When I calculate critical items or move order dates, I can include purchase orders, all purchase order or just release ones or even no purchase order and I can include purchase quotes.

And of course, if I’m including all purchase orders, I will expect as much supply as possible to get stuck.

Even if I included purchase quote, it would be even more.

Whereas if I deselect the open purchase order, so, I only want to include the release purchase orders, it’s much more conservative because that means, for instance, if I’m only getting confirmed purchase orders and I use that to when I’m releasing, it will be much more conservative.

So, now I have less demand taking into account, which will make more item criticals.

On the other hand, if I include purchase quotes, it will be even less critical.

So, it’s a matter of adjusting levels of critical items that you’re looking for.
