I have items that are identified as a BOM in inventory but I want them purchased. On the Inventory Screen in Setup > Item Coverage > General Tab I have selected “Change planned order type” and changed the Planned order type to “Purchase order”. When I run Master Planning, I do not get Planned purchase orders for these items. If I go to Inquiries > Coverage > Action Details and lookup the item it shows Advance with -3 days.
I had setup my test system to use this functionality and it worked but my production system does not. I compared the Coverage Group setup and they are the same. I’m missing something obvious but I don’t know what it is. Does anyone have any idea where I should start looking?
