The Supply Planning white paper for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1 has been updated on both PartnerSource and CustomerSource. The Supply Planning white paper is intended for planning experts who are involved in the implementation or support of supply planning functionality in Microsoft Dynamics NAV installations and for those who need to make modifications within the area. It gives an overview of the concepts and principles that are used within the supply planning area of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1.
In this version, the following issue is addressed:
When using reorder policies Maximum Qty and Fixed Reorder Qty, the planning system focuses on the projected inventory in the given time-bucket only. This means that the planning system may suggest superfluous supply when negative demand or positive supply changes occur outside of the given time bucket.
The issue is fixed as follows:
A warning is displayed when superfluous supply causes the projected inventory to exceed the highest projected inventory in an ideal supply plan, defined as the "overflow level". The warning message displays the overflow level that the planner must adjust to if he wants to avoid the superfluous supply.
