How MRP determines Need by date for PR's.We are observing,some of lower level items need by date on PR is picked up as higher level Work Order completion date.
Please advise how this is determined.
Thanks in advance.
MRP can generated need by date PR base on what day lead time do you set.
there have 3 kind of lead time type,
1. Pre processing lead time
2. Processing lead time
3. post processing lead time
if you set up all of that leadtime, you will find "suggested dock date" in MRP workbench.
need by date PR is take from suggested dock date in MRP workbench.
and add info, suggested dock date can generated if you set processing leadtime.
hope this help and CMIAW
