Make to order - MRP

Dear all,

MY Client doing Make to order production, finished material is assembly. all components are sent to subcontractor under 541 mvt type without reference. when the sale order came for assembly, we have to run MRP, at the time system not considering subcontracting stock ( components).

fert - material master - Mrp 2 view procurement type-F and spl procurement - 30

components - Mrp 4 view - ind/coll requirement- 2

I want system has to consider subcontracting stock of components while MRP run????

thanks in advance

    Special stocks are not considered for MRP run. Subcontracting stock is a special stock (O), hence is not considered for MRP.

    You need to define MRP area for vendor subcontracting. then run MRP for this MRP area it will work for you.

    Please do refer this thread also,

    Hi Prakash,

    System is behaving correctly.

    Subcontracting stocks are special stock (O) , hence system will not consider the same during the MRP run.

    If you want the system to consider the same either you need to Create a seperate plant for the Subcontracted Stocks OR You can define MRP Area for the Sub contracted Vendor and run the MRP after creating the Scope of planning in customisation.

    Hope this will help you .
