Forward Scheduling for external procurement

Hi,

I read the SAP help portal on the topic forward scheduling for external procurement., there is this point....

Materials that are planned using MRP or forecast-based planning are switched to forward scheduling if the start date calculated in backward scheduling was in the past..

Do you understand what SAP trying to say on above point? an example will be great.

    Dear Tuffy,

    Say for example

    when running MRP it does backward scheduling

    If the material required date falls before ( i.e 20-09-10 ) ( previous date )

    Taking all parameters (PR processing time, Planned delevery time, GR processing time )

    Then MRP automatically does Forward scheduling starting from current date ( i.e start date 22-09-2010 )

    Regards

      Dear Tuffy,

      Previous date - Past date

      Todays' date - 22-09-2010

      Past date - 20-09-2010

      If the requirement date if falling past date

      then system will automatically does forward scheduling with current date

      Regards
