Action Recommendation

After MRP refresh, recommendations are listed in the MRP List View – Recommendations list.

Recommendations are created based on the details of the demand that triggered it and the setup of the stock item.

If a recommendation contains all the information required, use this screen to action it. For example, a recommendation to create a new Purchase Order will require a supplier account to be set on the recommendation.

If everything is setup correctly there should be little or no need for a recommendation to be amended, but if details are missing or incorrect the Amend Recommendation screen allows for it to be reviewed and changed before it is actioned.

Once a recommendation contains all the information required, use this screen to action it.
