    Pro-Forma Invoices (or any invoices, for that matter) are neither 'supply' nor 'demand' in a standard system. They are not relevant for MRP, which only deals with supply or demand (stock, expected stock receipts, expected stock issues).

    It is not clear to me what would be the business process that would require performing MRP against a document that is normally only relevant for accounting. If this is your intention, it means that the entire solution will be a custom solution. Standard SAP does not support such an...odd...requirement. You need to spec it out and hand it off to your programmers.

    Best Regards & Good Luck,

    • Hello

      On the standard MRP, it is not possible to generate a planned order with a different name for specific requirements and I'm not sure if this is possible thorough an enhacement either.

      My suggestion for you would be to use the make-to-order procedure for quotations, so that MRP generated planned orders linked to the quotation stock.

    Hello Vijesh,

    As per my understanding a proforma invoice is created with reference to a sales order or delivery. Since sales orders are already considered in MRP, why do you want MRP to create procurement proposals for a proforma invoice ?

    Please explain the business requirement in detail as to why a proforma invoice should lead to MRP planning and subsequent procurement proposal generation ?

    Best Regards,
