I am trying to understand the planning worksheet in NAV 2015. When the system creates an emergency order the Due Date is set to the day before the start date. It doesn't consider the lead times to either purchase or manufacture the product. This seams to be a strange way to plan because it assumes that you can magically create inventory yesterday. All the other systems that I have worked with would create an order starting today and ending in the future.
Is there a way to change the planning worksheet to forward schedule emergency orders?
I agree that you need to have a human intervene and figure out what can be done. However, there is still a flow in the logic. I created a production order that is due in 1 week, and then re-ran the planning worksheet. The results of this is a new emergency order and an action message to cancel the order I created. Because of the emergency order is scheduled in the past and the system assumes I can get the parts yesterday all of the other planning suggestions need to be looked at. This get even worse with the emergency order is for a subassembly that is used in multiple parts.
Is there a way to configure the planning worksheet to assume I will start manufacturing the parts today and it will be completed using the routing?
There is a way to get what you are looking for from a date perspective I believe. Order Promising details are here, I believe this might be what you are looking for.
This isn't necessarily a way to plan forward, but if you set the source document dates accurately to reflect a real scenario, it will engage the planning worksheet to plan items normally according to their lead time and not trigger emergencies…which is I believe your ultimate ask.
