Indpendent Planned Requirement linked to a specific customer


Is there a way to enter a planned independent requirement in MD61 but allocate a specific customer number to consume the forecast? We have cases where multiple customers buy the same material number, but only one customer has the planned independent requirement (forecast).

    I don't think the feature exists in the standard demand management. Possible workarounds:

    1 - Create an MRP area for each customer and create the forecast at MRP area level.

    2 - Use BAdI MD_PIR_FLEX_CONS to determine when the forecast should be consumed.

    Refer SAP note 1967124 - BAdI enhancement for flexible primary independent requirements consumption/reduction

    Business Add-In MD_PIR_FLEX_CONS method GET_REQ_CONS_CHARACTERISTIC which permits you to specify which requirement characteristics are taken into account in the consumption check. The existing method CHECK_PIR_CONS_REDUC is also relevant because the consumption or reduction check is made available by the method GET_REQ_CONS_CHARACTERISTIC.

    Also refer KBA 2084268 - How to assign a planned independent requirement to a WBS or a sales order

    Read the note documentation for more details

    Best Regards,
