Master scheduling uses coverage settings to calculate item requirements.
You can specify coverage settings in several ways:
Specify coverage settings for a coverage group
You can create a coverage group that contains settings for all products that are linked to the coverage group. Click Master planning > Setup > Coverage > Coverage groups.
You can link a coverage group to a product. Use the Coverage group field in the Item coverage form. If you do not link a coverage group to a product, the program uses the General coverage group that is specified in the Master planning parameters form as the default.
Specify coverage settings for a product
You can create coverage settings for a specific product. Click Inventory and warehouse management > Periodic > Forecast > Entry > Items. Select the product, on the Action pane, on the Plan tab, in the Coverage group, click Item coverage to open the Item coverage form.
If the product is linked to a coverage group, you can override the coverage group settings by using the Override field.
Specify coverage settings for a product by using a wizard
The wizard is a step-by-step guide to help you set up the primary item coverage parameters. In the Item coverage form, click Wizard to open the Item Coverage Wizard.
Specify coverage settings for a dimension group
Click Product information management > Common > Released products. On the Action pane, on the Product tab, in the Set up group, click Dimension groups. Select the dimension group, and select the Coverage plan by dimension field to create the coverage settings for a product dimension group or a storage dimension group.
