1.  Production Order "Backdating"

Posted 7 days ago
​For the last two days we have had Production orders created "today" with Start dates prior.  I didn't think that was possible in AX.  These were created by our MRP job run, not manually created.  Any ideas as to what would make this happen?  One had a negative on hand quantity and another had fallen below "safety stock" minimum requirements but the other two were just regular sales/production requirements.

Most likely culprit is the settings for the master plan you're running. Under MP/setup/master plans, pull up the plan you're running, look under "futures messages", and see if the various boxes for using futures as requirement date are checked. If checked, you will generally not see orders with past due dates, if unchecked you are enabling this.

If that's not it, you might have some item specific leadtimes (item coverage, default order settings) that could be overriding things, but from what you're describing that's not as likely.

Chan, thanks for the post.  We just upgraded from 2012 CU3 to CU9 and got bit by this "future messages" checkbox.  In our CU3 environment, MRP did not set planned order dates in the past.  But with CU9, we were getting order dates in the past.  We just corrected this yesterday thanks to the help of @ebos​

​We are on version RTM.  Like GG said it doesn't happen on this version even with the setup boxes unchecked. But it has in the last couple of days and I didn't know what was causing it.  Maybe I'll check the boxes you recommended Chan and we'll go from there.  Thank you both for replying!
