Item Coverage Freeze frame of minimum stock replenish order that will not affect sales or forecast demands for the same item.

Posted on by 30

Hi forum,

I have read a lot about the Item coverage and min / max stock replenish but still not found the answer to my question.

We are producing products of complex structures with large BOM's. The lead time for raw material in BOMs are long (2-50weeks) and our manufacturing time between 1 and 10 weeks.

Our customers demands don't comply with the input parameters, hence we need a saftey stock, minimum stock level.

Now, how do I set this up with in AX?

Item Coverage, coverage group and master plan parameters are set up for period on almost all items and all planning works fine.

Item coverage is set up with minimum 200 pcs, fulfil min today's date +procurement time, lead time production 90days, and it appears nicely in plan. But tomorrow it's still 90 days from today.

The specific issue I have is that replenish of safety stock might be 5-30weeks. Mainly driven from raw material lead time.

For normal production firming window is around 2-5wks depending on product. (Based on sales orders and forecast. orders firmed as late as possible for flexibility)

To make it work on my item with 90days lead time, firming window need to be 91days, or this saftety stock order will just be adrift 90d from today. The firming window in Item Coverage applies to the item and overrides the 2-5 weeks i want for SO and forecast.

Is there a solution to my issue or another way to setup min/safety stock? I need safety stock on sub produced items as well.

Thanks!

    Hi,

    Have you tried Min/Max for Item Coverage?
