Planning Optimization: Master scheduling planned order number sequencing format

  • 1.  Planning Optimization: Master scheduling planned order number sequencing format

    Posted Mar 10, 2021 07:34 PM

    I have started exploring the planning optimization. After we turn on planning optimization and run master planning, one thing I noticed is that the number sequencing of the planned order (Master Planning -> Planned Orders) is different as compare to when I turn off planning optimization (i.e. previous version: master planning). It seems that planning optimization is not picking up the number sequencing for planned orders, although it is already configured under (Setup -> Master planning parameters > Number Sequences) -> "Master Scheduling planned order number". FYI, it is correctly picking up this number sequencing format when we turn-off planning optimization, and use the previous master planning.

    Example below:
    Planning Optimization: Turn On: Planned Order Number generated is 0009000001 (Master Planning -> Planned Orders). Not picking up number sequencing format, although it is correctly configured in the setup.

    Planning Optimization: Turn Off (means it is back to the previous Master planning): Planned Order number generated is MPO-126218. Correctly picking up number sequencing from the master planning parameters.

    Question: Any idea from where I can find this number sequencing for planned order when we turn on planning optimization?

    Hopefully, Microsoft has not hardcoded this inside the system because planning optimization is new :).
