Vendor Master: Minimum Order Value

I am new to supporting MM and there is a question about Minimum Order value on the Vendor Master (LFM1-MIMBW)

It is not currently used.

Can we simply start populating it?

Can it be populated for only specific vendors?

What specifically will it do for us?

Are there draw-backs?

Is it "safe" to test?

Thank you all for information

Althea

    The minimum order field come into picture when you run MRP. When a PR or PO is created after MRP based on the mimimum order qty of the vendor the order qty is decided by the MRP run.

    Other than MRP, this field is not in use in any other scenario

    No problem at all in using Minimum Order value in Vendor master

    It will only applicable for that vendor and only for MRP generated PR's and convertions of those PR's to PO's.

    It is populated for the only vendors in which u maintain this.

    Drawbacks - If the requirement is of 10 pcs but minimum order value is 100 then system creates the purchase proposals for 100 which may increase ur Inventory./

    Yes it is safe as it doesnot involves any configuration and it is only a master data activity.
