strategy for dependent requirements.

Hi Experts,

I am working in a MTS scenario,where 'X' is the Header Material & 'Y' its Assembly(with small sub-assemblies inside).

Now 'X' is produced on order as well as some std.ratings forecasted.Basically strategy '40' (Planning with final assembly).

Assembly 'Y' is produced for stock(in anticipation of incomind orders for 'X') as well as sold.

Planning is done basically for 'X' as well as 'Y' in the PIR Planning table.

My question is :Header material 'X' is given strategy '40'.What about 'Y' ? since it is also being sold & kept in stock for 'Y'.

My concern is when i plan individually for 'Y' its dependent requirements should get generated.

So what should be the startegy for 'Y'.

Please advise.

Points assured.

Best Regards

Afroz

    Hi

    Depend on your client requirements you have to set the startegy..As your scenerio is MTS and you had given strategy 40 for X...

    I think no strategy is required for Y as it is a dependent requirement of X..

    If you reuired depend upon your receipts/issues you can give 10...

    strictly speaking its not required

    Usually in this scenario we use strategy 70 for Y

    What is the advantage of 70 is,

    You can plan 70 weel in advance, example- let us say you planned 100 TO for Y, Run MRP and start producing Y,

    Now let us say there is any dependent requirement from X, let us say 75 TO, then the PIR will be come 100-75 ie 25 TO. Hence you have

    PIR = 25 TO

    Dep req from X = 75 To

    Total requirement still is still 100 TO.

    coam back if you need more help

    Hi,

    Use strategy 40 for X. So that you can create independent requirement as well as sale order also consume stock or it will create PIR.

    Use strategy 11 for Y.So you can create PIR and proceed. And dependent requirement(X) wont consume stock or PIR. It (X) will create another PIR.

    You can deliver both material safely.
