MRP RUN For VB type material

Dear SAP Friends,

Following are the setting in material master,

For Finish material-

MRP type - PD,

Lot size -EX

For semifinish material ,

MRP Type -PD,

Lot size -EX

For raw material ,

Mrp type -VB,

Reorder point-1000,

lot size - FX,

Fixed lot size - 10000.

Before MRP Run there is no stock for each material.

While taking MRP run(MD02) requirement generated only for Finish & semifinish material.

If I save that & take seperate MRP Run for Raw material(MD01)

It will consider only fixed lot size in planning,Not consider with the referance of Finish material Required qty.(Header Material).

I want Raw material to be plan & requirement to be generated as per the Header Material Qty.

So where is the problem?

What setting it required?

PL.Reply,

Chandra.

    MRP type VB i.e. reorder type is a consumption based planning procedure. For consumption based planning materials will only be planned in MD01 or MD03 for that particular material ,whenever stock will fall below the reorder level. & since you have given fixed lot size of 10000 it will create procurement proposal for 10,000 only. If you want that only the quantity required by the parent material should be procured then use MRP type PD with lot size EX.

      Hi ,

      Since you have FX - Fixed Lotsize , system will always create proposals in multiples of 10000 whenever the stock goes below 1000 . So only you are getting 10000 here.

      Also , Consumption based planning (VB) does not consider PIR and plan for that.For that , you have to use PD only.

    Hi,

    Please use T-code MD01 or MD03 for planning material with MRP type as VB (reorder point materials)

    MD02 will not plan consumables.

    If there is a need of getting the VB material plan with the demands as per BOM then it is not possible. You will have to change the MRP type from VB to PD.
