How to precisely set Min Max Supply and Demand Cut-off Dates to prevent duplicate requisitions (Doc ID 2492399.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 Cut-off date is considered as the greatest or maximum date of Min-Max planning against which the available supply and demand are considered.

Supply cutoff date :
On Order is the sum of open purchase orders, purchase requisitions, internal
requisitions, internal orders, and work in process jobs scheduled for receipt on
or before the supply cutoff date.

Demand cutoff date :
Open Demand is the sum of unreserved sales orders, inventory reservations,
including reserved sales orders, account issue move orders, and WIP
component demand scheduled for issue on or before the demand cutoff date

Common instructions issue a general catch-all blanket statement, "Set Supply and Demand Cut-off Dates to be at least 4 months into the future". This exists as a legitimate guideline; however this broadbrush logic does not take into account client-specific data or situations, but lacks the precision to allow clients to fine-tune their cut-off dates to be tailored to their items. This document adds the kind of clarity that clients are looking for in order to use the Application to best fit their own unique processing demands of their business.
