Extended & Standard Option in Firming Form of Planned Orders

In planned order firming form, setup tab--Update marking--No, Standard & Extended. I would like to know, when to use and when NOT to use "Extended" and "Standard" options while firming the planned orders.

Please share your expertise. Thanks

  • It is basically linking supply and demand, the standard is at a pegging level of order to order, but extended ensures all elements are matched, so if you have purchase orders coming in for various production orders it gets marked line by line with extended, and if you have quality orders it creates (from memory) a quality order per requirement because if one element fails it needs to know which production order is impacted. The extended will split the inventory transaction to match supply and demand.

    Why do you even need it? If you need 100 and buy 100 you are balanced with marking set to No.

    Thank you for your response.
    we are using marking as NO all the time...but one user by mistake selected "Extended" while firming planned production orders so created production orders has a reference to existing open production orders. How to remove the created link between production orders.

    I am guessing you have run planning again and it does not see the reference.
    You can cancel the marking, but where are you seeign the reference?

    we didn't run planning again. I see the reference in the reference tab on production order details form. Its reserving the production order A (existing open order) which is the sub-assy to the prod order B (newly firmed). In such case, how to cancel the marking? I mean how to break the link between two orders? Pls advise.
