    check following settings

    Ensure that you have created necessary Info, (ME11) Source List (ME01) and Schedule Agreement (ME31L).

    Check whether the schedule agreement linked in souce list with the MRP indicator.

    Check whether the purchasing view filled with the quota arrangement data.

    Check whether the MRP1 view is filled with necessary MRP Type.

    Create Quota arrangement by using transaction MEQ1 and fill the validity end date to open the quota screen.

    Fill the Procurement type, vendor code and quota split for the two vendors and run MD03 (MRP run).

    You will get the splited schedule lines as per the quota and you can view it in MD04

    Go to MM02 - In "Purchasing" view, enter "Quota arr. usage" as "4" and save.

    Also maintain MRP views of the material master.

    go to OMI4 - here for MRP Lot Size (For e.g. EX), activate "Splitting Quota" for Short-term as well as Long-term planning both and save.

    Now go to MEQ1 - here for material master and plant and press enter, here maintain valid to date and pres enter and double click on this

    Here enter Procurement as "F" (External Procurement), also enter all the vendors and enter Quota as per requirement for all the vendors.

    Prerequisite for Quota Arrangement is Purchase Info Record and Source List must exist for the material.

    Now maintain Planned independent requirement for material in MD61 and then run MRP for the material in MD02 and check system will generate the PRs for the material for all the vendors maintained in MEQ1.

    Quota arrangement helps in automatic source determination.It is used for purchasing cycle optimization.

    In the purchase requisition, at the item detail level, there is a 'source of supply tab' in that u can find a button 'assign source of supply'.

    When you click that, the system proposes the source of supply from quota arrangement,source list and info-record.

    The source assignment should be done in PR and not in PO.

    Hope this helps
