Hi. I wonder if anyone can help me, I just cannot find a solution to my problem.
I wish to set up AX 4 in such a manner that I get a Planned Purchase Order for a Delivery Day that a Vendor can deliver on (lets say that’s every Wednesday only). MRP must consider On-hand stock, Sales Orders, Forecast Sales (reduced by actual Sales Orders for tomorrow only). Note we only have Sales Orders for today ONLY.
Wednesday only Calendar set against Coverage Group
If I set a Wednesday only (Wednesday Control = Open, all others days Control = Closed) calendar against the Coverage Group I get a Wednesday Delivery day for the Planned Purchase Order BUT all Sales Forecast is missing in Net Requirements and not taken in to account by MRP for Sales Forecast up to next Wednesday ! That’s no good and not what I want.
24/7 Calendar set against Coverage Group
If I set a calendar against the Coverage Group whereby all days are control = Open, I see all future date Sales Forecast in Net Requirements, and MRP takes them in to account. Sales forecast for today is reduced by actual Sales Orders for today BUT the Planned Purchase Order Delivery day does not reflect delivery on Wednesdays only !
Setting a calendar against a Vendor has no influence.
Any help or advice gratefully received.
