In a previous post we had a look at the ATP backwards supply fence. With this ATP will take into consideration delayed purchase orders. When we have a new order it might not be worth assuming that this delayed purchase order will be received today if you haven’t already received the stock. So you might want to give yourself some buffer for when the order will hopefully come in. This buffer would be the delayed supply offset time.
Keep in mind that in this walk through we set the fence at the accounts receivable parameter but you can specialize on an item level at the default order or site specific settings.
