The fifth step of the agile planning routine would be to bundle the purchase supplies per vendor per due date to be able to create realistic purchase orders, and we need to do that before step number six the final calculation of moving the dates.

Let’s look at this in Business Central. So, if this are my suggestion for new orders in here for purchase orders, I would filter per vendor looking at the specific vendor maybe this all for for the same vendor, and if I look at the dates here there might be some small differences or large differences and I need to figure out if I’m going to do one purchase order to purchase order etc.

But I’m not going to make one purchase order from April 9 and then April 11 and April 15 so, I’ll have to figure out how to bundle this in the best way and maybe I’ll just take the last date in here and add this, and this way I’m looking per vendor the same here on the last vendor has two different dates.

So, if possible I like to bundle the dates and of course this has consequences when I recalculate the orders the demand orders to move and therefore I have to be aware on this process this is what I’m actually going to create to the vendors and therefore I need to do this bundle first.
