Source Type Field
You can load a master schedule from any of the following internal sources:
Loading a master schedule in Supply Chain Planning involves extra steps. Supply Chain Planning users should refer to Loading a Supply Chain MPS from and Internal Source for further information.
When you load a master schedule from a forecast, Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP and Supply Chain Planning includes forecast entries as follows:
|Start date minus backward consumption days
The load converts forecast entries for repetitive items into repetitive entries in the master schedule -- even if the original forecast entry does not have a forecast end date.
Master demand and production schedule entries for repetitive items must fall on valid workdays.
You can load planned order demand from one or more requesting organizations into the master demand schedule of a supplying organization.
For example, Org 1 is the requesting organization. Org 1 considers the workstation an MRP-planned item, internally replenished by Org 2. Org 2 manufactures the workstation, where it is an MPS-planned item. The manufactured workstation includes a monitor that Org 2 receives from Org 3.
To produce a valid multiorganization material plan, you:
- generate planned orders for workstations in Org 1
- load the master demand schedule for Org 2 with interorganization planned orders from Org 1
- generate planned orders for monitors in Org 2
With this source type, you can load either:
- load the master demand schedule for Org 3 with interorganization planned orders from Org 2; this drives the planning process for Org 3
- sales orders from today forward
Attention: The Planning Manager must be running to guarantee a consistent picture of demand. The load master schedule process does not pick up any demand for sales orders that you place more recently than the last execution of the planning manager.
- load a schedule from one organization to another
This feature is most useful to copy an existing schedule and modify the copy. You can apply a modification percent to the new schedule and/or move schedule entries forward or backward by a specific number of days.
- copy a schedule within an organization
To increase the quantity of the new schedule, specify a percent by which to multiply the schedule entries. Oracle Master Scheduling/MRP and Supply Chain Planning adds the result of the multiplication to the existing quantities. To decrease the new schedule, enter a negative percent.
For example, to increase an existing schedule entry of 100 by 10 percent, specify a modification percent of 10. The resulting schedule entry is 110. To decrease an existing schedule entry of 100 by 10 percent, enter a modification percent of -10. The resulting schedule entry is 90.
To move schedule entries forward in time, specify a number of workdays. To move schedule entries backward, enter a negative number. Holidays are not recognized as workdays; the previous valid workday is used instead.
For example, the existing schedule contains an entry of 100 on Monday. Wednesday is a holiday. The following Saturday and Sunday are not workdays. If you wish to move the schedule entry to the next Monday, specify four carry forward days.
With this source type you can:
- consolidate master schedules, plans, and forecasts from multiple organizations into a single source
- load multiple sources into a master schedule in one transaction
