    • Hello,

      As per your screen shot your sale order is in MTO segment

      Check the OVZI setting for item category XXX origin should be 0 i.e., from material master. and

      Check in material master have you assigned any MRP group?

      Check the Planning strategy group of your MRP group

      Please refer consulting note 47045 - Tip check list f. indep.reqs.reduc./consmptn probs.

    You are using planning strategy 40 but the sales order is under the sales order special stock. Strategy 40 is a make-to-stock strategy, so this sales order is obviously not using the correct requirement type for this strategy and the consumption will not happen.

    On the document Demand Management: FAQ and consulting notes you will find links to the demand management FAQ notes, where you can find the solution for this issue.

    Hi Sun Riser,

    As was mentioned by Caetano the problem is the Requirement Type.

    In MD04 you can see that the system is planning this sales order as Make to Order (note that you have a Block for the sales order in MD04). Change the Requirement Type in your Sales Order (VA02 --> Procurement tab) and put KSV.

    You will see that the special session (blue lines) in MD04 for the sales order you will disappear, meaning that this will be a Make to Stock planning scenario.

    Now, in order to consume the PIR, as was also mentioned by another expert, you need to enter a backward and / or forward period consumption, following by the right consumption mode.

    Kind Regards,
