BOM Calendar - Is Your MRP Bucket Half Full?

Oracle Master Resource Planning (MRP) uses ‘bucketing’ to help keep control of forecasts for demand for a particular product. The forecasts estimate future demand for items using any combination of historical, statistical, and intuitive forecasting techniques.

The forecasts can be gathered together in Time Buckets. You can forecast with daily buckets in the short term, weekly buckets in the midterm, and periodic buckets in the longer term.

Do you you need to manage your buckets in Calendar Months? What if you expect a bucket to ‘end-date’ on March 31 – but if March 31 is a Wednesday, and the Workday Calendar for “March” runs until Friday April 2? Then requirements from April 1 and 2 will be included in the “March” bucket. Some customers and users want to more closely link the BOM Workday Calendar to the common Calendar in use around the world.

If you would like to manage your buckets in Calendar months, we invite you to vote on Idea 'MRP Bucketing Should Happen For The Monthly BOM Calendar' in the EBS Logistics Communities.



You can also review note, It Is Not Possible To Setup Calendar For Monthly Bucketing (Doc ID 2027380.1).

If you'd like more information on using EBS Communities for Enhancement Requests (Ideas), see note, Oracle E-Business Suite Product Enhancement Request to My Oracle Support Community FAQ (Doc ID 1584210.1).

The power to request enhancements is in your hands, so don't forget to vote if you'd like MRP bucketing to happen for a monthly BOM Calendar.
