Feature - ATP Regen to Consider Order Multiple and Economic Order Qty

Release Date - 3/9/16

When running the ATP regen to create plan orders, the program only creates enough plan order quantity to make sure there will be no negative inventory in the future. The program does not consider the Order Multiple or Economic Order Qty. When the user converts the plan order to actual order (requisition or production), the application will warn users about the order multiple, but the program does not warn users about the economic quantity order.

This feature will give the user the ability to choose whether he or she wants to consider the order multiple and/or economic order quantity when creating planned orders. A new option, Consolidate Plan Order Qty, has been added to the ATP Regen parameter screen:


2. Consolidate Plan Order Qty - Y/N default N or the value of Global Setup -> System -> Available to Promise-> 34. Default value for “Consolidate Plan Order Qty? if entered.

If this option is set to Y, the ATP regen will consider the order multiple or economic order quantity when generating planned orders if configured to do so. This option is only available if option 1. Create Plan Order is set to Y.

Three new Global Setup options have been added to support this feature. 

Global Setup -> System -> Available to Promise:


34. Default value for “Consolidate Plan Order Qty? Y/N Default N

This option allows the user to determine the default value of the field Consolidate Plan Order Qty on the ATP Regen screen parameter screen.

35. Consolidate Plan Order Qty by Order Multiple?   Y/N/A Default Y

This option allows the user to choose if item's order multiple should considered when calculating the plan order qty. The options are Y=Yes, N=No and A=Always. When the ATP Regen is run with consolidation, the program will "borrow" inventory from next planned order to make up for the extra plan order quantity needed to meet the order multiple or the economic order quantity. If this option is set to Y, the extra amount that was borrowed will be rolled back from the last planned order once the cutoff date is reached. If this option is set to A, the borrowed amount will not be rolled back.

36. Consolidate Plan Order Qty by Economic Ord Qty? Y/N/A Default Y

This option allows the user to choose if item's economic order quantity should considered when calculating the plan order qty. The options are Y=Yes, N=No and A=Always.  See description above for the Y and A option.

The following table shows how the roll back will occur depending on how the Global Setup options are configured.

Example: Item# 0 358 365 0041
Order Multiple = 120 
Economic Order Qty = 240

   ..

As you can see in the above example, the LP quantity in 5/6/16 for 180 is not a multiple of Order Multiple 120, and did not exceed Economic Order Qty 240, so we make it 240 by borrowing 60 from future positive plan order, this logic goes on, so on and so forth, until the last positive plan ATP transaction for this item is exhausted. So it is possible that the last positive plan ATP record is not a multiple of order multiple, nor exceeds the economic quantity order; simply we exceed positive plan record to consolidate if the options are set to Y and the quantity borrowed is rolled back. If the options are set to A, the rollback would not occur.
