In which situation the lotsize method and Period type change?

Hi Experts,

I have a doubt regarding the changes takes place in lotsize method and period type in the lotsize tab of MAT1.

1. Under what circumstances the above two fields get change?

2. If you maintain the lotsize method as periodic lotsize and period type as D,then you can see when you change the MRP controller in ECC the lotsize method will be changed to lot by lot in APO.Why this is happening?

Best Regards,

Ayaskant

    Hi,

    First check when you are changing the MRP controller in ECC, what is the lot size in ECC ?

    Hi,

    The common ECC & APO parameters have to be maintained through the execution system ECC. So, no need to do duplicated entries.

    For this reason the ECC's parameters will overwrite the APO's parameters (in your case lot size parameters).

    The MRP controller will not influence the lot size parameters!

    Thanks.

      Hello,

      A solution could be to create a lot size profile on APO side with desired APO's parameters. On this way the lot size parameters will not be overwritten during the master data update.

      Thanks.
