MRP does not create proposals due to too quantity overflow?

Dear All,

A lot of topics are available about MRP that does not create new purreq's, however I cannot find the solution for this specific case.

(MRP1 to MRP4 settings in MM02 are checked and also my MD02 MRP settings should be fine.)

According to my colleagues it might be due to the fact that the material unit is set in MG which results in in accumulated demand of 9.999.999.999,999-.

Does some of you experts have a better solution then changing the unit of measure Thanks!

    Do you see a X for NETCH in MD21 transaction?

    What is the planning horizon maintained for your MRP group?

    Are you really in a SCM system? Otherwise you should change the tag to Material Requirements planning

    "MRP1 to MRP4 settings in MM02 are checked and also my MD02 MRP settings should be fine", ...this is your opinion, but without seeing those screens or getting each field value explained it is not possible to be justified by strangers.

    "According to my colleagues it might be ...which results in in accumulated demand of 9.999.999.999,999-." - Any prove for that? E.g. a screenshot from MD04 or from your MRP run? Your colleagues can look into your system, we can't, so we need much better input.

    I can already tell you that you might not be able to change the base unit, as you are talking about "accumulated demand" it can be assumed that you have documents where this unit is already used, and this prevents you from changing the unit as already discussed some 100 times here in the past

      Hi Jurgen,

      Sorry, I agree that my description was very brief..

      Moreover, I also changed the question tag based on your feedback.

      I am aware that base units cannot be changed - creation of a new material is a (less elgant) solution.

      However, still, I do not understand why know purreq's are not created?

      Attached you will find some screens of MD04 and my settings, I hope that this helps.

      Thank you for your help!
