Sage 100 Inventory Requirements Planning: Required Date for generating Purchasing Orders


How is the Required Date determined for Purchase Orders generated from Sage 100 Inventory Requirements Planning (IRP)?


Date Required – This field is the date the material is required to fulfill the demand (Sales Order or another work ticket). Vendor Lead times defined in Item Vendor Maintenance are used to determine the Date Required.

NOTE: The date required field is determined based on the following hierarchy:

  1. Date Required field in the Materials tab of Work Ticket Entry
  2. Production Due Date of the Work Ticket Step the item is assigned to in Work Ticket Entry
  3. Production Due Date of the Work Ticket on the Schedule tab in Work Ticket Entry
  4. Sales Order Promise Date
