MRP - Not considering Unrestricted stock

Hello,

AM S4 HANA User. I ran Sales Order MRP in MD50. Eventhough I have necessary RM stock in system, the MRP created PR for the RM material. Its not considering the Unrestricted stock in the system.

Please advise the settings by which the MRP will automatically consider the Free stock in the system?

Thanks,

George

  • Hello,

    If you are running MRP on transaction MD50, I suppose that your material is under the sales order special stock and, in this case, MRP will not consider the unrestricted stock. The solution in this case, as already mentioned here, is to change the field individual/collective, in order to have your raw material planned on the collective stock and considering the quantity available as unrestricted sctock.

    Please observe that this change will not affect the requirement if it is coming from a production or firmed planned order, and you may have to recreate it or re-explode the BOM.

    Regards,

  • Hello Solomon and Almeida,

    Thanks for your reply! But my issue is still not solved, i think am not aware of the changes that i need to do.

    In Brief, I have 4 levels for BOM(Configurable BOM), In the 4th level Raw materials will be triggered. As of now i have maintained 1(individual req) for the 4 Header Materials. And when i ran the MRP, in the 4th level material, the PR are created for the respective sales order, thus it is not considering its unrestricted stock :(

    Could you advise me, for which material i need to change the req as collective req? for Raw material or for the Header material?

    Regards,

    George

  • Dear Solomon and Almeida,

    I changed req type to collective req for all the raw materials and made strategy type as MTO(20), now raw materials are consuming from the unrestricted stock :)

    Thanks for your guidance!
