Hi Kiran

Let us take your 2nd case

Stock = 20 >> PIR = 40 >> and the Sales Order Qty = 20 then how will the system behave in this case.

Net Requirement = ( Requirement - Stock) = ( 40 - 20) = 20.
Here, your Sales Order Quantity is only 20 . so it will reduce the existing PIR Quantity from 40 to 20.
Now, if you run the MRP, System will create the Planned Order, for the Quantity equal to the Net Requirement( Also considers the Lot Size maintained as explained earlier) ( For Example : Lot Size = EX : Lot for Lot)

Result : Planned Order Quantity = 20 & Reduction of PIRs from 40 to 20

Yes, Your understanding is Correct. This is the Standard System behavior.

If all done, please close the thread. Thanks & Regards : Raja Sekhara Reddy B

Hi
Please find the below Table , with the basic differences, between Strategy 10 & 40 ( in the last attachement)

With the scenario (or) Example mentioned :

e.g. if I have stock 20 PIR 40 and Sales order 50 then how these strategy works.

With Strategy : 10
Stock = 20 >> PIR = 40 >> Net Requirement = ( Requirement - Stock)>> ( 40-20) = 20. Sales Order Qty = 50. ( This has no significance)Once Run the MRP, then the System will create the Planned Order for the Net Requirement = 20 , based on the Lot Size maintained, in the Material Master( For Example, if the Lot Size = EX (Lot for Lot).
PIR, will get reduced during the Delivery of the Sales Order

With Strategy : 40
Stock = 20 >> PIR = 40 >> Net Requirement = ( Requirement - Stock)>> ( 50-20) = 30. Sales Order Qty = 50. (This has significance here) . The Independent Requirements of 40, will get consumed by the Incoming Sales Order Qty : 50 ( Also, depends on the Consumption Mode & Consumption period maintained)
Once Run the MRP, then the System will create the Planned Order for the Net Requirement = 30 , based on the Lot Size maintained, in the Material Master( if the Lot Size is EX = ( Lot for Lot)

Please find the attached screen shots of this scenario Results

Kindly check & let me know, for any other details/assistance required

Many Thanks for your quick feedback. Best regards : Raja Sekhara Reddy B

Its a very well explained and my doubts with these strategies are now cleared.

one more last question I have what will happened in strategy 40 if the

Stock = 20 >> PIR = 40 >> and the Sales Order Qty = 20 then how will the system behave in this case.

actually I forgot to mentioned above CASE it will great help if you explained this case too.

Once again thank you very much.
