Want the PO Due Date to be 5 days earlier than SO Due Date

Hello all,

Hopefully you can help me with my question. I have noticed that all the PO’s due date for items required for assembly or for a Sales Order are due the same day that the SO is due to ship or the Assembly is due to start. This does not allow for any receiving, inspection, warehousing process in between. My question is

Is there a setup in AX that makes all new PO Due Dates to be due 5 days sooner than when the item is required to allow for any extra processing? For example

If Sales Order is due to ship on January 25th, I want AX to generate a Planned PO for my buyers due on January 20th.

Is this possible.

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you are using planning then you can configure the margin settings to cover this. Have you looked at them? They exist on the plan and coverage group but are independent, so days put in both count twice.


thanks for the advice, I added 3 days to the receipt margin and it looks like is working will monitor it for the next few days and let you know.

Best Regards,
