Actually, we had a nice little program developed that would
re-calculate lead time thru the routing, based upon lot size and then
updated IIM and CIC lead time. Worked very well to keep things in sync.
That would be a suggestion for you. Tom

Yes, great answer, and we know that. The problem as I see it is how do
we get the two "in sync" - that is to say how would we set the normal
IIM lead time so that it not only reflects the Move and Queue time in
the routings, but also some "arbitrary" or "normal" build quantity RUN
time for each order for this particular part number?? We want the dates
to remain the same as often as possible.

You have a planned order with a start date and a release date. The
difference between the 2 is your lead time.
When you release the order in MRP540 using action code 11 (forward
schedule), you are using the release date as your start date and
calculating a new due date based on your routing (run + move +queue).
Action code 12 (backward schedule) you would use the due date to
recalculate the release date.

In the 'planning' side you use lead time, when you release an order you
are in 'execution' mode and you use the routings.

I enter a forecast and run mps

I run mrp and cap

I have a planned order with a start date

Then, I release that planned order to a shop oder, and the start date

What is the logic causing that start date to change - on the shop order?
