This document explains how to update planning values dynamically using planning templates. This process simplifies the maintenance of items throughout the different stages of the product life cycle based on system transactions
The following planning values are updated automatically based on historical transactions.
Define item and warehouse
Start 'Item. Connect Warehouse' (MMS002). From panel E, enter the standard planning values.
Proceed to 'Planning Policy. Open' (MMS037) to set up the planning policy. For example:
Create planning template
Start 'Planning template. Open' (RPS180) and define how you want the planning values to be changed. For example, you can create separate planning templates for new, mature, and obsolete items.
Set up planning template rules
Proceed to (RPS180/E) and define the planning values.
Proceed to 'Planning template rules. Open' (RPS185). Define the conditions. For example, you can define rules for how to handle new, mature, and obsolete items.
Schedule mass update of planning values to be run at set interval
Proceed to 'Invent Control Value. Mass Update' (MMS350). Schedule when the mass update of planning values should occur, or run it as a normal submitted job.
