A Maintenance Job has been raised and firmed for a tool (this is set up as a resource), and the maintenance job has been scheduled with a start date 30/10 and a due date of 31/10. We have then run MRP with ‘Run Finite Scheduling during MRP calculation’ ticked (as the resource is set as Finite Capacity), and MRP has processed and planned an unfirm job for a part that has the tool as a resource. The operation start and due dates that have the tool as a resource has been planned to run over the same time as the Maintenance job, start date 29/10 and due date 31/10. As the tool is set as Finite Capacity, shouldn’t MRP plan the production job to run after/before the maintenance job?
What we expect:
A production job should be dependent on the maintenance schedule for a tool.
MRP should move a scheduled production job when a maintenance job is generated
MRP should only create a production job after a maintenance job is completed
What MRP is currently doing:
- A maintenance job (30/10 - 31/10) overlaps the production job (29/10 - 31/10) for the same tool.
Is there any way that we can set MRP to meet the expectations we mentioned above?
