To remove account assignment category "E" from MRP generated PRs to consider existing stock.

Dear All,

I face the following issue,we follow MTO scenario "strategy 20" here. Initially our MM consultant asked that he want sales order link in purchase requisition. So in OPPQ "Direct procurement" initially it was account assignment category "U". I changed it to "E" and then it started to reflect in MRP generated PRs with "Account assignment" tab with sales order.

But the problem is it is not considering existing stock,even if there is enough stock,it again generates PR respect to sales order quantity. So we decided to remove the account assignment "E". Again i reversed the changes in OPPQ. But when i ran MRP it still reflects in PR and not considering existing stock yet. So how to remove the account assignment category "E" default from MRP generated PRs, so that to make it consider existing stock. Any more settings to be done from my side PP, SD or MM.

Kindly put your valuable words..

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

This is standard behavior of Strategy 20. Why you want to change this behavior ?

If you want to consider stock you can think for some different strategy 10 or 40.

Hello Amit,

But before including account assignment category as "E" it was considering existing stock and created PR only if not sufficient. Even then i had same strategy 20. And by the way considering existing stock i mean for raw materials. For FG yeah i know it won't consider and we need to move stock using 412 E mvt type for sales order stock.

I've also surfed regarding this in another thread as follows:

"We have a unique requirement, wherein the user wants to use MTO, but including 'unrestricted-use' stock.

ie

1. If there is 'unrestricted-use' stock available, then MRP should use that for the sale order.

2. After 'unrestricted-use' stock is exhausted, MRP should generate a PR to satisfy the sale order requirement.

I have tried strategy gp '20' and '41' with the following settings in the MRP views, without success:

(either I am able to consume the stock and have no link between SO and PO, or I am able to link SO and

PO, without consuming the 'unrestricted-use' stock)"

So according to my requirement i want to consume stock and have no link between SO and PO.

Hello Jeffrey

For your component, you should change the field "individual/collective" to 2, in the material master tab MRP4.

After that, the purchase requisitions created by MRP for this material will not be linked to the sales order special stock.

Hello Caetano,

Thanks for your prompt reply. So if this the case then if am using a particular raw material say A for many FGs,then after MRP run it'll be generating a single PR compiling the requirements of all those FGs right.
