Product Planning Table - forward scheduling and entry of planned orders


we are using the product planning table (PPT) to enter planned orders manually from an external system.

The issue we face is that we need to use forward scheduling but the PPT does not support entry of planned orders with forward scheduling, the row "pl ordes..." is greyed out = not ready for input. I was searching on that issue and found out that the reason was the strategy setting = forward scheduling.

Now my question is: is it really not possible to enter planned orders with strategy forward?

and another question: if there is demand in particular day, e.g. purchase requisition placed on Monday 3.8. and time 12:00, and I enter manually planned order, the system uses this time 12:00 as the required time and schedules backwards the planned order. But we would like the order to be placed from the end day of that day, 23:59:59. What I would have to do to make the sytem not consider the demand on that day. Why, cause the purchase requistions are automatically placed at 12, and once wecreate the pl orders the logistics team will reschedule them for the whole week.

thank you in advance for all hints!

best regards,

Hi Pilvi,

You have to choose chart Production view: Periodic. In this view you have access to enter values and then if you double click in the order you can change the start date of the order.
