PIR Consumption

Hi

I want to use consumption mode as backward/forward and periods 15 days each.I have maintained these details in material master.

During consumption the consumption is happening from last PIR.For example my requirement is on 12th and i have pirs from 1st to 31st.system should consume 12th PIR first then 11th and 10th so far...but system is consuming first on 1st PIR the 2nd..

Is there any setting?

    Gobi,

    What is the requirement type you are working with? It is surpring to hear that it deletes oldest PIR than the latest ones just before the requirement date.

    Dear,

    In LSF- strategy 10.

    The system always reduces the oldest planned independent requirements unless the consumption fields (Consumption mode, Fwd consumption per., Bwd consumption per.) PIR will be consumed once Good Issue is done for the delivery/sale order. You can see this quantity as withdraw quantity in the scheduline line tab in MD63.

    Have you maintained in the material master or in the MRP group?

    You can use Planning Strategy 40,with consumption mode as '2'(Backwar/Forward) and backward consumption period as 15 day) n forward consumption Period as 15 days.This will solve your problem.

    The system automatically consume the PIR in backward first upto the specified period and start consuming the forward after the period

    Check whether have you assigned MRP group in material master MRP1 view.

    Check this:

    Hi,

    Have you assigned any MRP group? If so check the consumption mode in MRP group. MRP group has higher priority.

    • I have a couple of similar PIR consumption problems. We recently applied all the latest hotpacks and it could be related to that.

      We have weekly PIRs, strat 11... When I confirm a production order for week 45, it should consume the related PIR for that week. However, it leaves that PIR in place and takes out week 46 PIR. No matter what setting in IMG or material master.

      Please let us know what their response is.
