Reviewing Planning Exceptions

Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP and Supply Chain Planning provides a range of exception messages for all plans.

You can easily manage your plan by displaying only those items and orders that require your attention, and you can further narrow your search using other criteria such as by buyer or by line. For each exception that matches your selection criteria, you can view a summary of the exception and then drill down to pinpoint orders or items which caused the exception(s). For these items or orders, you can view item information, horizontal plan, and supply and demand. By saving the exception messages each time you replan simulations, you can compare different versions of the same plan or analyze the strengths and weaknesses of a single plan.

Note: You can only display detailed exception and item planning information for exceptions generated by the current planning run. Relaunching the plan from the Launch DRP/MPS/MRP window erases all exceptions and only rebuilds the "current" version.
