I presume that since you refer to the CIC file you mean that this 
additional 7 days is not required for all facilities, otherwise you would 
change the lead time in the Item Master file. But since the Item Master is 
a universal record (same for all facilities) that would not work if the 
additional lead time is only needed for a specific facility. The first 
place I looked was the Vendor Quote file to see what could be used there, 
and there is a field called "Vendor Lead Time" which is for additional 
time needed for this Vendor/Item, BUT the data is reference only and not 
used to calculate a due date. The Purchasing System Parameters (PUR820) 
are also no help (the Inspection Days Required) since that applies 
additional time to all items/facilities. The only solution I can suggest 
will require you to MANUALLY enter the Delivery Date you require in the 
Purchase Order Line Detail screen (see below). When you do this (I suggest 
that you read the help text for that field) it will print that date as the 
due date on the PO. This will allow you to specify unique values on a 
multiple line PO for individual items. It's not pretty, but it works. Good

[BPCS-L] PO Due Date

Version   6.1     Release   01


When I run MRP I have some parts where the PO due dates should be backed
up 7 days from the calculated date. They are not working correctly. Is
there a set way to set this type of part up in the CIC file?
