      We are looking for a way to add a schedule buffer of 10 days from when raw materials are received to when MXAPS schedules the production order.


      Item ABC is set to be received to the company on 10/12/2023 which is part of a BOM component of item XYZ.  We would like MXAPS to schedule the production of item XYZ to start 10 days from the item ABC receipt date of 10/12/2023, which would be 10/22/2023.  Currently, MXAPS will schedule the production order the same day the raw material is received.

        Hi Todd,

        MxAPS uses the expected receipt date on the purchase order line to determine when those items are available for use. That means you can make use of the inbound warehouse handling time to delay when those items are actually considered available for use. Barring using that base BC functionality you would require special handling in an extension as the base product only uses the expected receipt date to control this.
