Safety Stock

If putting the queue time in affects your work center job scheduling,
you can link your material to a prior operation. If you don't have a
prior operation, you can create one, e.g. Receiving.

Try using "queue" hours in the workcenter for the first
operation. It works
O.K. for us on bar stock by putting 40 hours queue time on the
saw
workcenter.

When you generate suggestions for PO's and then generate the
actual
PO's from the suggestions, it uses the date that the job needs
to
start as a due date for the raw material order. Is there any
kind of
a tool in here that will add a "buffer" amount of days to this
due
date? I don't want raw material scheduled in here the day I
need to
run the job - we need a few days grace to allow for the
potential of
poor supplier performance. Can anyone offer suggestions of how
they
are handling this situation Please!!!
