Firming within MPS types


Hi all,

Referring to:

MPS types:

M0 = fixing type 0

M1 = fixing type 1...

"0 - Procurement proposals are not firmed automatically. No firming takes place with this firming type.

1-Procurement proposals within the planning time fence are firmed automatically as soon as their date is at least one day before the end date of the planning time fence. The date of new procurement proposals created in the planning time fence is moved to the end date of the planning time fence. As a result, these new procurement proposals are not firmed."

Can someone explain to me the "firming" issue?

If I run MPS say, once a week, and I want the next MPS run to generate planned orders considering the new situation, what kind pf MPS should I choose?
