Hi

This concept is used for master production schedule items . Which are A class and any planning change for these components might affect company adversely .

Now this is provision to lock or restrict the plan from changing .

Depending upon your setting in material master m1, m2 , m3 etc and planning time fence it will firm the planning proposal and any new requirement will be shifted at the end of the planning time fence .

In MD04 you can see the proposals created and shifted at the end of planning time fence . ( depending on your settings )

IN Simple words it is time within which no automatic changes will be made and your MPS planned will be saved .

If satisfied , please reward and close .

Hi,

We can protect the system from any automatic changes in master planning during MRP, we can use Planning time fence. This is mainly used for Master schedule items.

There are many MRP types available with planning time fence. Each MRP type is having different functionalities. For MPS items M0,M1,M2,M3,M4 and for MRP items P1,P2,P3,P4 are available.

Within this planning time fence, periodic lot size will not work.

Hi

In simple words planning time fence is the time bucket that you decide for your planning in which the plan cannot be changed.

Hi,

Planning Time fence is the time period in which there will be no change happens to the master plan.

Suppose if you define the Planning Timefence as 7 days, system will not plan/change the plan in this 7 days.

If there is a new requirement comesup, then how to consider the new requirement in the planning, when to create the planned order just out side the planning time fence or etc.. can be decide by the MRP Type P1,P2,P3 & P4.

At any time, manual changes can be done to the planned orders.

Hope this clarifies..
