For example, Bob works in the Furniture Manufacturing company. Their organization follows the make to order production planning. On Monday, Bob received the Sales Orders for tables and chairs from different customers. So Bob has checked the production planning report to check the availability of the raw materials and he found that either table or chair can be manufactured with the available raw materials. Bob used the ‘based on’ filter to know which Finished Good order’s delivery date is earlier. He has found that he has to deliver the Table earlier so he has started working on it and his colleague has created the purchase order for raw materials which will be used to make chair.
Using the Production Planning Report, this report auto allocate the raw materials to the order once it’s available in the respective warehouse.
