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.
