Is there any way to avoid the creation of stock requirements in MD04

Hello,

I have an scenario for which I need to create a Stock Transport Order, I am including one finished material and also a pallet material. For the pallet material the customer is requesting that no MD04 entries are generated.

So basically no stock requirements needs to be generated.

I already tried changing the MRP1...MRP4 values but still, every time I create a new STO, then the system includes a line in the MD04 for that material.

    "I already tried changing the MRP1...MRP4 values"

    this does not tell us anything, please be specific

    Why should an item which is ordered not show up in the MD04? What is the idea behind that requirement?

    Hello, it is as simple as this material is a Pallet, and the business do not want to be any kind of requirement related to it. The business user dont want to see requirements related with this material becuase it will cause confusion. There is not supposed to be requirements related with this material.

    Regading the MRP1 and MRP4 I changed the next values:

    MRP1:

    MRP type is currently = ND

    MRP2:

    Procurement type = "blank" (no procurement)

    MRP4:

    SLoc MRP indicator = "1" Storage location stock excluded from MRP

    Thanks Jürgen L, thanks for your quick reply. I did review the blog you shared, and this is something I already tried, by using the seleciton rules.

    Is there any other possibility thru configuration besides Material Master in order to do this? any ideas?

    Regards!

    I don't think you can influence what is displayed in MD04 by material master field values.

    You may want to check filters and selection rules in MD04 itself, see this blog for details: https://blogs.sap.com/2014/11/04/explore-hidden-functions-in-md04/
