Purchasing Plan Upgrade

Purchasing Planning

Another big revamp! We have updated the purchase planning grid to align with much of what you saw in the new Demand Planning Grid.

This upgraded page features the cleaner look and design and improved performance you’ve seen in other upgraded pages. You’ll notice new KPIs, better search and filter functionality, and more! The page will automatically sort to ‘Purchase Recommended’ to give you a high-level look at what items need to be purchased to meet demand and required minimums. A details panel will show what jobs are driving purchase recommendations and show you the expected on-hand supply for a given item.

New Functionality and Notable Changes

A call out for ‘timing issues'. Specifically, this KPI looks for any item in which there’s incoming supply but the receive date is after the expected need date of the item based on the schedule.
