Is there a way to have the Material Required By Date before the Work Order Start Date

Received Response


Customer is using Work Order Picking for Maintenance Work Orders. When they generate picks, the pick uses the Required Date from the Material list. They want to have a material date offset, so that the required date for the materials can be a week before the work order start date. The system does not allow the date to be changed before the work order start date.

Content (required):

Workarounds include:

  1. Setting the Work Order Start Date a week earlier than required, but this then provides other challanges
  2. Adding a dummy operation at the start for the material, but also setting the WO Start Date a week early. This still has its challenges.

Howdy, Stranger!
