Under the Stack tab, there are two settings (also see figure 5):

Default Stack Status

Sets the default status of a stack, set to Preliminary or planned

Preliminary

  • Sets the default status of the stack to preliminary
  • When a stack is created and elements are placed on a stack, the preliminary delivery date will not be set on the elements
  • This enables the user to plan stacks ahead of time, wishing to set a preliminary delivery date

Planned

  • Sets the default status of the stack to planned
  • When a stack is created and elements are placed on a stack, the preliminary delivery date will be set on the elements
  • This should be used when a preliminary delivery date is to be set on the elements on a stack

Can Reverse Stack Status

  • It provides a possibility to disable the user from reversing the status of a stack, set to No to do so.

Under the Cast tab, there are eight settings (also see figure 6):

  • Production Planning

And then there are the Mandatory Cast Planning Conditions settings:
