E9.1 Post Work Order Completion "Release" Date for Allocation

Here is our scenario. A finished good requires a test after the work order is completed - so maybe a five day micro test. Our production planners want a way so they can plan the completion date to be before the testing is done. For instance, a work order is scheduled for barbeque sauce. Currently, MRP prompts for a completion date of let's say 7/31. However, the 3-day Spice-O-Meter test needs to be applied after completion. So, if we follow MRP's completion date, we will be three days late in getting the product completed. We are trying to figure out if there is a date field on the Item Branch or something we need to do to the work order to ensure we have the right number of days for testing included automatically - today, we are relying on spreadsheets and tribal knowledge.

You can use the Leadtime MFG (F4102.LTME) to tell MPS to backup the start date of the work order. The value in this field will be the number of working days is backs up the start date. If you need time for a three-day test, use the value 3 and it will move the start date of the work order back three working (not calendar) days, and your production planners get happy.

I think what you want is called Receipt Routing for MFg Work Orders.
Here's an excerpt from the Oracle's Documentation:

11.2.1.2 Managing Completions That Use Receipts Routing​

You set up a receipt routing in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement system by specifying a unique code name for routing receipts in the UDC table 43/RC (Route Codes) and an operation name in UDC 43/OC (Operation Codes). You enter a Y in any of the update fields in the Receipt Routing Definition program (P43091) to cause the system to update the appropriate field in the Item Location File table (F41021) when an item arrives at the specified operation.

The system considers items to be on-hand only at the end of a receipt routing. You must enter a Y (Yes) in the Update O/H field for the system to assign the last operation to a routing. The system assigns a Y in the Pay field on the operation to which a Y is assigned in the On-Hand field.

To specify whether the system directs items through a receipt routing, you must assign a routing to each item. You assign receipt routings to items based on item or supplier relationships or both.

For manufactured items, the supplier must be -99999999. However, the system generates the supplier when you set the processing options for Work Order Completion in the Supplier/Item Relationships program (P43090). The processing options automatically sets the manufactured items to supplier -99999999 and prevents the system from displaying a supplier field in the program.

To locate the status of the receipt's routing, use the Status Inquiry program (P43250). To view the details of a step, access the Receipt Routing Movement form. When you use receipt routing in completions, you will not see the completed quantity updated to the F4801 table until the receipt routing has completed.

Thanks for the reply - it would still, however, keep the completion date the same, right? That's our challenge. We put in work orders 30 days ahead of schedule and then arrange production as needed based on need. So, I have 10 work orders for different products that need to be completed the last week of July, 1 per shift. The order of these depends on need. However, the work orders with testing, even though may not be the most critical today, might need to be run today in order to be tested when they are really needed.

Great information - is there a way to build this into the lead time?

Check out the Manufacturing Effective Days in Item Branch (in the Lot Processing tab). This should back the due date up by the number of days specified, which you can then use for your testing.

Lot Effective Default Days
Alias: LEDD Which is manufacturing effective days as DSauve said. This will update the lot master so that for effective days. Also you can default a default lot code say T and release after testing, kind of micro hold
