How to define different planning horizons in Business Central?
If you have more than one person doing the planning for your company, I believe that you should define the different planning horizons because you need to be aware of who is in charge of what in the planning.
This is what happens in the video
This means you need to be sure what is the horizon for the detailed planning because their master planner couldn’t change the orders in the detailed planning phase on the detailed planning horizon.
So it’s super locked to the people doing detailed planning and likewise, on the master planning, the period spent for master planning should be owned by the people doing master planning, and of course, likewise on the long-term planning.
So you should define as a company, what is the different horizons, so you can know who owns the order suggestions and the requirements within each period. So this is just my examples 1 till 2 weeks, 2 weeks till 3 months, or 3 months and maybe up till 18 months depending on your longest lead times on your purchase items.
So you need to figure out what is the item that you have. The purchase item with the longest requirement period and you should plan so far ahead in the long-term planning.
