MRP considers excluded storage location for planning

Dear Gurus,

In MRP, I have excluded one storage location from Planning. i.e in SPRO->Production->MRP->Planning->Define Storage Location MRP per Plant, I have maintained "1" to "Storage Location Stock excluded from MRP".

But I have a PO on this Storage Location and this is considered for MRP when I view it in MD05.

This PO has got 3 part numbers for the same storage location, surprising only one of them is considered for planning and other two part numbers are excluded as expected.

Can you please suggest why this has happened.

Points would be rewarded.

Thanks and Regards

Shankar

    Hi,

    GSC is right I think.

    Please read the help for the customizing transaction you mentioned. If you set indicator 1 in SPRO->Production->MRP->Planning->Define Storage Location MRP per Plant, it means that when you create / extend the material master this indicator will be adopted.

    It may occur that a material master was created before this setting or someone manually modified the material master.

    Even if you exlude a material from MRP for a SLoc trough this indicator, you will see the requirements and GR-like element (such as PO). This doesn't mean MRP plans with them...or can you see any MRP generated PldOrd / PurReq in the exluded SLoc segment?

    MRP planning means that MRP plans considering the requirements, stock, etc... If MRP only displays the stock or PO it doesn't mean it plans.

    Regards,

    Csaba

    • Hi,

      This PO has got 3 part numbers for the same storage location, surprising only one of them is considered for planning and other two part numbers are excluded as expected.

      As I understand there's problem with only one material.

      Please make the situation clear.

      1. Check the MRP4 view of material master of all 3 aroducts,and report whether the proper indicator is there.

      2. If it is missing please check the material master change history.

      the PO qty has been considered as stock and MRP has planned only for the balance stock.

      1. Can you see the PO in the SLoc segement or in the plant segment?

      2. As I mentioned the PO will be considered into the available qty in SLoc segment, but MRP shouldn't plan in the excluded SLoc.

      Please give more and exact information.

      Regards,

      Csaba

    Hi,

    Check in the Material master of that 3 part numbers in PO,

    Check the MRP 4 view of that 3 part numbers whether you have maintained any storage location for exclusion of that material numbers.

    If there remove & proceed for MRP.

    Hi,

    MD05 is a static MRP list display, You can check in MD04. It is an dynamic MRP list. so please check in MD04 and revert back.

    Regards,

    SPRO->Production->MRP->Planning->Define Storage Location MRP per Plant, I have maintained "1" to "Storage Location Stock excluded from MRP".

    This customizing is just a proposal for new material masters.

    Means if oyu create a new material master, then this indicator is automatically proposed, and the user can keep it or erase it.

    Means as well that no existing material masters will have this indicator. You need to maintain this indicator in any material master that exists for thsi storage location (you can do this with MM17 on table MARD)
