    This is not possible. Each MRP area should belong to one specific plant.

      As Caetano suggested, MRP Area would be specific to a plant and hence you will have to create them separately for each plant even though the vendor is same for both.

    You need to create two different MRP area assigned specific plants even though they have common vendor .

    You can also carry out planning for components to be provided in subcontracting using an

    MRP area by defining an MRP area for every subcontractor and assigning the components to be

    provided to the MRP area of the subcontractor. You therefore plan the requirements to be

    provided for these components for one subcontractor separately from all other requirements.

    Depending on the requirements situation, the system creates either stock transfer reservations

    from the plant to the stock of material provided of the subcontractor or it creates purchase

    requisitions within subcontracting/third-party order processing, according to the special

    procurement key settings.

    Check the settings in SAP123 - Using MRP Areas
