Issuance (pack size) Qty and Minimum Lot Size

Hi Experts,

I have a problem, I have to maintain Minimum Lot Size and issuance (pack size) in the material master. Suppose Minimum Lot size of one material is 2000 and Pack size vendor provides is 400.

Means, when we place order, minimum order can be made for 2000 Nos and when we issue the material to WIP from Main Store the minimum issue quantity should be 400.

How can we map in the system.

Please help me.

    I would like to suggest as :

    Maintain the Base unit of measurement for material as PAK/CARTON/EA.

    In additional data, unit of measurement mention 400pc = 1 ea/carton.

    Whenever issue the material from stores, the quantity should be 1 ea (i.e 400 pcs) basing on base unit of measurement.

    Now comes to minimum order quantity should be 2000 pcs.

    Maintain ORDER UNIT in purchase tab of material master as PC.

    To restrict the order quantity must be 2000 pcs, In that vendor master

    Order optimisation restrictions u2013 quantity. This is useful while ordering the vendor.

    For example if the quantity to shipped from this vendor you enter as 2000 pcs. When creating purchase order, if quantity is less than 2000 the system will give message.

    Try this in quality with a full cycle of documents.
