|Min-max||You define a minimum quantity that you want on hand. When you reach this quantity, you reorder. You also define a maximum on-hand quantity that you do not want to exceed.|
|Not planned||No planning method used.|
|Reorder point||The reorder point is calculated based on the planning information you define for this item.|
Enter the material planner assigned to plan this item. You must define planner codes for your organization before updating this attribute. See: Defining Planners.
|Make||Usually manufactured. The Planner Workbench defaults the implementation type Discrete job. The planning process passes demand down from manufactured items to lower level components.|
|Buy||Usually purchased. The Planner Workbench defaults the implementation type to Purchase Requisition. The planning process does not pass demand down from purchased items to lower level components.|
Attention: You must also set Purchasable to Yes to create purchase requisitions and purchase orders. If you also set Build in WIP to Yes, you can use the Planner Workbench to implement planned orders as discrete jobs.
See: Overview of Material Requirements Planning and Creating Planning Exception Sets.
|Inventory||Fill requisition requests by creating internal requisitions that become internal sales orders, to pull stock from existing inventory.|
|Supplier||Fill requisition requests by creating purchase requisitions that become purchase orders, procuring the item from a supplier.|
Optionally enter the organization from which an internal requisition draws the item. This applies only when Inventory is the replenishment source type.
You can choose organizations that meet the following criteria:
The source organization can be your current organization if the item is MRP planned and you choose a non-nettable Source Subinventory.
Enter the subinventory within the source organization from which an internal requisition draws the item. This applies only when Inventory is the replenishment source, and only when you specify a source organization. For MRP planned items, you must enter a non-nettable source subinventory when the source organization is the current organization.
|MRP planned percent||Calculate safety stock as a user-defined percentage (Safety Stock Percent) of the average gross requirements for a user-defined number of days. For discrete items, the user-defined number of days is the Safety Stock Bucket Days. For repetitive items, the user-defined number of days is the repetitive planning period. Note that safety stock for an item varies as the average gross requirements varies during the planning process.|
|Non-MRP planned||Calculate safety stock using methods defined by the Enter Item Safety Stocks window. You can use mean absolute deviation or user-defined percentage of forecasted demand.|
|For Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP and Oracle Supply Chain Planning and Supply Chain Planning, these safety stock quantities are fixed. The Snapshot portion of the planning process loads them, and they do not vary during the planning process itself.|
Enter the number of days to dynamically calculate safety stock quantities. The planning process multiplies the Safety Stock Percent by the average gross requirements and divides by the number of days you enter here. See: Overview of Material Requirements Planning.
Enter the percent to dynamically calculate safety stock quantities for the item. The planning process multiplies this percent by the average gross requirements and divides by the Safety Stock Bucket Days.
The planning process uses this attribute when you set Safety Stock to MRP planned percent. See: Overview of Material Requirements Planning.
Enter the quantity used to modify the size of planned order quantities or repetitive daily rates. When net requirements fall short of the fixed order quantity, the planning process suggests the fixed order quantity. When net requirements exceed the fixed order quantity, the planning process suggests multiple orders for the fixed order quantity.
For discrete items, use this attribute to define a fixed production or purchasing quantity. For repetitive items, use this attribute to define a fixed production rate. For example, if your suppliers can provide the item in full truckload quantities only, enter the full truckload quantity as the fixed order quantity. See: Overview of Material Requirements Planning and Overview of Repetitive Planning.
Enter the number of days used to modify the size and timing of planned order quantities. The planning process suggests planned order quantities that cover net requirements for the period defined by this value. The planning process suggests one planned order for each period. For example, use this to reduce the number of planned orders for a discrete component of a repetitive item. See: Overview of Material Requirements Planning.
When net requirements fall short of the fixed lot size multiplier quantity, planning algorithms suggest a single order for the fixed lot size multiplier quantity. When net requirements exceed the fixed lot size multiplier quantity, planning algorithms suggest a single order that is a multiple of the fixed lot size multiplier.
