Storage Location determination in the components planned order

As per standard SAP, storage location is picked from the material master MRP View "Issue storage location" for all components in the BOM and it flows to production order. Sometimes, I change the issue storage location in the production order. After MRP , system creates planned orders for all components. These are purchase items , it picks storage location again from material master.


My requirement is when the planned orders are created for purchase items(components) after the MRP , it should pick the storage location from production order not from the material master. Is there any setting available at MRP Group or material level to make this change ?

    Hi Vijay,

    In my opinion there is no such setting, rather you maintain the issuing storage location in routing. Routing storage location will overwrite the material storage location. if the storage location is too important than create two different routing for different storage locations.

    Hello

    MRP will not look into the production order reservation when selecting the receipt storage location for the planned order.

    You can try to implement this logic using BAdI MD_PLDORD_CHANGE.

    Hi,

    Create the Production supply area with required storage location assign this into work center so that production order component storage location will be automatically read from the work center. (As per Production supply area).

    Production supply area:PK05.

    Thanks & Regards,
