My company has recently been involved in a fire. Most of the parts that
customers require are truly in arrears.

I know I can rearrange the due dates, but this is no small task to do
properly. Lead times have been setup correctly.

I am a bit confused at to what the problem with MRP is and I am not
convinced that a report is what you need.  We use part routings and we
have 'child' and 'parent' parts and MRP works just fine for us.

I would suggest that maybe you need to look at the dates on your sales
orders because if it is set to soon then MRP will call for everything at
once.  Also, it might be worth while checking the lead times on your
child/parent parts.

        Has anyone written a report that looks at the MRP explosion, and
        an intelligent view of what needs to be actioned?

        We use part routings extensively, and it may take as long as
6-12 weeks
        to manufacture child parts from materials, before we can issue
        child parts into the parent assemblies.

        We typically look at the Planned Orders report but then have to
        the information it is giving. Our delivery requirements are such
        the MRP explosion can sometimes ask for us to order material,
        child parts, and issue top level parts all in one go. An
        report would only recommend actions at the appropriate level. 

        I.e. If material was available, but the child parts had not been
        then the report would recommend we issue the child parts, but
not the
        parent assembly.

        If nobody has anything suitable then please let me know if you
would be
        interested in such a report. It would be more worthwhile writing
        report if others can benefit as well. I can more or less
determine what
        I need to do to get the report working.

        Kind regards,

        Justin Lee
