It’s possible for me to set production order status and production order component status as filters when running the Reverse Planning, and that can be useful for choosing on which demand and supplies to fulfill or what to plan upon.

So, for instance now if I’m planning on both firm plant and release production order, and I’m running the plan, I will see that because I tried this, the item number 1200 and 1100 will be critical and go below zero inventory, so, I need to handle those and do something.

Whereas if I have made the same planning but only looked upon release production order, and I might use this if I want to check if my release production order actually has demands and supplies which are okay, meaning my production in real life is not running okay.

And this because as I can see here, the two items are not critical, so, I don’t need to do anything according to the released items right now.

It’s possible for them to pick to everything for those two items, but if I include the firm plant orders, they won’t be.

So, that’s why I can use this as flexible input.

I could also set them to know if I want to plan on, for instance, transfer orders and sales orders first, and then production demands and supplies later on.

That’s why we can flex on those fields.
