MRP ... sequenced run behaviour, why?

12 Views

Hi,

Am having another question on MRP run.

I found that using this setup as below it provides the correct results that i wanted.

That is it will create a PR for location AB10, based on the quantity in Sales Order and a Reorder Point PR for location AB20 to fulfill the shortages.

This is what I notice when I create a new material:

1) New Material Created for location AB10 and AB20

2) Run MRP one time to generate PR for loc AB20, reorder point location

3) Put in Sales Order

4) Run MRP another time to generate PR for loc AB10

I need to run this SEQUENCE EXACTLY for the first time before I can continue normally i.e. plan and run MRP with the desire outcome.

Any deviation from this, results in MRP created PR in loc. AB10 only and NO PR in AB20.

Why is this so? Anyone could assist here please? Cheers.

In location AB10, the following MRP settings are being used:

1) MRP 1:

- MRP Type PD

- Lot size EX

2) MRP 2:

- Procurement Type: F

- ScheduleMargin Key: 000

3) MRP 3:

Availability Check 02-individual requirements
