MRP Behaviour


Hi, PP experts

The scenario is relates to MRP, actually in my company all the materials are set as moving average with price indicator "V" in material master and based on the materials when we run the MRP the system generate the requirement for procurement for the next month.

Before run the MRP we put manually PIR in the system that how much finished goods we produced for next month, based on the PIR, system generates the PR for needed materials procurement and simultaneously also generate Plan orders for such production which we later convert to production order status. This is the brief configuration of MRP in my company.

Now our management wants two separates plants, one for Production and other for Non Production for example:

Plant 1 which is existing plant and we use for non production activity such as procurement of materials with Moving Average.

Plant 2 new plant for production with standard price.

The future plan is that when we run MRP, system calculates the procurement requirement in plant 1 and generate PR and simultaneously generate Plan order in Plant 2 which is new plant maintained on standard price instead of Plant 1.

To do above working MM consultant already make new plant with price control "S" which is standard new material types and new materials in plant 2.

Before production we move all materials relates to BOM from Plant 1 to Plant 2 and the difference of price which is moving average vs standard is separately booked in deviation account which is a legal requirement of our company.

In my area I have to be creating all BOMs in new plant and configure the MRP according to above scenario.

When MRP runs they produced result in two separate plants.

Plant 1. Procurement requirement such as PR's & POSTO

Plant 2. Plan orders which we later convert to production orders.

I want to know is there any possibility in MRP area, if yes what is the procedure of configuration in spro.

MRP run on finished product and results produce on two different plants.
