Enter the number of master scheduling iterations that you want performed during each master scheduling run. For each iteration, each intercompany company is scheduled according to the sequence that is defined in the Scheduling sequence field. A maximum of 30 iterations is possible.

First iteration

Select the master scheduling method to use for the first iteration. The options are as follows:

  • Regeneration – Deletes existing planned orders and generates new planned orders based on all known requirements.

  • Net change – Generates planned orders to cover only new or changed requirements that have occurred since the last master scheduling run. However, action and futures dates are updated for all requirements. This option is available only if you calculate a dynamic master plan.

  • Net change minimized – Generates planned orders, together with action and futures dates, to cover only new or changed requirements that have occurred since the last master scheduling run. This option is available only if you calculate a dynamic master plan.

Subsequent iterations

Select the master scheduling method to use for later iterations. The options are as follows:

  • Regeneration – Deletes existing planned orders and generates new planned orders based on all known requirements.

  • Net change – Generates planned orders to cover only new or changed requirements that have occurred since the last master scheduling run. However, action and futures dates are updated for all requirements. This option is available only if you calculate a dynamic master plan.
