How to Commit based on Start Date rather than Created Date?

edited Nov 23, 2022 3:07AM in Ask A Guru 3 comments

HI everyone,

We are having an issue with parts being issued to work orders based on creation date rather than Start dates. Is this supposed to happen? We ran a test with two workorders:


Created: 11/15/22

Start Date: 12/21/22

Production End Date: 12/28/22


Created: 11/16/22

Start Date: 12/14/22

Production End Date: 12/28/22

We did this to not contaminate the dates. The creation date was purposely made on two different days. Then we had the start date of the later work order start before WO1. To make sure there wasn't any other date contaminates, we set the production end date to mirror each other. Both work orders had the same part added to it. this part number had zero in stock, no open allocations, and no open purchase orders. Once the second work order was created on the second day, we adjusted a quantity of (1) into inventory, refreshed our screens to show

Howdy, Stranger!
