sales order - requirement type

Hi,

During sales order creation, in procurement tab, system automatically determines requirement type as say 011 - delivery requirement.

How does system determine this requirement type?

Thank you

    The system uses a predefined search strategy to determine the requirements type:

    1. First, an attempt is made to find a requirements type using the strategy group in the material master.

    2. If the strategy group has not been maintained, the system will determine it using the MRP group.

    3. If MRP group has not been defined, the system uses the material type, instead of the MRP group, when accessing the corresponding control tables.

    4. If no requirements type is found here, the system assumes a special rule and attempts to find a requirements type with the aid of the item category and the MRP type.

    5. If this is not possible, a last attempt is made to find a requirements type with the item category only.

    6. If the last attempt fails, the system declares the transaction as not relevant for the availability check or Transfer of requirements.

    Dear Robert

    The Requirement Type is linked with your strategy group in material master. To check that go to material master MRP3 view and [see what strategy group is maintained] there. Now go to OPPS, select your strategy group and see against that strategy group what Requirement Type is maintained there. So while creating sale order for a material, the requirement type is flowing based on the strategy group you maintained in material master.

    thanks
