    Hello

    MRP areas are only relevant for planning, that means, they will not affect existing stocks or costing.

    You will have to extend each material to the desired MRP areas but you can use report RMMDDIBE for mass processing.

    Existing documents which are assigned to an storage location will be automatically assigned to the respective storage location MRP area.

    When activating MRP areas you should also run the planning file entry conversion on transaction OM0F.

    In addition, you should create a scope of planning including your plants and the MRP areas on the desired planning sequence and also change your MRP variants to plan using the scope of planning.

    Hello Savithri,

    MRP Area is a process for planning the MRP for a group of materials through the scope of planning

    MRP Area can be divided into 3 ways

    1. MRP Area at Plant level

    2. MRP Area at Storage location level

    3. MRP Area at Subcontracting vendor level

    As suggested by Caetano MRP Area planning will decide which type of materials we want to plan as per the configuration

    for this planning we have to activate / maintain the master data for the desired components

    refer the below thread for better understanding

    Basics of MRP Area

    Regards,

    Venkatesh..
