Dear All,

Our client expects the following requirement,

Currently after i run MRP, capacities gets overloaded which i can see in CM01. So for leveling it i go to CM21 and level it. Now what client expects is when they run MRP itself,the capacity leveling which i've told before should take place automatically. And if am using hierarchy in work centre (production line) it should get distributed automatically. Is it possible to do so?

Kindly help me with it.

No, this is not possible in standard MRP. This functionality would only be available in the APO PP/DS.

The closest thing you can have is capacity leveling running as a background job after the MRP run. See the document for detail:

My suggestion for you would be to firstly plan all those products for which you need capacity leveling with MPS, run capacity leveling as background job, and then run MRP to plan the components.
