Auto conversion of Planned orders

Good morning,

I want to be able to do the following process: -

1.MRP creates a Planned order outside the Planning time fence.

2.When the Planning time fence hits the order, I want it to firm the order and move it inside the Planning time fence.

3. I want a background job to convert the Planned order to a production order

4. the second step is for this job to do an ATP check on the materials, if all material are available I want it to release the order, if not I want the production order to stay at the created status.

Thanks in advance

    Dear,

    <b>1.MRP creates a Planned order outside the Planning time fence</b> - go for MRP type M1 and give the planning time fence in material master. Hence any new requirement will be pushedpit of time fence, and will not get firmed till it goes inside time fence.

    <b>2.When the Planning time fence hits the order, I want it to firm the order and move it inside the Planning time fence.-</b> Go for M1 type of MRP type.

    3. <b>I want a background job to convert the Planned order to a production order</b> - Try in C041...with respect to many selcetions you can have try to call this transaction in BDC call transaction method and can have a background job to run

    4. <b>the second step is for this job to do an ATP check on the materials, if all material are available I want it to release the order, if not I want the production order to stay at the created status.</b> - it is also std transactionMDVP in background...through BDC call transaction you can give condition if the result in a planned order is 100%, then convert and call CO41

    Hi,

    You need to define the mrp type as M1.In this case if there is a material shortage the system creates proc proposals and will be rescheduled out.

    When the planned orders move inside the planninf time fence automatically

    the system will firm the planned orders.

    once planned orders are firmed the system carries out availability check.

    For this you need to define <b>action control</b>

    Regards,

    nandha
