Quota arrangement

I am working on quota arangement,in OMEQ i have created 1,2,3.

1 is PO,Schedule line

2 is PO,Schedule ,PR & Planned order

3 is PO,Schedule ,PR,Planned order & MRP

MD02 i am simulating & seeing the results.

If i assign value either 1 or 2 in in Purchasing view the quota arrangement values the PR is created only for single vendor,but when i assign value 3 in Purchasing view the quota arrangement is working well & the PR is created for 2 different vendors as specified in MEQ1

I want to know why the quota arrangement is not triggered wen value 1 & 2 is assigned & is triggerred when value 3 is assigned.

I have no OPEN PR,PO,Planned order or stocks in the system when simulating this scenario

    Hello Murugan

    On transaction MD02 you are running MRP, therefore, the quota arrangement will only be considered with the option 3 defined on the material master, which also includes MRP.

    I wrote the following document about the most frequent issues in this source determination:

    MRP: Vendor is not selected and general problems on source determination

    Two types of quota arrangements exist-Allocation quota vs Splitting quota.

    Your example of proposals across two vendors are referring to the second piece which works only with MRP with the setting in lot size.

    So it should work only with option 3 you have maintained. Option 1 and 2 works for allocation quota.

    • Murugan, Any manually created pur req should follow allocation logic. Also if you have a lot size that does not have the splitting quota field set ON, a MRP run also should work on allocation logic only ('per vendor' in allocation and not 'across vendors' as in splitting'.

      Did see a document published by a member here in the same forum on the quota arrangement/usage recently. You can search the document section to learn more on the same. Thanks.
