Fixed Date and Qty Indicator

I am contemplating using the Fixed Date and Qty Indicator (VBAP-FIXMG) to control the passing of requirements when MRP runs. If an order is on credit hold, having this field "checked" prevents the passing of requirements when MRP runs. Once the order is released from credit hold, the subsequent run of MRP then correctly passes the requirements.

It seems to do what I want it to. However, just wondering if there are any "downsides" in using this configuration to control when requirements are passed through MRP.

Has anyone used this indicator and discovered any unintended negative side affects?

Thank you for your help.

    Hi Tom,

    One down effect is that the order will not enter into the rescheduling, the system considers it irrelevant. So if you are using the rescheduling functionality and want the order to be part of it, then you should consider this.
