Enhancements to planned dates for shop order materials

Written by Pieter Hamans on . Posted in Exact Online


By default, we assume that all materials required for a shop order must be available before production starts. The planned date for the materials is derived from the planned date of the shop order (‘delivery date’) and the lead time of the bill-of-materials version. When the supplier informs us that his delivery is late, we should update the planned date. This so-called closed loop has now been implemented in Exact Online Manufacturing.

Establishing a planned date for materials

The bill-of-materials version allows to specify a (production) lead time.

Based on the lead time and the planned date of the shop order (the delivery date), planned dates of materials are established.

Updating the planned date for materials

The planned dates for the materials are displayed in the materials section of the shop order card.

When the supplier notifies us that a planned date has changed, we should update the receipt date in the purchase order.

The planned date in the materials section will be updated accordingly.

These enhancements have been released to all editions of Exact Online Manufacturing in all countries in July 2015. More information with Pieter Hamans, pieter.hamans@exact.com
