A planning suggestion is made when the Calculate Plan function is run on the Requisition Worksheet. To determine from where the demand came and to help prioritize the planning, run the Get Primary Demand function to populate several fields on the Requisition Worksheet with the document information that is reserved for the planning line.
After the Calculate Plan function is run, choose Order Tracking > Get Primary Demand on the Actions menu on the Requisition Worksheet.
The Primary Demand information is helpful, for example, if the line is reserved for a Production Order Component and the Production Order is reserved to a Sales Order. The Purchasing Manager can set a filter on the most important customers in the Primary Demand Customer No. field to help determine the first planning to prepare.
The Reserved for field provides a lookup of the reservation entry but it cannot be filtered. Filtering is available on all Primary Demand fields.
The Primary Demand function is also accessible on purchase orders. On the Actions menu, choose Functions > Get Primary Demand to populate the primary demand fields on the purchase order line.
