Generate planned order from Sales order in MTS scenario

Hi Gurus,

We have a strange requirement is to have planned orders to be created for sales order in MTS scenario.

There are materials which are sold as both Finished goods and as spares ( to be used as spares, don’t go with Material type ERSA). Like in case of pump set, pump is a component which can be provided to customer as spare.

We have MTS scenario running, in which PIRs are raised on finished goods and subsequent stock is sold to customers once produced. Sometimes, an ad hoc requirement comes in form of a sales order for same material (saleable). Now since this is a MTS, it will consume stock, which will impact to my already committed stocks to a customer.

Note: Stocks should not be with any account assignment (M). It should be a pure MTS case.

Example:

StocksMaterial_A100Credited from production orders (Committed to customer "A")Sales order30Shortfall70Now I have 30 shortfall qty to commit to customer "A"The requirement I, system should generate another planned order for tis shortfall qty. Can we achieve this with some standard/custom strategy?

    HI Amit,

    as for My understanding you want system to be raised planned orders for sudden demand from sales without using MTO . i think strategy 40 will meet your requirement.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello

    One simple solution is to use an MRP area and direct those MTS sales orders to this MRP area. System will not consider the existing stock and will generate a new planned order to cover the requirement. I like this solution because there is a clear separation between the forecast and the sales orders.

    Another alternative would be to define a requirement type for your sales order that would not consume your PIRs. With this solution you won't need to use MRP areas, as MRP would consider both the sales orders and the PIRs in the net requirements calculation.

    Hi both,

    Thanks for your reply.

    If I don't consume PIRs, then I will overproduce the material, as sales orders will be created for all kind of sales, be it regular or be it ad-hoc. I will try to use MRP area option and will let you know the result.

    Many thanks..

      You may use a different requirement type, that won't consume PIRs, specifically for those ad hoc sales orders. The requirement type can be tied, for example, to the sales order item category, so you can use a specific item category for those sales orders.
