Dear All,

We have the following requirement from client. Example, raw materials are supplied in short by Vendor and production order is released and execution can be done only upto the operation that can be completed with the available material sent by vendor. So, now here some way of triggering is required to Purchase Department where material is shortage, so that they can purchase for remaining production execution. And another triggering to production planning department when materials are in warded to stock,so that they can continue with remaining production using the materials available.

Kindly put your suggestions and help me with this, like what sort of triggering can be given like mail or what....

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Jeffrey,

    can your client accept releaseing production order only when material available? in order to avoid stopping proudciton in middle of processing.

    normal case if some raw materials are in short to produce the FG, MRP run will trigger the PR automatically, and purchasing department can monitor these requirement with a specific MRP controller linked to the materials they are responsible for.

    • ok that's the business requirment, for the missing material triggering information, I think can run mass availability check for RELEASED production orders with t-code COMAC, so purchasing dept daily monitor this report to know the missing materials.
