Create Demand with no SO

Craig,
In that case, just uncheck the 'process mrp' checkbox for your 'top level' R&D part & you won't be pestered with 'cancel job' messages daily.

Thanks Rob,

How MRP would respond is what was concerning me.

We are trying to figure out how to process jobs for our R&D department.
There typically is no sales order to create demand for the materials.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to create demand for a single item
without creating a sales order?
Thanks,
Craig
"Make to Stock" ?

We are trying to figure out how to process jobs for our R&D department.
There typically is no sales order to create demand for the materials.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to create demand for a single item
without creating a sales order?
Thanks,
Craig

You could:

- Just open a Job

Or

- Make an entry in your Master Production Schedule (Production Management |
Material Requirements | Gen Ops)

Sorry for the stupid question. For some reason I had it in my head
that you had to have a stocking level driving the demand to build for
stock. I will test before I post next time... ;-)

Set yourself (your company's R&D/Engineering and or sales group) up as a customer and enter the demand as a Forecast.

Better yet (and adhering to the K.I.S.S. principle), make your R&D part a non-MRP part - and just enter a one time job to fulfill the qty & dates communicated from the R&D team. (Making non-MRP will prevent needless MRP exceptions it sounds like you are trying to avoid by creating a balancing demand).

If you must track it, give it a significant Job Number prefix by selecting the next new job number & sticking and "RD" in front of it (or whatever is inutitive for your company culture).

You could also assign a project number to it (even if you aren't integrating with MS Project) and just write a simple BAQ & dashboard to keep track of these type of jobs. (That could also be done if using a significant job number prefix.)
