Are you sure, when I tested this in early access it did. MRP deletes all
unfirm jobs.(Your case the old revision), It then consumes the forecast and
creates new jobs to meet this. (In your case grabbing the new revision) You
may need to unapprove the old revision, I'm not sure. The only down side I
found is that it will eat up job numbers because if it creates a 1000 jobs
and you firm up job 900, when it deletes unfirm and starts creating again it
starts at 901 and does'nt reuse 1-900.

Our testing has shown this doesn't work. It apparently does
not look at BOM/routing changes, only sales order/forecast/
mps changes.
