    As per SAP documentation:

    Rounding value for purchase order quantity

    Value to a multiple of which the system rounds up the procurement quantity.

    Dependencies

    The rounding value is used in the planning run if no rounding profile has been specified in the material master record.

    Rounding profile

    Key that the system uses to adjust the order proposal quantity to deliverable units.

    Procedure

    In Customizing, enter a threshold value from which the system should round up to the next value per deliverable unit:

    If the requirements value exceeds the first threshold value, the system always rounds up to the next multiple of the level found

    If the requirements value falls below the first threshold value, the system copies the original requirements value.

    Two other types of rounding exist:

    Dynamic rounding profile:

    These profiles are used to round up quantities to logistical units of measure (for example, layers). The contents of a logistical unit of measure does not have to be know when creating the rounding profile. It is determined by the master data from the material master.

    Rounding profile with quantity to be added/subtracted

    With these profiles, the given quantity is changed either by adding a percentage or subtracting a percentage.

    Only static rounding profiles are taken into account in requirements planning. Neither dynamic rounding profiles not quantity addition/ subtraction are taken into account.

    Examples

    A material's base unit of measure is 1 unit; the purchase order is to be delivered in layers (1 layer corresponds to 5 units) or in pallets (1 pallet corresponds to 8 layers which contains 40 units).

    You maintain the profile as follows:

    From a requirements of 2 units, the system is to round up to 5; from a requirement of 32 units, the system is to round up to 40.

    This results in the following order proposal quantities:

    Requirement from 1 -> 1 requirement from 31 -> 30

    Requirement from 2 -> 5 requirement from 32 -> 40

    Requirement from 6 -> 10 requirement from 74 -> 80

    Requirement from 7 -> 10

    Dependencies

    If no rounding profile has been entered, the system uses the rounding value entered in the material master record for the planning run.

    hi

    rounding value is the value for eg. if u give rounding value as 100 then after valuation if u get a value around 97 or 102 it will be mentioned as 100 only u can give some tolerance to it...

    cheers

    Hi,

    you can adjust the procurement quantities of delivery, packing, transport units of measure...there are 2 rounding profiles:

    1. by specifing the rounding value, the system will determine during lot size calculation that lot size qty is a multiple of of an order unit(eg : pallet size if mtrl is delivered in entire pallets...)

    2.you can use rounding profiles...its used to define the setting of rounding up or rounding down the order proposal qty into deliverable quantities...

    Rounding profiles are defined under:

    spro-> purchasing->consumption based planning->planning->lot size calculation ->maintain rounding profiles...

    it consist of threshold value and rounding value...

    the threshold val is the value from which the system rounds the value of the next deliverable units upto...

    the rounding value is from which the systemshd round up to as soon as threshold value is exceeded...

    Regards,

    Priyanka.P
