production version - restrict usage

hi all,

i have a complex scenario, where we have to restrict the MRP from using the previous production version, and assign the second production version to new planned orders. however, we also want to leave the old production version intact in the past planned orders.

i have tested by locking the old production version but system wouln't allow my planned order to convert into a prod. order.

i also tried using validity dates:

Prod version 1 : validity up to today (ex. 8/1/2008 )

Prod version 2: validity starts tom (ex 8/2/2008)

however, if i limit the first version, then check my planned order (which have start & finish dates of 8/29/08), the system gives me an error. i want the system to continue, because the prod version is all already assigned.

    Dear Raf Timan,

    Check whether this can help you...

    Try to assign the production version directly in the PIR screen in MD61,

    Go to the Schedule Line tabkey -> then in the top menu click on Settings -> Prod. Version.so try to

    assign the production versions as per your requirement and then take a MRP run and then check the

    results.

    Hi Raf,

    Try with following ways,

    - Tick Quata arranegement in Material Master MRP2 view.

    And then go to T.Code MEQ1.For Assign Quata for Material For perticuller period of time.Then go to inner screen for Assigning Produciton version and relesing qty for that Prodction version.

    - If Lot size of both production verion are Same.Then system will select the produciton version which is aplhanumericaly first.For example if your first Prod version is 1001 then create new Producion version like A001 which containes the BOM and master recipe of your earlier 2nd production version.Pls try with this logic it defenalty works.(This is just an example)

    Sorry there is one Correction over here (ignore earlier 2 option)

    If Production there are 1001 and 1002.and lot size of both version are same then system by default select the fist one that 1001.So if you create new production version 101 (Which is simmiler to 1002) then insted of selecting prod. version 1001 system will select 101.

    Hi Raf,

    What is the error messag you are getting?

    As the PV is valid from 8/2/2008, if the Planned Order date is 8/29/08, then why the error??

    Regards,

    Hello,

    Please you Quota arrangement.

    Give the Production version , which you wnat to use in quota arrangement. If you have pv1 and pv2.But you want to use pv2, than pv1, then give pv2 in quata arrangement.

    MRP will consider the pv given in quota arrangement though you have tow versions seen from mrp4 view.

    THE Production version defined in quota arrangement will be having more priority.

    Hope this helps you

    Reward if useful.

    Regards,

    Ravindra
