Stock transfer PR-URGENT


I have a scenario urgently to be configured for stock transfer from other plant

Plant1(Receiving plant):

Proc key- F

Spl proc key-40 (from plant 2)

Strategy: MTO

Plant2(Mfg plant)

Proc key- 'E'

Strategy : MTO

My requirement:

When i create a SO in plant 1, it creates a PR after MRP and immediately it creates planned order in plant2. But client requirement is that unless they convert PR to PO in plant 1, there should not be any planned order in plant2. Becoz PR they do not consider as a demand.

Is there any standard config in SAP.

    Hi TN,

    You have configured the system such that all uncovered demand from plant 1 is sent to plant 2 as a purchase requisition. This is standard "Best Practice".

    Your clients have told you that they do not want ALL unfulfilled demand to be sent to plant 2; only Purchase order demand.

    You can remove the Special Procurement key from plant 1.

    Run MRP in Plant 1, creating unassigned Purchase requisitions. When the clients create a Purchase order, they will have to assign Plant 2 as a source. Next MRP run in Plant 2 will then create a Planned order.

    I should mention that this is not "planning", this is "reacting". However, if this is what your clients say they need, so be it.

    By the way, for some reason the Forum Editor software did not like the subject of your posting, it kept giving me an error message until I changed it as above.....

    Best Regards,
