True "Lot for Lot" sizing procedure


Hello Gurus.

I'm using Lot sizing procedure "EX" and "Individual category" to have MRP generate individual planned orders for my sales requirements.

However, I notice that when the sales requirements occur on the same day, MRP is grouping the proposals into only one per day. For example:

Sales Oder A: 8 pieces (May 20, 2008)

Sales Order B: 12 pieces (May 20, 2008)

MRP Result

Planned Order: 20 pieces (May 20, 2008)

According to SAP: "On Lot-for-Lot Order Quantity; planning is carried out on a daily basis. This means that the system groups requirements from the same day together in one order proposal instead of creating an order proposal for every requirement."

Is there a way to use a TRUE lot for lot sizing procedure? Even if my sales requirements are in the same day, I want to have individual planned orders, and not have them grouped into one lot per day.

Thank you.
