Uhhhh... Not so fast, Slim... A closer analogy would be same reason a current MRP report is used, instead of one 4 months old. Because if the info is spread so thin you can't FIND it when you NEED to USE it (MRP report, or Planning Guide, or whatever).. ..Well, info you can't Find is LESS-than-useless because you lose time looking for it. Sames goes if it isn't Precisely and Exactly Available on 24/7/365(6) basis, as you may know. "The Net idn't available" is no different than the old, lame "The system's down, so no can do" type of customer lack-of-service of decades ago. Just a new, hip way of saying same. | -----Original Message----- | [mailto:midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of rob@xxxxxxxxx | Same reason that a 4 month old MRP report is not what you want your | planners using for shop floor production.
