This window is accessible from the MRP Order Options Menu which is on either the MRP Purchase Order Recommendations window or MRP Work Order Recommendations window.

The Basic and Costs pane shows the part and some basic cost and quantity data. You can click on the Update Costs button to recalculate current costs using a single-level cost calculation.

The What-If Planning pane contains an area for planning variables in which you can change values and see the results projected within the What-if block on the right.

The following un-stored values are calculated as shown:

If you click on the Save What-if button, any changes you have made to Stock Rotation, Minimum Level, Lot Size, Lead Time, Minimum Order Quantity and Re-Order Level will be saved in the part master record. Clicking on Revert, closes the window without any datafile changes.

The Purchase History pane of the window contains a list showing Purchase History.
