In what way did the MRP300 pegging disagree with you? How many levels in the
BOM do you need to peg through? Do you need individual shop orders per
customer order or do you just need to identify the affect, on customer
orders, of changes to child item planned orders?

Subject: Pegging planned items back up to discrete customer orders.

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..

 

Regards,
