Dear All, I would like to ask you if I can make a SO from planning worksheet, where the planning worksheet set to generate MPS order and from the planning worksheet can be generate sales order (SO), like generate purchase order from a planning worksheet after MRP calculation. If I can generate from planning worksheet, could I generate or make order (SO) from production forecast windows ? tks for your help beforehand rgds, Mark
Hi Mark It would make little sense to get a customer to commit to something that they have no knowledge of. You cannot order for your customer, they must order from you. The production forecast is used to build the stock levels for expected sales, when these sales then come in and are loaded they are taken into consideration on the plan. You need to initially consider WHY you want to do this, I am sure it is possible, but if you create a sales order from teh plan, then the planned sales order comes in the next run of the plan will tell you to make more that you do not need as it is not a real order you are now planning for.
Dear Steven, All, tks a lot for your reply. If I can create SO from planning worksheet, it means that I break the work flow of navision but if the production is make to order by forecast, how can I solve it ? rgds, Mark
Hi Mark I do not understand your question, but if you are saying how do I get the system to plan to order and include forecast then this is fine you can have the reorder policy of order and still get the demand fulfilled by forecast by pulling in the forecast on the regen. Ultimately if you have entered a forecast, it will build to it.
Dear Steven, all, tks a lot for your reply. It works good, I set the RP (reorder.policy) order. I just wonder if I can create sales order (SO) from forecasting windows. I have explored customer card,from sales button in the customer card, I can create SO, I wish I could do that too on the forecast windows. I mean, if I can, I click sales button and click forecasting windows attached to the menubutton of sales, it directly create customer’s forecast windows like sales order, including no. I know blanket order, but I can make forecast per work shift, etc…I await your answer. rgds, Mark
Simply put Mark, as the forecast is non-customer specific, you will need to modify the system to do this. I would however still question the process behind this and the modifications you are undertaking, but the choice is yours.
I think this sounds like a great system, you manufacture stuff, and then generate orders to you customers to buy it. Cuts out all that sales type nonsense, and just gets the money coming in. [:D] Actually this is how Russia used to work some years ago.

You are very funny, I am also very happy if this is implemented, but I don’t know why there are many experts create strange systems that make difficult Steven wrote:

Yes, you are right, I understand that it is not a customer specific, I just create what I need in item table, and wrote some codes to call them and when I select customer code, the others will auto display/appear. But I can’t involve the location code because it has its self codes in the C/AL editor. I wonder what will happen. Rgds, Mark
