Hello Don,

There is an order policy in MPR140 that allows you to group demands in a
certain period. Check the help function by pressing F1 in the order
policy field of MRP140 and you can find out which order policy it is and
how it works.

question> > Greetings - we have a new Purchasing Manager asking the
following question:> > "How does one set up order periods within BPCS"?
For example, we would like to set up our inventory into ABC codes (not
the Cycle Count codes) in which "A" items would turn once per week, "B"
items turn twice per month and "C" items turn once per month. In this
example, we would like MRP to suggest planned orders in the way
described above in which an planned order would sugges t an order
period of five days, "B" item 10 days and "C" item 20 days">
