When I create a Quotation Request or a Purchase Order with the Scheduler tool then the order date, scheduled date and the expected date lie in the past (about two weeks). However when I create a Purchase Order from scratch myself then openerp takes todays' date.
Does somebody know how I get the automatic scheduler to also take todays date so the Request for Quotation is done correctly?
I have the same problem than you. In fact OpenERP uses production time and delivery time of product to schedule your purchase order in the past in order to have it ready for... today. This is really a pain because it does it even if you product need (sale in my case) is scheduled for 6 months later. I also tried to put some stock (10 in stock for a sale order of 11) . FYI I'm not using JIT module.
Well to summarize the MRP is not functionning for planning purchase according to your sale planning. A big miss actually.
The quotation order date is determined as follow :
Expected Date in the generated procurment order = Sale Order Date (on the SO) + Customer Lead Time (on the SO line, coming from the product) - Security Days (on the company).
Expected Date = Expected Date in the generated procurment order - Purchase lead time ( in your company definition ---> configuration tab ).
Quotation Order Date = Expected Date - Delivery lead time ( in your product definition ---> procurment tab --> choose any supplier ).
This is still a real problem. With this way we end up with a wrong sequence of purchase order date vs purchase order number. We are testing a "quick-fix" for this: the purchase order date is the date it's issued. It can never be in the past but it can never be in the future, also. If we send the purchase order for supplier immediately it must have the right date.
