Hi, I have a multi-level bom with three Subs - one is a bom (A) and two are phantom (B, C). None of them have route assigned. A has three further sub-boms. we have defined them as line item for the BOM line type. The phantoms are defined as phantoms in the bom line type.
I set up a demand forecast for 5 Qty every week for the next 3 weeks. (note here: few components lead time take almost a month to procure).
What I noticed is that when I run the master plan, AX takes the lead time of the components and subs into account and shows the delayed production order correctly.
However, when I run a forecast plan, Ax doesn’t seem adjust the production start dates for Subs or main bom but simply shows the production order as per the forecasted date. say if I have a forecast of 5 qty on 2/15, it shows the production order for the forecasted demand, while it shows the Planned purchase orders for the components that would start at least month from today.
Why AX doesn’t adjust the production order for BOM or SUB? There are no quantities in stock for any of the materials. Is that how AX is designed to respond for forecast plan?
