    PIR reduction and consumption - There is no difference.

    But the way it is used is different

    When a actual requirement like sales order is created, it consumes the PIR.

    When a create a GR, if the PIR is consumed it is called as reduced...

    Any way both cases it is going to be decreased.

    Hi,

    PIR consumption is when PIR is consumed by dependent requirement or sales order.

    PIR reduction can be through consumption or manually reduction by changing PIR figured.

    Reward point if got any help.

    Hi Jag,

    There is a difference between consumption and reduction

    The consumption reduces planned independent requirements dynamically, whereas the reduction physically reduces the planning quantity and increases the withdrawal quantity accordingly.

    For example: You create a planned independent requirement with 100 pieces. This planned independent requirement is consumed against a sales order with 10 pieces. The planning quantity and withdrawal quantity remain the same (see MD63) but the planned independent requirement is displayed in the stock/requirements list (MD04) with the quantity 90. The independent requirements reduction occurs when you post the goods movement, in this case, with the goods issue for the sales order. The planning quantity of the planned independent requirement is reduced to 90 pieces and the withdrawal quantity is increased from 0 to 10 (see MD63). In the stock/requirements list, the planned independent requirement is still displayed with 90 pieces despite the reduced planning quantity because when you post the goods issue, the customer requirement against which the planned independent requirements had been consumed also disappears
