We are using strategy 11 for finished goods. The problem is i have created one manual production order without demand say for example 1000 units for october month. Now i have given the demand for november 2500 units and run the MRP. I am getting the planned order for 1500 units but i want it should created 2500.

I have made scope of check = Dont take into account.

If i go to the PIR screen and gave the demand in october month for that manual prod.order 1000 and after running MRP, system is giving the correct 2500 units.

Any config settings required?

    Hi Ganesh,

    Your system behaves properly, in case of strategy 11 SAP considers PrdOrd during MRP run. So if you have a PrdOrd of 1000 pcs and a PIR of 2500 pcs, SAP will create PldOrd of 1500 pcs during MRP run.

    However, (based on your setting) if the date of PrdOrd is before the date of PIR, it may occure that during confirmation the PIR qty won't be reduced. Please check:

    demand vs. consumption - historical data

    • Dear,

      Your order October PrdOrd 1000 pcs is completed and post to the inventory stock?

      If not then do GR for first order then run MRP again with planning mode 3.

      PrdOrd before tha due date of you PIR? I'm not sure you problem lies in this, but it can be one reason.

      Stg 11 is driven by consumption period...maintained in material mster Hence please check the consumption stg, forward period and abackword period in material mster MRP3?

      What your MD62 value right now?

    You need to maintain the following master data for the finished product:

    Maintain strategy group 11 on the MRP screen.

    Set the Mixed MRP indicator to 2 on the MRP screen.

    Maintain the item category group (for example, NORM) on the Sales Organization screen.

    Maintain the Availability check field so that you perform an availability check without the replenishment lead time (checking group 02 in the standard system).

    What is the PIR requirment type... it should be "BSF" check and let me know.?

    In Std SAP it is not possible. Conception indicators whatever you are maintaining in material master and MD62 are only for reducing PIR by requirement and not for RECEIPT like Production order.

    availability check what you are talking about will help only in sales order and not for net qty calculation.

    Hence if you want the production order not to be considered for net calculation, then only option is to change the std SAP logic which I will not recommend.

    But tell me why are you creating a manual order.

    As per stg 11, what you enter in PIR is the total production what is possible in that month, hence the whole logic of 11 is based on. But in your case you are assuming that PIR qty + manual production order qty is the production capacity of your plant which is not correct?

    pl come back with your purpose of manual creation of production order?
