Does finite schedule affect higher levels?

Hi,

New to using NAV,

I have identified a bottleneck workcentre and am looking at finite scheduling for it. If I do this will higher level parts take this into account when running MRP?

I understand that MRP uses low level codes to start at finished goods then work backwards however if my bottleneck is at the lowest level will MRP then go backwards and push out finish dates for the finished goods based on the finite schedule?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

NAV/BC is setup for infinite capacity. To add Capacity Constraints, by Work Center, you need to setup Capacity Constrained Resources.

To fully understand MRP and MPS I would read my handout I give customers and staff. It review all the setups and concepts and how they effect planning.

Hope this helps.
