In-House Production time and Routing Scheduling
What is the correct strategy for the following scenario: we have parts that have defined routings for the time to setup and produce the parts. Currently our system will date the order according to the routing time when MRP is run. Typically this means the system assumes the order will be run the day it is created. The load on our machines is typically 3-4 days and I would like to add this time to the dating of the order. I can add a GR Processing time to force the date later but this does not seem like the correct strategy. Is there some way I can link the dating of the order to the current workload on the machine? Or is there an appropriate field in the routing that could add a generic 3 days to the routing?
Many thanks for any assistance.
