Extra Planning seen in MD04



For few materials we see tha that the system is planning more qty than the demand.

For example if a customer order placed for 3 EA in a DC, once the MRP is run system is generating Pur requisitoin for 4EA.

The planning strategy used is 52 and the lot size used is MB.There is no safety stocks defined in the material master.

As suggested by SAP,the pre requisite for planning strategy 52 is to maintain lot size key as EX. I have changed the lot size to EX but still the system is planning more qty than the demand for the material.

Please help me understand the reason for the extra planning.
