External Procurement With Event-Driven Kanban

98 Views Last edit Jul 25, 2017 at 08:30 PM 2 rev

Hello, here is the scenario:

Use Event Driven Kanban to drive External Procurement (STO) using the BAPI: BAPI_KANBANCC_ADDEVENTDRKANBAN.

Use MRP to provide - a future view to the plan for our supplying plant.

Noticed that we need to have the SLOC MRP set to "1" in order to create the cycle.

However, we noticed that we can update the SLOC MRP back to " " for the storage location. This allows for the process to continue without issues.

To control - not producing unnecessary purchase requisitions we:

Run MRP to recalculate the requirements (old purchase req. is deleted)

Set automatic purchase order flag off in the material master MRP view

My question is there anything that we need to be concerned with in this approach ?

It appears to be working just fine for us in the prototype.
