Defining Schedule Entries Manually
A schedule entry is a unique relationship between an item, date, and quantity on a master schedule. You define schedule entries by adding items to schedule names, then defining detailed date and quantity information for each item.
Manually defining an MPS entry in Supply Chain Planning involves extra steps. Supply Chain Planning users should refer to Defining a Supply Chain MPS Entry Manually for further instructions.
To define schedule entries manually:
2. Select a schedule name.
4. Enter an item with an MRP planning method of MPS Planning. See: Defining Items
5. Enter a different MPS explosion level, if you want to change the default. See: MPS Explosion Level.
For MDS, this is the date of shipment. For an MPS, this is the completion date of production.
For repetitive items, whether MDS or MPS, this is the start date of production.
8. For repetitive items, enter an end date of production.
9. Enter a current quantity.
This also becomes the original quantity and the total. Schedule reliefs reduce the current quantity. Schedule reliefs plus the current quantity equals the total.
Note: Your ability to enter project and task references is determined by the organization parameters set in Oracle Inventory. If the project control level is set to project, then the task column will be dimmed, preventing you from entering task references. If the control level is set to task, you can enter references into both columns. See: Setting Up Project MRP in Oracle Inventory.
11. Check Reliefs if you want this entry to be decremented when you create purchase orders, purchase requisitions or discrete jobs--whether you define the purchase requisitions or jobs manually or load them with the Planner Workbench.
