Critical items using master planning

Hi all,
How can we run master planning according to specific items that are critical based on several factors? Ex: Due in production at a certain date so i need to make sure that my delai will be taken into account.

Hi, taty!

Do you mean you want to run Master Plan for specific Items only?

Are you using legacy Master Planning or Planning Optimization in D365FO?


I am using planning optimization.

  1. However, i would like to have a way to filter on specific item that are critical for us ( for purchase or for production).

  2. After running master planning; Where can I find an OOB function to directly find the parts that delay the sales order?

  3. Do we have a function or report that give us list of parts that are delaying production orders?


Hi, taty!

You can find explanation of options to filter Master plan runs here:

[Apply filters to a plan - Training | Microsoft Learn]

Personally, I would not set any filters when running Master planning. Using Planning optimization performance/runtime duration should be at good level by default without any filters. It would also make sure the results are considering all possible interdependencies with other Items.

Then, focusing on specific Items after planning results are available is another topic… You can start from looking at Delay messages if that helps you:

thanks. i’ll try your suggestion
