Our customer (GKN Poland) is interested in the Supplier Milk Run functionality. However, they are currently using the supplier shipping schedule module, and only send out the planning schedule (type 5) to the suppliers which might be a problem, as I understand from the following statement in the Scheduled Order User Guide (2019 EE):
' This functionality supports both discrete purchase orders and two types of supplier schedules:
• The traditional type 4 (combined planning/shipping) supplier schedules
• Type 6 supplier shipping schedules offered by the PRO/PLUS Supplier Shipping Schedules module'
Question is, is there a way to still work with the supplier milk run functionality, or some kind of work around possible?
All help is welcome!
