The Shopping Cart Icon in the Production Module
Have you ever seen the following icon show up in your Production module windows and wondered what it was?
It may have appeared in an Order Planning window on the calendar within an order information block, or potentially you saw it in the eKanban Planning view beside a Scheduled Start date or in the order block on the calendar view below:
The appearance of this icon is linked to a Production module settings under the eKanban Settings, labeled “Show Possible Low Material / Early Start warning if Orders are scheduled more than this many days ahead of Due Date”.
The icon notifies users when an order has been scheduled a specified number of days ahead of its designated due date. The intent is to signal users to consider any resource and/or raw material constraints that the early order execution may create, and drive users to adjust the order scheduled date(s) closer to the due date if constraints are discovered.
