We have just upgraded to AX2012 r3, though have not enabled WMS yet.
We have some items with very large production runs that span over several days (EG: 3 days). We are utilising Capacity scheduling, so the system is aware of durations etc. We are finding that the standard behaviour is only making the entire production orders finished quantity available on the scheduled end date of the production order, then generating transfers etc after this.
Ideally we want the behaviour of the system to understand that there will be stock available (reported as finished) throughout this 3 days (EG: 2400 per day, based on Capacity etc) and to allocate this and resource schedule accordingly.
ProductionOrder: 123 Quantity: 7200 Duration: 72 hours
Currently MRP will make available 7200 on the 3rd day, and transfer 7200 on the 3rd day, ideally we would want to somehow control production to make available 2400 on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd day, thus transferring it also over 3 days as the stock is made over the 3 days.
Can someone please outline if this is possible and how / what parameters can be used to tightly control this? We do not want to split the production order into smaller lots EG: “Max order qty” we want to keep at 0.
Ideally we would like to initially get this working in our R3 version without enabling WMS, I am hoping this is possible without requiring WMS. If this is possible in WMS also / only, any links would be appreciated.
Any help / links would be greatly appreciated.
