period of 3065,00.
At what date does the first planned batch order come in? How many days is it from the run?
On the item record in the item coverage settings do you have these set by site and are the coverage period and fences set the same as above (I assume yes).
Are there any overriding time fences on the master plan that is run?
What about the "include on-hand inventory" checkbox on the masterplan? I know it's a wild shot, but ...
The "include on-hand inventory" check box is ticked. If it wasn't the "on-hand" line wouldn't even show on the "net requirements" form.
And my answers? :-)
Sorry I somehow missed your response.
The first planned batch order comes at different times for different items based on the requirement date, sometimes it is few days after the run and sometimes few months after the MRP run.
On the item coverage settings they are set by site and the coverage period, principle and fences are the same and there are no overriding fences on the master plan.
So at a different period of time in different net requirements the system decides that the remaining on-hand is actually 0 and then balances supply and demand until the end of the time fence leaving in stock the amount it reduced to 0 at the point it starts creating full supply to demand orders.
I am not interested in the first planned order, but the first planned order that ignores the stock - but I think that is what you have answered (we cannot see all of the screen you have cut the start and end but we will assume it is the case :-))
You could do this with the negative/positive days or even some of the other time fences depends upon configuration, but from your screen shots and text this is not the case.
Okay to first next question! If this is a live system what version is it (with CU). Then are you 100% sure there are no customizations in planning and finally do you have access to a test Contoso system of the same version and replicating the coverage group and forecast creates the same impact for the item?
As the difference is item related it would point to something in the coverage group or item coverage setup. I would guess you have the same group assigned to items performing differently so would then solely look at the item coverage group impact - I presume no overrides set there by site or whatever?
No issues with you missing the reply, just closing off options :-)
The current live version is R2, CU7. I did the tests on a Contoso R2 CU6 and i cannot reproduce the problem. The Contoso system works just fine and as expected. There are no overrides at the item coverage group.
Finally there has been a customization which updates the forecast and SO and it seems that the problem comes from there. I will keep you posted. Thank you for your time so far : )
This issue was caused by a specific development that creates sales orders for the items and in each sales orders specifies the sub BOM version and sub route version. It was solved by ticking the boxes next to "BOM or Formula version req." and "Route Version Req." on the coverage group settings for the items.
Kind Regards, Ferox
