    U can achive using the rounding profile .....

    Rounding profile

    Key that the system uses to adjust the order proposal quantity to deliverable units.

    Procedure

    In Customizing, enter a threshold value from which the system should round up to the next value per deliverable unit:

    If the requirements value exceeds the first threshold value, the system always rounds up to the next multiple of the level found

    If the requirements value falls below the first threshold value, the system copies the original requirements value.

    Two other types of rounding exist:

    Dynamic rounding profile:

    These profiles are used to round up quantities to logistical units of measure (for example, layers). The contents of a logistical unit of measure does not have to be know when creating the rounding profile. It is determined by the master data from the material master.

    Rounding profile with quantity to be added/subtracted

    With these profiles, the given quantity is changed either by adding a percentage or subtracting a percentage.

    Only static rounding profiles are taken into account in requirements planning. Neither dynamic rounding profiles not quantity addition/ subtraction are taken into account.

    Examples

    A material's base unit of measure is 1 unit; the purchase order is to be delivered in layers (1 layer corresponds to 5 units) or in pallets (1 pallet corresponds to 8 layers which contains 40 units).

    You maintain the profile as follows:

    From a requirements of 2 units, the system is to round up to 5; from a requirement of 32 units, the system is to round up to 40.

    This results in the following order proposal quantities:

    Requirement from 1 -> 1 requirement from 31 -> 30

    Requirement from 2 -> 5 requirement from 32 -> 40

    Requirement from 6 -> 10 requirement from 74 -> 80

    Requirement from 7 -> 10

    You need to do the following

    - Lot size key in MRP 1 view = FX

    - Fixed lot size = 780

    Run MRP

    it will work as you are expecting
