It does not make sense to me either, but sometimes I get overruled on the best way to run the company. I am, after all, a tech SUPPORT guy, who fixes problems that other people bring to me to fix. They don't want me fixing what they do not think is broken.

I am just sharing alternatives. Our alternative works, most of the time.

Why would you create a forecast in MRP100 with customer P.O.'s ?? I t does
not make sense to me. Just add it as a forecast not linked in any way to a
salesorder/PO, then there should be no way product will ship based on
forecast.
Only shipment would be from actual orders, as it should be.

Re: [BPCS-L] Forecasting






UPI has great solutions to common problems.
I have suggested to my company that we use MRP100, to avoid the Infor
extortionist prices for adding FOR to our contract.
However, we create real customer orders 5+ weeks out with Customer PO
FORECAST which in my opinion creates extra work to manage, like when a
FORECAST gets accidentally shipped.
