Consider the production potential is available to promise
This module takes the potential quantities available for Products into account in the quantity available to promise, where the "Potential quantity" is the quantity that can be manufactured with the components immediately at hand. By configuration, the "Potential quantity" can be computed based on other product field. For example, "Potential quantity" can be the quantity that can be manufactured with the components available to promise.
Known issues / Roadmap
The manufacturing delays are not taken into account : this module assumes that if you have components in stock goods, you can manufacture finished goods quickly enough.
As a consequence, and to avoid overestimating, only the first level of Bill of Materials is considered. However Sets (a.k.a "phantom" BoMs) are taken into account: if a component must be replaced with a set, it's the stock of the set's product which will decide the potential.
If a product has several variants, only the variant with the biggest potential will be taken into account when reporting the production potential. For example, even if you actually have enough components to make 10 iPads 16Go AND 42 iPads 32Go, we'll consider that you can promise only 42 iPads.
Previous versions of this module used to let programmers demand to get the potential quantity in an arbitrary Unit of Measure using the context. This feature was present in the standard computations too until v8.0, but it has been dropped from the standard from v8.0 on. For the sake of consistency the potential quantity is now always reported in the product's main Unit of Measure too.
Possible improvements for future versions: * take manufacturing delays into account: we should not promise goods to customers if they want them delivered earlier that we can make them * Compute the quantity of finished product that can be made directly on each Bill of Material: this would be useful for production managers, and may make the computations faster by avoiding to compute the same BoM several times when several variants share the same BoM * add an option (probably as a sub-module) to consider all raw materials as available if they can be bought from the suppliers in time for the manufacturing.
