    Hi,

    You can configure Lot size for MRP as per your requirement below is the path for the same

    SPRO-IMG-Material management-Consumption based planning-planning-Lot-Size Calculation-Define Lot-Sizing Procedure.

    here you have the option of defining MRP lot size based on period where you can define. select the lot size as MB which calculates lot size monthly basis.

    Regards

      Hi Michael,

      Can you let me know which Lot size you copied for Z3? What values you have entered in this lot size?

      I have simulated the exact same scenario at my end & the system is creating 1 proposal for all requirements lying within 3 months.

      Await your inputs.

      Regards,

      Vivek

    Hi

    In OMI4 --- lot size for short term period tab - Put lot size ind-M and No.of periods 3.

    You can copy from the monthly lot size procedure.

    Check this out and let us know whether it works.

    Cheers

    Hi all,

    I copied the Z3 from MB and also assigned to material master (view MRP1), and the short term parameters as per below:

    - No of period = 3

    - Lot size proced = P

    - Lot size ind = M

    - Scheduling = 1, else <blank>

    Do i miss something?

    Pls help. Thanks

      Hi Michael,

      Might be silly, but have you assigned the No. of periods as 3 in lot size for short-term period i.e. when you copied MB you replaced 1 with 3 right?

      If yes, then also just check in MRP-4 for Indiv/coll indicator have you set it as 2?

      Regards,

      Vivek

    Hi Vivek,

    I copied the Z3 form MB, and changed the no of periods into 3. and there're no difference between material assigned with Z3 or MB.

    We haven't activated MRP4 view, do I have to activate that view first to make this happen?

    for your additional info, I use MRP type (configured) based on ROP.

    Pls help.

    Thanks

      Can you let us know:

      1. The requirement dates for that material

      2. How is the system presently behaving, is it creating a procurement proposal for each need separately or is it creating a proposal by clubbing all needs in a month or any other pattern?

      Regards,

      Vivek
