I'm trying to find out if IFS10 is taking in consideration the expiry date (shelflife) of products.

Are you currently using that? Is the functionality available in IFS10? Do I have to turn on specific variables to get this going?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Hi steve,

 

yes in Apps 10 you can setup a part to have MRP consider the expiration date when calculating the supply requirements

DISREGARD, I GOT MY ANSWER.  Further on this question, does MRP also review the LT for the part so the requisition is requested in time to replenish prior to expiration date?

This has been so long ago, I do not have my test still available.  I did not get it solved.  Can you help?

No, I have just been asked the same question. They are using Planning method B and it doesnt order any more based on leadtime and expiry.

I did experiment adding the leadtime figure into the remaining days for planning but creates another issue..

@Burt84 , the majority of our parts are Planning Method A.  I need to do more experimenting myself.
