MRP Area and Collective/Individual RequirementsT

Hello all,

This is how the setup of mine looks like:

1. Parent/BOM Header Material is set with Strategy group: 50. Procurement Type is : F and Special Procurement Type is : 30 (Subcontracting).

2. The subcontractor used for to procure the Header material is created as an MRP area and this one is assigned to the component.

3. Component Material setup: MRP area is enabled.

Now coming to the issue

#1. When component is set with 'Individual/Collective Requirement = 2.

I've got few VSE requirements for the Header Material, when run MRP 'subreqs' are generated for the component material at the subcontractor MRP area. Components, when put to planning creates planned orders (convertible). Well and good. no issues.

#2. When component is set with 'Individual/Collective Requirement = 1.

This setting literally pushes the subreq's out from the subcontractor MRP area to plant MRP area.

Why does this happen ? Can any one help me understand this logic.

    Hello Rahul

    Your system is working as designed. See the answer below from question 3 of the FAQ note 550844?:

    The strategies of the make-to-order planning can be used only in the plant MRP area. Therefore, individual customer segments are always in the plant MRP area even if a storage location that refers to a storage location MRP area is assigned in the sales order. You cannot plan individual customer segments in the MRP area.
