We have 2 vendors. One Vendor A is having delivery time of 30 days & another vendor B is having delivery time of one week. If we have quota for the 50/50 then what I expect that for 4 weeks orders will be placed to vendor B then on 5th week order to be placed to vendor A.

Week 1 Vendor B - 100 Quantity

Week 2 Vendor B - 100 Quantity

Week 3 Vendor B - 100 Quantity

Week 4 Vendor B - 100 Quantity

Week 5 Vendor A - 400 Quantity.

As Vendor A has long lead time 30 days so this is how above order should be generated through MRP.

In case of emergencies MRP should not suggest rescheduling early the order for vendor A instead it should create requisitions for vendor B as vendor A has long lead time & he is not in a position to supply early.

Can you please let me know in what way this can be acheived. I have activated splitting of requirement for lot size but still I cannot understand as to how we can handle emergency situations.
