forecast MRP query

Hello,

We are implementing forecast based MRP and I found all the planned order are based on consumption/forecast values. but if an extra sales order in created(special order), system does not create special 'requirement/planned order' to fulfill the same.

But just make an entry in MD05, after MRP run...

Is this because of 'forecast based planning'?

And system in informing the MRP controller to make decision and create the Purchase requisition/order manually !!!

Please suggest.

Regards,

JPS

    Hi,

    In case of forecast based planning system plans based on forecat values. but now if you enter sales order now, system checks the avaliable stock in plant, if stock is avaliable system will not create any plan for this sales order

    if stock does not avaliable than it will look for planned independent requirement in back period if gets it will consume that PIR.

    if PIR not avaliable in back dates than it will look for PIR in future period but within defined lead time ( based on delivery dates)

    and consume that PIR.

    if nothing avaliable than system will plan for those sales order and this is based on stretegy group you assigned in Material master.
