Lot size determination for planned orders

Dear SAP community,

Hope you are doing great !

Please help me w

ith following:

According to the business scenario I have two production versions for one product with different material consumption in PDS (base quntity in Master recipe in ECC).

For example:

ProdVer1 - 75,626, min lot size 74,502, max lot size 78,026

prodver1.png

ProdVer2 - 90,752, min lot size 89,410, max lot size 93,652

prodver2.png

Lot size in material master: Lot for Lot, min lot size 0, max lot size 90,752

lotsize-in-prod-master1.png

lotsize-in-prod-master2.png

I would like to use quotas in /SAPAPO/SCE_QTA and split the planned orders between two production versions.

But during the planning run the system doesn't allow me to do it because it takes the lot size for planned orders from product master, compare it with min/max in PDS and if it OK (in the range) then creates planned order with lot size from product master. In my case the system will always create all planned orders for ProdVer2 and will never for ProdVer1. Because lot size in product master is not in the range of PDS min/max for ProdVer1.

Is there any way to setup or enhance the system behavior to take the Lot size not from Product master but from field "material consumption" in PDS (base quantity in Master recipe in ECC) during the planning? In other words for my case how to create planned orders for both Production versions according to the quotas arrangement?

Will appeiciate any help! Thanks in advance!

Material Consumption (Variable)

    Hello,

    Set a maximum lot size in the product master to split the demand before actually determining a valid source of supply.

    Set the maximum lot size as per PDS, in product master in your case 93752.

    Hello Brahmankar,

    Thank you for reply!

    Yes you are right! The demand will be splitted between sources of supply. But created planned orders will have receipt quantity from product master. In my case as per your suggestion it will be 93,652. But it is requested to have receipt quantity in planned order the same as in source of supply (material consumption in PDS). In my case it is requested to be 75,626 for source ProdVer1 and 90,752 for source ProdVer2. Is it possible to configure it somehow?

    Thank you!

    • Hello,

      In my case it is requested to be 75,626 for source ProdVer1 and 90,752 for source ProdVer2

      Create production versions (C223) with lot size like

      From 1 to 75,626 ProdVer1 and

      From 75,627 to 90,752 for source ProdVer2

      It should work as you expected, if demand upto 75,626 will use ProdVer1 and above that system will choose ProdVer2.

    Hello Brahmankar,

    Thank you for reply!

    But according to the scenario the total demand for month is transferred from MD63 to APO. And during the planning run we cover these planned independent requirements. These requirements are not splitted by Lot sizes.

    For example PIR demand lies on 1-st December with quantity 1000. It is requested to create planned orders for two differend production versions according to their quotas with relevant lot sizes. What do you think is it possible to configure?

    Thank you!

    Hello Brahmankar,

    Thank you for reply!

    But still can't achive my goal.

    Maybe some sample scenario below can help to explain deeper my problem:

    I have two Sources of Supply for the same material.

    ProdVer1 - base quntity 75, min lot size 74, max lot size 78, arranged quoata 30%

    ProdVer2 - base quntity 90, min lot size 89, max lot size 93, arranged quota 70%

    1.Situation with Demand

    Date 1 Demand Qty = 1000

    2. Expected Procurement Proposal as per MRP run:


    Date 1, Planned Order Qty = 75, ProdVer1

    Planned Order Qty = 75, ProdVer1

    Planned Order Qty = 75, ProdVer1

    Planned Order Qty = 75, ProdVer1

    Totally 300 pcs (30% as per quota arrangement)

    Date 1, Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Planned Order Qty = 90, ProdVer2

    Totally 720 pcs (70% as per quota arrangement + 20 pcs)


    What do you think is it possible to configure by the standard SAP functionality? If not then please advise how it is better to proceed? Is there any BADI or User Exit exists to enhance standard SAP behavior?

    Thank you!

    • Hello,

      You want to create the planned orders based open the base quantity, which nothing but the fixed lot size however you want it with different fix lot size and production versions. As I know it is not possible in standard SAP.

      When you run quota heuristic, requirements are splitted between the sources of supply according to the quota arrangement percentage within the quota arrangement period.

      For each requirement, the system distributes it as per the lot size specified in the product master not PDS.

      The system will check whether the order quantity of the new orders respects the lot-size limits of the source of supply, as per SAP note 858358.

      Not sure however you can check the BAdI /SAPAPO/RRP_PLANNING with your own logic.

      Best Regards,
