Requirements planning

Hello everybody,

I'm doing a Master Thesis in a German company and my task is to improve the company’s planning procedure. Now they use multiple softwares and sources to plan and I want to integrate it all into SAP. Unfortunately I am completely new to it, and still trying to understand how it works.
My first idea was to make a test order of a very unusual item (with no future requirements planned, only stock of 20) and see what happens.

The order was placed on 14.03. This is what happened to the item in SAP the day after.

And this is what it looks like on 16.03.

Now, I don't even know where to start with the questions. Some of the main ones are:

1) Why does it split the order by days in this way (3, 6, 6, 5, 5, 10, 10, 10, 5)
2) Is the number 0,091 some forecast calculation error?
4) Why do the weekly requirements change from 20 in week 14 and 40 in week 15 to 40 + 40?

Can you recomend me some literature, websites or anything that will help me understand SAP better?

    Dear Harun,

    Please post the document in English Language.

    First of all, Requirement type VSFB(Planning at assembly level) is used in strategy group 70, But for req 0.091 there is a custom strategy group is used. you can check in OPPS.

    It will be much helpful if you could post the screen shots of MRP1,2,3,4 and strategy groups in English. Also please let us know whether it is finish mateiral of Semi finish material.
