Purchase Scheduling

In this article, we are going to show purchase of item “X” to be used for the production of item “AX”. In the Item table, set up the purchase of item “X”. Switch the Auto-replenish flag to Yes and set Obtain method to Purchase. Set Purchase lot size Min/Max to 1000. Update the Purchase lead time to 2 days. Since Purchase lead time is usually not displayed in the basic mode, right click the column setting and choose the Purchase lead time to be displayed.
