The third step of my agile planning routine will be to calculate moving demand dates while including my planning lines to see the impact on the sales orders and take immediate discussion with the sales people.

Let’s see this in Business Central. This is my quick journal I’ve just updated the immediate purchase receipt date that I would believe we could make and now I’m suggesting to move demand dates and I can’t trigger on inventory and this will calculate bottom-up and figuring out which sales order I will have to move and production orders as well of course based on the purchase supplies my immediate purchase suggestions and when I scroll down to my sales orders which will be in the end because it’s calculating bottom-up I can look at the sales order dates out here and I can see maybe that here on all my sales orders it needs to move or suggest to move one of them from April 10 till June 8 and that seems quite a long time.

So, I’ll have to talk to my sales people and ask them if this is okay or what they would suggest and maybe they would say this is too long some of them might be okay but some of them it’s too long period not to ship.

So, we need to do something and figure out how we can make it better than this.

So, this is the third step to calculate the consequences on the sales orders.
