Recalculate Stage Dates in Prod. Order
The production world is very fascinating and complicated. One of the common challenges is orchestrating many dependencies: components, quantities, sequence of stages, timeline, etc. When creating a production order containing multiple route stages, there might be cases where timeline of one route stage should be adjusted and subsequent route stages are affected accordingly. If the “Routing Date Calculation” in the production order is set to either “Start Date Forwards” or “End Date Backwards” SAP Business One allows you to adjust the dates of a specific route stage and apply the change to the subsequent route stages:
Mark the route stage from which the change in dates should apply and choose the following option from the context menu: “Recalculate Route Stages Dates”. If the “Routing Date Calculation” field is set to “Start Date Forwards” the dates of the highlighted route stage and the ones that follow will be recalculated accordingly. If the “Routing Date Calculation” field is set to “End Date Backwards” the dates of the highlighted route stage and the previous ones are recalculated accordingly.

Maya, thank you very much for this update.
Is it possible to set up, for instance "end date backwards" as default option for all new production orders?
I would require that when I execute MRP, it also takes into account required routing times, so production orders should start when required based on capacity. But, now what happens is that I execute MRP and all newly created production orders get as default method "start date", and no routing times are taken into account.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
