General

The number of disk icons indicates the number of planned orders to firm.

Setup

Select the setup options for firming planned orders.

Batch processing lets you run a job that requires a large amount of computer power on another, preferably faster, computer.

Microsoft Dynamics AX must be configured as a batch processing. You can configure the batch executor on the Basic menu, under Periodic, Batch, Processing.

Field

Description

Update marking

Update item references between orders when planned orders are firmed. Select from these options:

  • No – No inventory marking is performed.

  • Standard – Inventory marking is updated according to the pegging information, if it is possible. Item reference fields on the relevant orders are updated when order quantities are fulfilled.

    Example

    • A production order quantity and sales order quantity are the same. The item reference fields on both orders reference each other.

    • A production order fulfills a sales order, and there is remaining quantity on the production order. The item reference fields on the sales order are updated with the production order. However, the production order is not updated.

  • Extended – Inventory marking is updated as with the option Standard. However, item reference fields on the relevant orders are updated regardless of any remaining quantity.

    Example

    • A production order fulfills a sales order, and there is remaining quantity on the production order. The item reference fields on both orders are updated as long as no other sales orders point to the remaining quantity.

      NoteNote

      This option is useful, for example, when firming planned orders that are subproduction orders.
