Materials in Project.


Need your help in the below,

1)My client is in construction business..there will be n number of activities,which needs the same material.Eg-Cement.How to generate a single PR..(With collective PR indicator PR number will be same with multiple line items.Client does't want this.We have to consolidate in one line item only.

2)Preliminary PR-When I plan the long delivery time materials in one activity with item category "L"- with "Preliminary Purchase Request" it generates a PR.Now I'll budget the project.After PO,goods will be received.When I try to consume this material in another activity with "Reservation " system is asking the equivalent budget.Actually this should not happen as per the preliminary PR functionality..Any setting in config is required?

please let me know..

Thanks !!

    Hi Shashi,

    You can try with creating a general Project for buying bulk materials across projects.. and then use the function of transferring from this project to the ones where there is a requirement as a workaround solution.

    I think what system is doing from a budget check perspective is standard behavior.

    Are you using Valuated or Non-Valuated Project Stock?

    The easiest way to consolidate demand into a single PR is to use MRP. The components on the project will create MRP demands and the MRP run can create a single PR line item provided the settings are correct.
