System Profile "MSC: Include Postprocessing Lead Time When Planning For Make Orders" (Doc ID 1665435.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 12.1.3.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Can the use of system profile "MSC: Include Postprocessing lead time when planning for make orders" be made available in 12.1.3.7?  One has the need to be able to plan the completion of their Finished Good items one day prior to shipping needs. In an unconstrained plan, that plans at the day level, the entire day is allowed for completion of the work order for a finished good item. However, the shipping of that item is typically planned mid-day. Therefore, need to be able to plan the completion of the build of finished good items the day before the Scheduled Ship Date. This profile would allow one to do this. However, will be going live on 12.1.3.7, not 12.1.3.9, where this profile option was made available.
 

It appears that we have the functionality in VCP 12.1.3.8 to allow the mentioned requirement. In VCP 12.1.3.9, we introduced a new profile called "MSC: Include Postprocessing lead time when planning for make orders". It appears that one would need to be on VCP 12.1.3.9 in order to use this profile.  Asked Development if it is possible to get the functionality backported to VCP 12.1.3.7.  If so, needed to know if this profile can be backported to both vcp 12.1.3.7 and 12.1.3.8.
