Re-order point planning

Dear Sir,

We have configured Re-order point planning. Accordingly we have created

the MRP controller and updated the material master (812 materials) with

all the values required for re-order point planning.

With all these settings, system is not running planning after executing

MD01 (total planning), only planning start and stop time is displayed

as a result. Where as if I run single item, single level planning with

MD03 for the same material, system runs the planning and proposes the

purchase requisition also for that material.

Is the planning file creation is the solution of the issue...

if it is then how to create the planning file for bulk material (800 no approx). Do we need to do create the planning file again and again, if we want to add the mateail in Re-order point planning

    Dear Sachin,

    If MD03 is working without any issues....then the problem may be due to program error.

    Before posting, check once again your Plant and MRP customization settings

    Dear Mr Sachin,

    For the materials that are relevant for re-order point planning, the planning file entry will be made automatically by the system when the stock level falls below the "Re-Order point".

    Then in the next MRP run procurement proposals will be created for these materials.

    Hence unless the stock level falls below the re order point, planning file entries will not be made & system will not create any proposal.

      Dear Sachin,

      The error is due to non existent of planning file entry. U could use Transaction MDAB. Create a variant and execute the variant either in the foreground or back ground.

      U could also do a consistency check using transaction MDRE.



      Award points if this helps.

    Pl. check the maximum number purchase order setting in spro. If it is less than 800 then mrp will be terminated.

    Path: Spro->Production->MRP->Planning->MRP calculation->Define error processing in planning run.
