The seventh step of my agile planning routine is to carry out actions from my quick journal, the planning journal, to purchase orders and production orders. And also to do master capacity planning if I’m running production.

Let’s look at this in Business Central. So, if this is my quick journal and the final supply for purchase and production I can see some of the lines here are purchase items, some of them are production items it could also have been a sample orders or transfer orders.

Now I need to carry out actions to the vendors to create the purchase orders here and send purchase orders to the vendor but I also need to do master capacity planning to make sure this puzzle based on production orders is possible.

And either I could carry out to firm planned orders or planned orders and then do the math or I could do it while having the lines in the planning worksheet.

Normally I would suggest that you carry out the lines to empty your planning journal so, it’s easier for you to do new calculations.

So, if possible carry out actions creating purchase orders and discussing whether to create planned or firm planned production orders for your master capacity planning if you’re doing that.

So, this is creating purchase orders then we open the purchase orders and send them to the vendors of course and we make the production people do the capacity planning.
