    Hi Meena,

    1 ) If you creating MRP 4 views only system will not ask for the Forecast data provided you have not selected Forecast view In Select Views screen.

    2) If you want to have the cost of consumption of Milk --- Create Milk as a stock material and assign it in the BOM of the Header Material.

    Regards

    Hi,

    1.For automatic reorder point you need to maintain the forecast value, then only the system will calculate the reorder point value.If you select the mannual reorder point, then no need for forecast value.

    2. Coming to next issue i am not sure why the costing is not maintain in the non stock material.But if you want to include those views for non stock material type, you can maintain through OMS2.

    Hope it will be helpful.

    Regards.

    Hi,

    1. To calculate the automatic reorder point system needs the past consumption data & also the future requirements which will compare the past consumption data .

    So for this you need to maintain the Forecasting data also in the Material master.

    2. It depends on the material type you select for creation of materials.

    As per the standard SAP for non stock items we will not create the accounting & costing view for the material, it will always be the account assigned purchase.

    If you want the value also you can maintain the Milk with other material type like HIBE --Operating supplies which is a consumable & can maintain the price in the material master & also can check the consumption values for that.
