    Hi

    Planned Delivery time can be set at material level also in MRP2 View.

    Resarvations r created by user dept. requesting stores for a Goods on a specific date. This is just for Planned Issue and Reservations can be created manuallly (MB21) or automatically from PP/ PM/ PS module.

    If helpful....

    Regards,

    MRP List vs. Stock Requirements

    The MRP List shows the planning situation at the time that MRP is run. This varies company to company. The Stock Requirements List shows the current situation, but keep in mind that planning transactions such as planned orders, and exception messages are from the last MRP planning run. So, the Stock Requirements List is more up to date with regards to planned actual movements, current stock levels..

    Purchase order must be procured through the same purchasing group

    Yes.

    Reservations can be created for...

    In my experience reservations are created to make sure that inventory is promised to a requirement. They can either be created manually, or in another SAP module like Production or Maintenance. For example a production order for 10 chairs would place a reservation for 40 chair legs. This means that 40 chair legs are reserved for that order. If the re-order rules are met MRP will generate a requirement to make/purchase enough chair legs to meet the reservation (or stocking strategy).

    Backward scheduling for external procurement

    Planned delivery lead time is set at material and plant level

    I'll check the other questions and add to this post.

    regards

    Steve
