Alternate product in MRP - BYD Query

Mar 20 at 01:34 PM


Hello Experts,

We have few products who has alternate products in system.

As MRP checks for that specific product stock, it proposes for purchase (ignoring the alternate products)

Is there any way we can define in system that product A is alternate product to B item.

hence whenever there is requirement of product A, system will check A & B also, if B product found in system, item B will be planed for delivery & no proposals are created.

Hi Vishal,

It is not possible to define alternate product for any given item in the system.Therefore there is no way to configure this scenario.
