Consignment PIR not selected on PR during MRP


I'm facing a problem where the consignment PIR is not selected in PR during PR creation through MRP run.

Sourcing happens correctly and the supplier number in Source List is assigned to fixed vendor.

However the info-record field is blank.

Surprisingly, if I do 'Assign Source of Supply' for the same PR through ME52N, the PIR is picked up and assigned to the PR.

I saw this one thread in the forums and I think its the same issue but there is no solution.

Has anyone encountered this problem and are there any corrections?

    I am actually confused what problem you really have

    you are describing a problem of not finding the info record, but link to content where it is talked about delivery time issues.

    I would recommend to read OSS note 550014 - FAQ: Source determination in material requirements planning which explains what you can do for the delivery time .

    and now to your statement " the supplier number in Source List is assigned to fixed vendor."

    This had never worked in MRP, and I probably answered it already more than 50 times. Fixed vendor is for manual source determination, MRP indicator in the source list is used for source determination in the MRP run. The fixed source is not considered in MRP run. Further you must not have several sources with MRP indicators in one source list for the same validity time

    • Thanks for your response.

      I have only one source and its marked MRP relevant.

      "......supplier number in Source List is assigned to fixed vendor." - My mistake - this should read supplier number in Source List is assigned to fixed vendor field in the PR."

      Does this make more sense now.

      I think my problem and the link I provided to planned delivery time is related to the same root cause. If SAP is not updating the requistion with a PIR, its not reading the PIR info and hence planned delivery time from PIR.

      As for he OSS, I read the question and its answer

        1. Why does the system not use the expected planned delivery time from the info record?

        The MRP group in material master has the flag 'Scheduling according to purchasing info record or agreement' maintained for plant code used

        Source List entry is correct and matches the special procurement key.

        What surprised me the most that although MRP picks up the correct source, it does not look at the PIR for that source does not populate the PIR in the requsition. However, manual source determination considers the PIR populates the PIR number

      Hello Saurav,

      Can you check if you have maintained special procurement type 'Consignment' in MRP2 view of the material master?
