Conversion indicator not set for planned orders

Hi guys,

I have a material with procurement type (Both) i.e. inhouse & external. Now when i take MRP run, the system is generating a planned order but the conversion indicator is not set in the planned order automatically.That material has a specific BOM & the components of the same are seen in the planned order. When i check the planned order, it shows ordertype -LA with procurement type E.Why? I want the planned orders with conversion indicators automatically set so that i can convert.

Could u explain in detail ?

Thanks in advance

    Dear,

    If the system finds a valid BOM for the planned order and if the release of the BOM for the planned order has been activated in the BOM status, the system automatically sets the conversion indicator in the planned order. If you have not activated the release of the BOM for the planned order, the system does not set the conversion indicator.

    If the system cannot find a valid BOM, the coversion indicator is then also set, as production orders without BOMs, that is, without components, can also be created.

    You can also set the conversion indicator yourself, independent of the BOM status, in the planned order.

    Hi,

    In T.code oppq set the conversion settings to convert the planned order into production order/purchase req/process order.

    Also check the BOM selection ID/priority.

    Check the bom selection options in the mrp 4 view.
