yes sir ...

We have a product called "Peas in a Pod" (R) that was designed to
recognize lot attributes in BPCS' MPS/MRP processing. It was
invented for a carpet manufacturer.

As you tuft a 12' wide carpet, the ~1480 spools of yarn back
in the creel all have to come from precisely the same dye lot.
Just one spool from a different lot will cause a streak to
appear in the finished carpet. Peas in a Pod can be configured
so that even if you have 1400 yarn spools in lot #x1 and 1400
yarn spools in lot #x2, BPCS MPS won't "see" enough
on-hand yarn inventory to plan a carpet tufting shop order
until MRP can plan for the receipt of a new yarn lot with at least
1480 spools in that new lot.

The same Peas in a Pod logic recognizes the expiration date
attribute. Vanilla BPCS is perfectly happy to "use" on-hand
carrots for a planned soup blending order even when the
blending is scheduled after the expiration date of the carrot lot.

Hi!

Has anybody developed a solution to deal with the expiration date
of lot controlled items in the MRP logic?
