Planned Orders with Minimum Lot size in Make-to-Order case


Question: can the MRP-run create planned orders that respect the minimum lot size (material master), if the original independent requirements have consumption w/o assembly (MTO)?

I have noticed that the minimum lot size is ignored depending on the requirement class/type of the planned independent requirement. For example, I see that planned orders with independent requirement types VSE (of strategy 50) and VSEV (of strategy 60) do not respect the minimum lot size, until the moment that there is a customer order matching the planned order and a purchase requisition is created, respecting the lot size.

Does anybody know how to solve the problem? In our company, the created planned orders are used as a forecast to the vendors.

Therefore planned orders should consider minimum lot size.

Thank you so much!
