using MD04 or MD05


Hi,

I am trying to figure out which is the better report to use for a planner. I am thinking it would depend upon what the planner is trying to chase down. Since MRP list shows the result of the last MRP run, if the planner is looking to go after receipts with dates in the past (opening, start and finish) he would be better off looking at the stock/requirements list as there could be a newly created receipt in the MRP run a fe days back but today it shows as dates in the past. This is once instance I can think of. Are there any messages which are better off being reported off in MD04 rather than MD05 ?

Please dont ask me to read the online help as I have done so multiple times.

Thanks

    Hi GS,

    Its better to use MD04 as it contains all the current exceptions. MD05 contains past exceptions.

    Your choice is correct.

    Hi GS,

    Didn,t understand the meaning of the line "Are there any messages which are better off being reported off in MD04 rather than MD05 ?" Please clarify😊.

    Its true MD04 will show the report of last and latest MRP run as it is a static report. MD05 will show current stock requirement list and will change dynamically.

    As I know this two are the strongest and most informative report.

    From MD04 you can go to the details of the proposal (Lets say for a production order order no , reservation for the component, requirement dates can be viewed.

      what I meant is that if I wanted to tell a planner which is a better report to look at to do his job of working on exception messages which report would I ask him to look at MD04 or MD05. I think MD04 is better as it shows the latest stock, receipts and issues situation with more "up to date" exception messages. Am I right ?

      Thanks
