MRP run for Project


Hello Experts,

I want you experts help with regards to the following scenario

This is a construction scenario. In this industry, during the Project estimation stage productivity Norm of the company plays a vital role

For Example

Say for excavation of 1 M3 of Soil following resources are required (this is productivity Norm)

1. Labour – 2 Hours

2. Excavator – 1 Hour

In order to capture this, I have created a Material BOM, with Header Material as “EXCAV” (Material Type – FERT & UOM – M3) and Components as “LABOUR” & “EXCAVATOR” (Material Type – DIEN & UOM – Hours).

EXCAV (Material Type – FERT & UOM – M3)

LABOUR EXCAVATOR (Material Type – DIEN & UOM – Hours)

I have created a project with an activity called “EXCAVATION”, for which I have assigned the material “EXCAV”.

I want to generate the requirement for the components “LABOUR” & “EXCAVATOR”; hence I’m trying to run Project MRP (MD51). But no requirements are getting generated for any material.

Please help me out.

Thanks in advance & any suggestions will be rewarded.
