I have setup all my plannings on the item card and it runs as it should(i think) but sometimes we have longer leadtime on some of items than stated on the item card, and that causes a lot of new lines in the requisition worksheet (action message) is there somehow a way out of this? can i "freeze" PO lines where i know the actual leadtime is longer than stated on the item card?
You want to stop the additional request for actions given the supply chain delays in lead times. You can update your Lead Times, by Vendor and Item No. You can also apply Dampener Period and/or Dampener Qty to eliminate these additional actions. Here are some Planning Parameter settings a definitions to help you reduce the requests:
The way in which the planning system controls item supply is determined by various settings on the item card or SKU, and settings in manufacturing setup. The following table shows how these parameters are used for planning.
Define if the item is to be planned
Reordering Policy= Blank
Define when to reorder
Safety Lead Time
Define how much to reorder
Safety Stock Quantity
• Fixed Reorder Qty. plus Reorder Quantity
• Maximum Qty. plus Maximum Inventory
Optimize when and how much to reorder
Lot Accumulation Period
Modify the supply orders
Minimum Order Quantity
Maximum Order Quantity
Delimit the planned item
Define If the Item Will Be Planned
To include an item/SKU in the planning process, it must have a reordering policy otherwise it must be planned manually, for example, with the Order Planning feature.
Define When to Reorder
Reorder proposals are generally released only when the projected available quantity has fallen to or below a given quantity. This quantity is defined by the reorder point. Otherwise, it will be zero. Zero can be adjusted by entering a safety stock quantity. If the user has defined a safety lead time, it will cause the proposal to be delivered in the period prior to the required due date.
The Time Bucket field is used by reorder point policies (Fixed Reorder Qty. and Maximum Qty.), where the inventory level is checked after each time bucket. The first time bucket begins on the planning starting date.
The default safety lead time, in the Manufacturing Setup window, should be set to at least one day. The due date of the demand may be known, but not the due time. The planning schedules backward to meet gross demand, and, if no safety lead time is defined, the goods may arrive too late to meet the demand.
Three additional reorder period fields, Rescheduling Period, Lot Accumulation Period, and Dampener Period, also play a role in defining when to reorder.
Define How Much to Reorder
If the planning system detects the need to reorder, the selected reordering policy is used to determine when and how much to order. Independent of the reordering policy, the planning system usually follows this logic:
The following reorder period fields also play a role in defining how much to reorder: Rescheduling Period, Lot Accumulation Period, and Dampener Period.
The following reordering policies affect the quantity that is being reordered.
In addition to all this, if you NEVER want a PO to change or generate new request, on the Purchase Line add the field Planning Flexibility and set the field to NONE.
Hope all this helps.
