E1: 34: Blanket Order Setup for MRP (P3411/R3411) (Doc ID 653093.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 28, 2023

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning - Version XE and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document will walk a user the step by step through the creation and release of a blanket order within either the MRP Detail Messaging (P3411) program or batch version (R3411) program. The screen prints below are from 9.0.

In 8.11 onward, the setup was changed. If not setup correctly, when processing an OP Message from the Detailed Message Review (P3411), which has a Blanket Order associated with it, the Purchase Blanket Release (P43216) screen does not pop-up and quantities cannot be released.


Any user that is releasing messages via P3411 or R3411 should be aware of the blanket order setup.
