Hello Kevin,

As far as I know is the MLI code is for what you describe.
It tels MRP if it has to react on independent demand (Customer orders and
forcast) for this item or not.
MRP will plan depend demand (component needs from M-Orders) for non MLI
items.

Met vriendelijke groet
Yours sincerely
Bien à vous

Buffering with master schedule would be good, normal practice. And in most
cases we have MLI items with forecast code 2 (generate but don't create
requirements) and plan customer orders = 1 (plan beyond current MRP date).
Normally I recommend that they plan customer orders beyond the release or
review horizons (2,3) but in this case they have "drop" in orders to rush
and they can't change the culture that fast, so they keep a large amount of
excess capacity and inventory around to accommodate a "rush" order.

there are some very low volume items with un-plannable demand that they
want MRP to see the customer order at lead time. But (and this is the truly
amazing part to me) unless the item is MLI it will not, under any
circumstances, create MRP demand.

I'm just trying to confirm if anyone has known of this, or if anyone has
MRP generating MRP requirements from customer orders that are NOT MLI.

Thanks all. Very interesting

Dale, were/are FFT's customer orders buffered from MRP by MPS and only the
master schedule quantity driven into MRP?

If not, I'm completely confused.

Kevin,

Believe it or not - I spent all 25 of my MAPICS years keeping OE&I/COM
orders OUT of MRP - we very carefully did NOT want customer orders
impacting
MRP generation - which is easy to accomplish. Sorry - can't help you on
this one.

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?
