I have AX 2009 and am having a problem with MPS and the dates it is generating.
Specifically regarding Production orders
We Have Production 1 module so there are no routings involved
The items all have coverage Plans attached to them Set as Min/Max
For all manufactured items
Tthe lead time is 7 days
Fullfillment is Todays date & procurement time
Coverage period is set to 30 days and Coverage time fence to 240 days (but I have changed this to every Possible number to see if anything changes when the MPS runs but No results)
No Forecast is set up
Coverage Group: is set to Requirement
(This is mainly for our purchased items since we get them from China and that is under a different site and is set as the
So Basically when the items reaches the Min Qty in our US warehouse it geterates a purchace order in the China Site)
I hope this is all the info you require
Now my problem is is that when I run MPS it is scheduling the Production orders Way into Feb 2013
My first thought was because the Production Item Had BOm parts that needed to be purchased and that is why the date
is pushed out.
However None of the lead time of the components as more than 75 days
Yet the production order is set to 2013
No matter what fields I change EG Time fence, Explosion ,ETC the dates are still 2013
I even Ran MPS for a Production Item Where are the components are in stock and still the date is 2013
Our standard calendar is loaded with worktimes for 2012 and 2013
Can Someone please tell me Why the dates are being pushed so far in the future ?
