MPN materials have different lead time

Hi Experts,

We requirement is like this :

For a raw material there are different manufacturers, So we use the MPN function. For example, Raw material 100001 have two MPN number, one is 1000011 and other is 1000012, 1000011 is purchased from vendor A, 1000012 is purchased from vendor B, and in the quota arrangement, quota proportion is 4:6, In purchase info record, they have different lead time, MPN 1000011 vendor A is 10 days, MPN 1000012 vendor B is 16 days, We run MRP everyday, When run MRP, Propose the requirement of PIR quantity is 1000, MPN 1000012 generate purchase requisition, The fixed vendor is B and the quantity is 600, Buyer convert the PR to PO, MPN 1000011 generate plan order and the quantiy is 400(Because not in open period), Planner didn't convert the plan order to PR, When running MRP the next day, get the same result , SO the vendor B is always the real supplier, Vendor A get no quota.

Is there a solution to this?

Please let me know.

Thanks & Regards
