How to “permanently” delete new planned orders?
Your company insists on fixing planned orders, to try to
keep a stable, six-month plan.

But you still get new planned orders generated
in-between the fixed ones. You thought that you would get exception messages to
pull in all the fix planned orders before new ones are generated. You need to
“permanently” delete the new planned orders and leave only the fixed ones.
Two ideas which you can they apply to the scenario:
1) In OPPQ, exclude firm planned orders from rescheduling.
This will add a rescheduling exception to the planned orders, and you could
filter/report that way.
For example, if you discovered that the rescheduling horizon
was only 100 days, you can made it 999. Now the fixed planned orders are all
being rescheduled and no new planned orders are created “in between” the fixed
2) Convert planned orders into production orders. Then you
can look at production orders as your fixed plan, and ignore planned orders.
Deleting planned orders will be a short joy, as soon as you
run MRP (assuming you do...) they will be recreated.
