Hello fellow BPCS victims.

We are using BPCS V6.1.1..
My question: When a parent itemt is fading out / fasing out (let's say
over 1 year); how can we control this easily.
in CIC we are using dynamic minimum stock balances for components. We do
not wish to have obsolete stock after fasing out, but if we put the
balance days = 0 & horizon days = 0 than:
MRP generates inmediately a safety stock = 0, which is of course
dangerous for business, because we still have to deliver for 1 year.

If we do not change the dynamic safety stock, we run the risk of
obsolete stock, because the vendor lead time to our mother company in
Japan is 3 months.

Please let me know your advice.

Thank you in avdance,
