Inventory Status Number
The Inventory Status is a calculated field that highlights the urgency of the manufacturing order.
The cells have a background color that can be green, orange or red. Sorting
the manufacturing orders using the Inventory Status column (red ones first) allows the planner to
immediately focus on the manufacturing orders that should be treated first.
criticality number
The criticality is a read-only field, calculated by the planning engine.
It represents an indication of the slack time in the usage of the manufacturing order.
A criticality of 0 indicates that the manufacturing order is on the critical path of one or more demands.
Higher criticality values indicate a delay of the manufacturing order will not immediately impact the shipment of any demand.
A criticality of 999 indicates a manufacturing order that isn’t used at all to meet any demand.
Note that the criticality is independent of whether the customer demand will be shipped on time or not.
delay Duration
The delay is a read-only field, calculated by the planning engine.
It compares the end data of the manufacturing order with the latest possible end date to ship all demands it feeds on time.
