Re: Manual Reorder Point

Dear All,

I am having a scenario where some of the components in the FG material BOM is subjected to consumption based planning.

Now When I am trying to run the MRP for the FG product, I can see the requirements i.e PR for Child items .But I cannot see the requirment for the child item which are subjected to CBP.

Now I do understand is that because of MRP type VB & not PD it is not appearing in MD04 screen.But

How to plan for this material.

Do I need to run the MRP individually for this material,If this is the case It would be very difficult for me to use this feature.

Please advice.

Regards,

Vivek

    Hi Vivek,

    Check the stock of the item which are to be planned with CBP......... if the requirement can be covered with the current stock then SAP will not generate any procurement proposals.......

    Thanks

      Hi Kaushik,

      Thnaks for the update. But for testing purpose I made a fresh Bom & rest.

      So on running the MRP there is no requirment for the CBP material.

      The stock is zero.

      Please Advice.

      Regards,

      Vivek

    Hi,

    system will not plan for material which is having MRP type VB while running MRP for FG material.

    To plan these materials, run MRP for Total plant by MD01 or in background. So all the materials which are having MRP type VB will be planned.

    Hi Vivek,

    AS per your scenario, when you are running MRP for that FG (Single Item Multi Level) then system only pass the dependent requirement to that Component (say it is X), while for rest of the Child material is will generate Planing Proposal also.Reason is dependent requirement doesn't effect the planing file entry in the case of reorder point planning.It will change only in the case of stock fall below the reorder point, and activates the planing file entry.And during next MRP run you will get the planning proposal for the same.

    Hi Vivek,

    Please check whether the Planning File entry is there or not. Use T-Code MD21 to display the planning file entry for the material you are processing.

    If it is not there Create a Planning File entry for the material using the T Code MD20.

    It should solve the problem.

    Regards,

    Rohit.

    Hi,

    If you use the MRP type : VB system will not trigeer the procurement proposal unless the stock level falls below the reorder point. Check the stock if the existing stock is not sufficient to cater the reqt then only the system will trigger the reqt for CBP materials.

    As you said if you have created a new BOM with the new materials system will not show the reqt unless there is Some demand for the header material and the stock of the new child material is below the reorder level.

    If it is not rigger inspite of the material does not have stock, do the planning file entery for the new materials in Tcode : MD21 and and rerun the MRP.

    hope this will help you.

    regards

    Hi Vivek,

    for manual CBP items, you need to maintain a common MRP controller in material masters. create a background job of transaction MD01(or MDBT) with the MRP controller in user exit parameter field. you need to schedule this job daily. this MRP run will create procurement proposals independent of the MRP run for the FG/SFGs.
