Generate Source list

Hi All,

In ME05, (if the vendor is not assigned to the material) will the user be able to assign the vendor (from the source list that's maintained and linked in the material master) ? is it done before or after the MRP Run? Please clarify?

Thanks and Regards,

PSS

    Hi,

    ME05 looks for info records (and outline agreements, if you want them).

    So if there is no info record the ME05 transaction will NOT create an entry in the source list.

    The source list is only a method of automatically determining the source to use (unless it is made mandatory) and so you can still manually allocate a vendor to a PO if the source list does not show that vendor (again ONLY if the source list is not flagged as mandatory)

    But if you want MRP to select a source automatically then you MUST have a source list and the entry must be flagged as MRP relevant.

      Hi,

      In the source list iself (ME01), for the material plant combination, the column is marked as MRP.

      Select the appropriate flag, this is a 1 if you are not using delivery schedules and a 2 if you are and want MRP to create them.
