Follow on material effective out date

45 Views

Hi

Is there a way to stop new demands being created within the effective out date period?

We have an issue whereby a material with stock of say 100 qty has 2 demands (reservations) for 50 each for 1st Feb and 5th Feb.

The discontinued indicator is set to 1 in MRP4 and the date is set to 6th Feb and a follow on material is also entered.

All goo so far. Existing stocks will be used up so no dead stock.

The problem is a new demand, say for 20, may be created for the 4th Feb by planning

What happens now is a purchase requisition is created for 20 for the discontinued material.

How can I stop new demands being created within the effective out date range?

I was thinking of using a Material Status (OMS4) to deal with this. Am I looking in the right place?

Thanks in advance for any assistance
