SHIP SET LINES ARE SCHEDULED WHEN SAVED (Doc ID 1112728.1)

Symptoms

Customer is "make to order" so orders on hold or entered status must NOT be
scheduled - to avoid producing orders that may not materialize until later
(or never). 90% of customers require "ship complete", so ship sets default
from customer master.

Current functionality defaults ship set from customer master as desired, but
then on Save, lines are scheduled and thus visible to production prior to
booking of order (as confirmation of details) or release of credit check
failure hold. Production then sees the order immediately and begins
production.

The workaround is to MANUALLY remove the ship set (and any scheduled dates)
on such orders - there is a great potential for error with this process.

Changes

Support File Enhancement request: <Bug 4241385> - ship set lines are scheduled when saved.


The fix is included in  12.1.3 and higher.

Fix provides:
A new system parameter "OM:Auto Schedule Sets" is provided through this patch.
The value of the system parameter decides whether lines that are being added to a ship/arrival set will be scheduled automatically or not.

If the value of the system parameter "OM:Auto Schedule Sets" is set to "No",
lines that are part of a ship/arrival set need not necessarily be scheduled.
However, at any given point of time, all the lines in a ship/arrival set, will be either scheduled or unscheduled.

Instead, if the value of the system parameter "OM:Auto Schedule Sets" is set to "Yes" or not set at all, the existing behaviour, where "lines that are part of a ship/arrival set" need to be scheduled", will be retained.
