Planned Order lying outside Planning time fence though Pld ord date and end of PTF is same in MD04

Dear SAP Gurus,

I found one planned order whose req date is 29.06.2015 (generated by MRP for a Customer Order) lying outside PTF, when 29.06.2015 also marks end of Planning time fence. The MRP type for the Material used is equivalent to P4 firming type.

Why this Planned order is lying outside PFT period and not moved inside PTF date of 29.06.2015.

I have attached Screen shot of MD04 for your valuable inputs.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

    With P4 MRP type system won't consider the requirements which falls within your planning time fence it considers only those requirements which falls out side PTF.

    Check below documents to understand the difference between P1,P2,P3 and P4 MRP Types P1 to P4

    • Velmurugan,

      What is your planning time fence period?

      and did you read the document which I had shared above it clearly says in P4 case no requirements are considered within PTF.

      By seeing your screen shot there are no receipt elements MRP had created for requirements which are in PTF as per P4.

      With type P4, no new planned orders are created to cover the requirements which falls within the PTF, system considers the requirements which falls outside the PTF.
