I would like to know if anyone has solved the issue of planned item pegging back to the customer order. I know the data exists in BPCS, I just haven't found anyone who knows how to extract it. I had a consultant in who said if we could flatten the bill of materials for a planned item we should be able to drill from the child item up through the bom to the end item, and to the customer order number. Unfortunately he was not able to do this. (We use Production version 405 CD.) This is an example of what I am hoping to solve: Currently, in our version of BPCS, all planned items (items that have a demand in the system and have a planned order but have no open shop orders yet), are consolidated based on the requested ship date. For example: Customer: Item Qty Due 1 A 60 15-Apr 2 A 90 15-Apr 3 A 120 15-Apr 4 A 30 15-Apr One 'planned' order for Item A for 300 pieces is created in BPCS. Is there are way to not have BPCS do this automatic consolidation? In MRP systems I have used, automatic consolidation was a server flag that was set to Yes or No, with a consolidation interval and horizon. I would think that BPCS would at least have the option to turn automatic consolidation on or off. Any help would be appreciated..
