We've setup purchase lead times for each item in the default order settings (e.g. 25 working days), but due to COVID a lot of our vendors are experiencing delays. They don't really give us a bigger lead time, but quite often, they will just give us a much later date than what master planning had calculated based on that lead-time. Because the default purchase lead-time is still 25 days, master planning will just create a new planned purchase order, 25 days from now so it can fulfill all the sales orders.When we are using CTP calculations, our calculated delivery days will be based on that planned purchase order.
So I'm looking for a solution to block the creation of new planned purchase orders before the date the vendor has promised (without changing the purchase lead time).
Vendor calendars isn't an option because all the items of that vendor would be impacted
We don't use trade agreements.
thanks for your input!
Hi Janssen Jan,
I don't think we have out-of-box functionality to support this.
Hi Janssens Jan,
On the master plan, there is a setting called 'Receipt margin added to requirement date'. This would be added to the lead time.
Agree with Andre that setting Safety Margins under Coverage Groups is one possibility. It will allow you to address multiple items with one change IF the items that need to have their leadtime offsets altered will align well within a given Coverage Group. Another possibility is the leadtime override tab on the Item Coverage settings themselves which would be specific for a given item. That said, I'm not a big fan of either as it puts multiple variables into the equation when the system is calculating leadtime offsets for planning. Makes things more confusing when analyzing planning outputs. If your using Item Templates, there may be a third option to explore there, but Item Templates have a history of being finicky to work with.
