Planning with different procurement types


Hello Gurus,

Is it possible to plan with different procurement types (E and F or X) with MRP for the future?

Two scenarios:

1. In-house production of a product for the next 3 months and from March 2015 external procurement. Can we tell MRP to create PReqs instead of planned orders from March 2015 automatically?

2. If there's a simultaneous mixture between E and F (I guess we would need X then) can we tell MRP to create 40% planned orders and 60% Preqs (via quota arrangement or source list, etc..)?

Many thanks in advance!

Martin

    Hi Martin,

    I think Quota Arrangement can be a good solution for both requirements. To split the procurement proposal quantity, use the percentage. To set the effective date, use the validity period for the Quota Arrangement.

    Here are some good documents on this topic:

    1. Functionality of Quota Arrangement in Production
    2. Limit Procured Quantity Per Period Using Quota Arrangement

    Regards,

    Julian

    You have to do Quota arrangement settings for this.

    Create lot size with Split Quota selected.

    Create Quota using MEQ1. Validity date must be used to differentiate between March'15 and Beyond.

    Assign Quota arrangement in MRP 2 view of Material Master.
