Epicor 10.1 Projecting Sales Order Shortages

+1 Likes (1)

One quiet but powerful feature added to Epicor ERP at version 10.1 is a new Projected Sales Order Shortages dashboard.  This dashboard derives its data from the powerful Multi-Level Pegging feature.  This data is compiled as part of the MRP process but even without the MRP module it is still available to be generated.

This function allows you to see where Sales Order may be short of materials, whether they are supplied from manufacturing or are purchased. It can also look at orders and order lines where the supply is available but won’t be available in time to meet the order or line required by date.  It can present alternative sources of supply where you can ‘rob Peter to pay Paul’ if necessary to juggle customer requirements.

      I believe you need to run either the MRP, or if you don’t want to run a full MRP, the Multi-Level Pegging process (which does not require the MRP license)
