Orville,

I did this for a prior employer - not integrating AutoRelease, but a daily
scheduling application that I used to simulate an advanced planning
solution (I
didn't have the budget to acquire AVP). How I did it was to take the
output
from the daily scheduling application, clear all firm planned orders from
MPSP
for the planner designated for the end items, and programmatically create
firm
planned orders for each day's scheduled production. This was done
immediately
prior to our weekly (or more frequent as required) MPSP/MRP process.

Since we generally built to a planned overall schedule for a total number
of
units, this worked well for us. It wasn't an ideal solution, but was quite

effective for us while we were producing that product line. It basically
gave
us the benefit of maintaining a somewhat flexible daily production schedule
and
also gave us the benefits of planning all components in MRP (we produced
between
80-90% of the components in house). In other words, we integrated a demand

planning process at the top end, with a batch ordering process at the lower

levels.

It actually wasn't that difficult to do. However, having said that, it
only
worked for us because we were able to maintain a steady level of production
at
the top level/end item level, and there was a fairly high percentage of
common
components for that product.


I had intended to extend that process to other areas of the company, but
the
company decided to abandon that product line before I was able to do so.

Hello,

I have two Infor packages. One is AutoRelease (for EDI) and the other is
XA 7.7. What I am trying to do is split the weekly (from AutoRelease)
buckets into daily buckets in MRP. Looked through the manuals and they
were not any help.

Has someone else been able to do this within XA?
