Correct.

Unless an item is MLI, the Plan Customer Orders flag (0,1,2,3,4, 5) will not
cause the system to generate an MRP requirement. I have orders in the
system that are not MLI items. MRP does not see these items.

So, I'm informed (I still find it hard to believe I've not realized this
sometime in the past 30 years) that if you want MRP to plan for customer
orders entered into COM (as backlog), you must code the item MLI.

To pass the requirement to MRP without having to review at MLI, is to use
forecast code 0.

Kevin:

Are you suggesting MAPCIS is not including the customer order demands in the
summary of all demands for an item?

By all demands I mean inventory policies (safety stock, lot sizing, etc.) as
well as all independent demands.

All



Is it possible that in 30 years I've missed this one:



I would like MRP to plan customer orders. Is it a requirement that the item
be flagged as MLI?



I don't want to have to firm up MLI plan. I just want customer orders to
generate MRP requirements.



What should the settings be?
