    Hi,

    Through T-Code MDBT, you need to create a variant. In that variant we need to define the scope planning, means what are the plants should be considered in the planning run and what sequence it has to run. Then we need to schedule the job to execute daily manner using T-code SM36 or your basis consultant will schedule the job.

    Deepu,

    I can't imagine why a person would want to see ALL planned orders for an MRP run. If this is a legitimate requirement, you could do an SE16 display of table PLAF.

    In most companies, planning workload is divided up amongst various MRP controllers. Each controller wishes to see only the planned orders that are relevant for his products.

    CO41 is a transaction that is designed for the mass conversion of planned orders to production orders. However, the initial display screen is in fact a listing of planned orders. This is the type of report that a planner would be more likely to wish to review. It allows branching to MD04 and to other relevant screens which would help a planner to make the relevant decisions.

    Dear,

    First define Scope of Planning for Total Planning in OM0E for particular plant.

    Then in MDBT define back ground scheduling parameter. then go to schedule job button.

    Fill in the Date and Time value.

    Click Schedule periodically as DAY-1 and define time as 8:00

    It will work for you. Result of scheduling you can check in MD04 or MD05.

    Hope clear to you.

    Regards,
