Here are some items we think are looking valuable in the NetSuite 2023.2 Release.

Supply Planning Lot Sizing Options for Minimum Order Quantity

NetSuite 2023.1 includes the following enhancements to supply planning features: A Minimum Order Quantity will be required for new planned orders that are generated by the planning engine. If you need more quantity, you can add the required amount to the minimum quantity.

This enhancement will apply to the following NetSuite features:

  • Item Location Configuration: A separate Lot Sizing options will be provided for Minimum Order Quantity.
  • Planned Purchase Orders: When you use the Minimum Order Quantity option, planned purchase orders will display a quantity greater than the minimum order quantity when the required quantity is greater than minimum order quantity. The quantity will be equal to the minimum order quantity when the required quantity is less than or equal to the minimum order quantity.

New Commit Plus Overage Feature in SuiteBilling

In 2023.2, SuiteBilling has a new feature, Commit Plus Overage. Companies can use Commit Plus Overage to charge prepayment for a contracted amount of usage at a specified rate. Then, if the customer uses more than the contracted amount, the additional usage is charged at an adjusted rate.

Project Plan Improvements

On project records, the Financial tab now shows the Project Revenue Recognition Summary information, which is visible when the Project Revenue Recognition feature is enabled. The summary information shows total revenue, recognized revenue, planned revenue, and a link to Revenue Arrangement. This improvement helps you find the respective revenue arrangement for the project. It provides more transparency, and with Suiteness in mind, it is surfacing basic Project Revenue Recognition data, along with the link to revenue arrangement in the Financial tab in the new Revenue Recognition sub-section.

The Project Plan Recalculation information is now displayed on the Project Plan subsection of the System Information tab. It shows the project plan recalculation data, such as the last project plan recalculation date and time, if the project plan is being recalculated, last project plan recalculation time, average project plan recalculation time, and project plan recalculation triggers. The System Information tab now shows the System Notes subtab. This subtab displays information about what has been changed within recalculation.
