How to set minimum order quantity for different vendor in APO


Hello expert,

I want to maintain minimum order quantity for different vendor for one matrial in APO.  In ECC, this can be done in info record or quota. But I didn't find the field MOQ in transport lane or quota in APO.  Is there anyone know about this?

    Hi Alan,

    MOQ is the Minimum Lot size in APO, you can maintain that in the Product master / Tlane ( lot size tab - quantity and date determination). you can also maintain rounding value ,if you are using heuristics or optimization.

    Dear both,

    did that really work?

    as far as I know the PP/DS heuristic runs in the receiving location (= your production plant), and considers lot sizes from taht Mat-Loc-combination. If you now create one Mat-Loc-combination for each vendor (which is the delivering site), the heuristic will

    a) create a stock transfer order (instead of a 'normal' purchase requisition)

    b) not consider minimum/maximum lot size quantites or round value from these new vendor locations

    Is there any other solution?
