Kanban with MRP



We are operating on Kanban for in house manufactured items.We run monthly MRP by which all our production requirements are getting planned.

For In house manufactured kanban materials we use replenishment strategy 0005 by which a planned order is generated and then it is converted to production order with external number ( We don't want to use internal no. production order which is possible to get by using repl. strategy 0006).

Our concern is there are some oplanned orders that are getting generated through MRP for the same material which is on Kanban,which triggers planning of its raw materials.(we do not want to use consumption based planning for raw materials).

We do not want to generate the planned orders for kanban materials through MRP but at the same time the raw material should get planned.

Since there are 2 sources of planned order generation(MRP and Kanban) the scheduler can not differentiate Kanban planned orders which are to be converted to production orders.

Pl. suggest some method to handle this scenario,

Thanks & Regards
