Hi Angelica,
If the MRP Type =P4, System will not create any Procurement Proposals, for those new requirements, which comes, with in the PTF Period.
In general, P4 is used for in house produced materials, for which, you would like freeze the Planning (System will not change automatically)

Take a look of this Example : Material : MATFIN, MRP Type : P4, Planning Strategy : 20 (Make to Order), Planning Time Fence : 15 Days. For this , End of the Planning time fence : 25.09.2017.
For this Material, Sales Order : 15433, is created Today ( 02.09.2017) within PTF. Once you run the MRP, System will not generate any procurement proposals . Because the requirement is with in PTF Period. Look at the below screen shot of the same scenario
Kindly check & let me know your comments/feedback . Best Regards : Raja S Reddy
