Planned Order: Start Date in Past
I have a question about planned orders (Order Type - VP) with start date in past. As per the configuration (MRP parameters and OPU5) setup we don't allow planned orders to have their start date in past. This works good on planned orders created for the make to stock(VSF) scenario. Whereas the same doesn't work on planned orders created for the material with strategy group - 52 (Requirement Type - VSE).
Is this something that is very much common ?
Note: I know these orders aren't real and would need a sales order to trigger production or procurement but do we have any setup to switch these orders back to forward scheduling.
Thanks in advance.

It could be even possible using a BAdI, but I would not recommend that.
Changing the date of the planned order would affect the PIR consumption when the sales order is created. That means, during the creation of the sales order, system would not find the VP planned order assigned to the PIR and it could lead to inconsistencies on your system.
