How can I update Need Dates for Shop Orders, in the event the Required Date for the independent demand against the top-level is changed?
For instance, a product could be given a Required Date of next month. MRP then calculates backwards to determine the date at which each material in the bill must be available to salsify said date, using the component lead time (unprotected). I take it this is how Need Dates are calculated. But, if the business has a change in priorities, and we decide to amend our master schedule, I’d like to find a way to update the raised/released/started orders based on us having manually edited the Required Date.
That way, when APB is executed over a group of orders, taking Need Date as a means to determine sequencing, it can reflect changes in our priorities at the top-level.
Is there a report to provide this alignment? Any data requirements? As of now, we are not using pMRP or DOP. Just IFS Apps 10 (with APB for CBS Scheduling).
