Keeping an Unfirm Job

In Job Status Maintenance, what if we have a Job suggestion we don’t want to “Firm” at this given time? It may be needed soon, but we have other jobs to run first. What are our options?

You could simply ignore the job suggestion at this time. As long as the demand is still there the next time you run MRP, it’ll show up on your List sheet. Just be aware that the Job number could differ from that last entry. All you need to do is make sure that the part in focus is in the list to make a decision whether to make it “Firm”.
