question regarding manual firming date and planning time fence

Hi All

For one item the planning time fence is mentioned as 20 days in the material master.But however in the md04 list the planning time fence is extended beyond 20days.I checked the help documents and could infer that once manual firming date is mentioned in md04 then the planning time fence is extended upto this date(if the manual firming date entered is later than the planning time fence).

Now my question is how can we check whether a manual firming date has been set or not.If set how can we find which date has been set as manual firming date.

Thanks in advance for all your help in clarifying my doubt.

    HI,

    Depending on the firming type used by you, the system create order proposal outside the planning timefence.

    Firming type 1: An order proposal that lies within the planning time fence is firmed automatically as soon as its date lies at least one day before the finish date of the planning time fence. The date of new order proposals that are actually created in the planning time fence are rescheduled out to the end of the planning time fence. Therefore, these new order proposals are not firmed

    Firming type 2: An order proposal that lies within the planning time fence is automatically firmed as soon as its date lies at least one day before the end of the planning time fence. The system does not create any new order proposals within the planning time fence. That is, the shortage situation is not adjusted within the planning time fence

    Firming type 3: Order proposals that lie within the planning time fence are not firmed automatically. The order proposals required to cover the requirements are moved to the end of the planning time fence

    Firming type 4: Within the planning time fence, the system creates no order proposals automatically. That is, the shortage situation is not adjusted within the planning time fence.

    But if you do manual changes in the order proposal the set set the firming indicator automatically , and you can identify using the asterick indicator()

    REGARDS

    Hi,

    Starting from the stock/requirements list of a material, choose Edit and Set firming date.

    The system displays a dialog box where you can enter, change or delete the manual firming date

    The system flags firmed procurement proposals with a star in the stock/requirements list and the MRP list. So in order you will get the firming date itself.

    Regards

      Thankyou for the response.sorry that i am unable to understand "So in order you will get the firming date itself".Can you please tell where i can see which date is set as firming date.I am authorised for display only and in md04 from edit when i see the "set firming date" option appears grey.

    The core issue was moving of planning time fence due to the periodic lot size selected.The same has been clarified.
