MRP Generation enhancement for items using Manual reorder method

Starting with the October 2019 product update for Sage 500 version 2019 we have made a change to MRP processing user interface. As shown in the screenshots in the Material Requirements Planning Generation form’s Options tab we have replaced in the Selection Options frame one existing checkbox with two checkboxes.

Before October 2019 product update:

Starting with the October 2019 product update:

MRP uses the inventory management module’s replenishment system. The IM replenishment system does not process inventory items that have a reorder method of “Manual”. However MRP picks up such items in its processing. This led to a situation where MRP selection would pick up items for which it cannot generate actual orders. For those who do not wish to include items that cannot yield an actual order, this change allows a user to skip inventory items that are configured for manual replenishment, while still allowing the previous behavior. By checking both checkboxes on the new version, you will get the same behavior as the previous version. Both checkboxes are checked by default. Should you choose to keep both checkboxes checked and the system detects that manual items are included in a planned order run, the system will now display a new warning message on the Messages tab of the MRP Requirements Planning Inquiry indicating the item must be manually replenished.
