Creating Planned Orders with reference to Batch Characteristics

Hello Consultants,

I am running a scenario where for every material there are certain Batch characteristics maintained. Now, Planning for these materials has to be done by considering batch characteristics.

For example, if Material MAT1 is having a batch characteristic(say) BATCH_CHAR having values as CHAR1 and CHAR2 , then planned orders are needed to be created for combination of MAT1, CHAR1 for (say) 75 quantity and MAT1, CHAR2 for 25 quantity.

In MRP Screen or MD61 Screen, I didn't see anything like batch.

Pl guide.

Thanks,

Dheeraj

    Hello

    MRP dos not run in a batch level and it does not consider batch characteristics at all.

    You can use variant configuration, as already mentioned, but then you will consider the sales order characteristics or the PIR characteristics, not the batch.

    Hi Dheeraj,

    You can achieve this by variant configuration.

    you need to create one characteristic as bom_qty. and in additional data maintain table - STPO - MENGE

    Assign dependency as $self.bom_qty = "75", if char 1

    and $self.bom_qty = "25", if char 2

    write if you need any more clarification.

    regards,

    Hello Dheeraj,

    As per my understanding MRP will not consider the batch characteristics for planning..

    i.e. System will generate the planned orders..

    during conversion from planned order to production order you have to select the batch characteristics
