Can you please let me know how we can handle below process in SAP.

We maintained stocks in offsite plant and safety stock is also maintained for the plant.

When the MRP planning runs for production plant for the same material it need to check the safety stock of offsite plant and if it falls below the safety stock stock level in offsite plant then it should be considered in production planning for manufacturing plant.

By standard way is it possible?

Actually, you could have made the storage location instead of a plant for your external warehouse. and then creating MRP area and assign the storage location would have solved your problem. MRP will consider the safety stock of your external location and propose the planning accordingly.

However, you will need to plan independently (run MRP separately) since you made it as a plant. Purchase requisitions will be created at your external plant when it finds lower than safety stock and can be STO'ed from your manufacturing plant to external plant.
