No planned order creation for STO PR

Hi,

Our client requirement is like this.

STO takes place between 2 sites. When a STO PR is created in the 1st site (receiving plant) on the 2nd site (production plant), 2nd site will get a demand as PRqrel. When MRP is run in the 2nd site, a planned order gets generated.

Client does not want this planned order, because it is for a PR (STO) and hence not a firmed order.

Client wants planned order to be created only for STO PO and not STO PR.

Is there any setting that can make this happen?

Please advise.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Kishore

    Kishore,

    This is an example of yet another client who has not fully thought out his business processes. Oh well.

    MRP will ALWAYS create a net requirement calculation. Requirements placed upon a plant by a STO Pureq will ALWAYS be used in the net requirements calculation, and will therefore contribute to the creation of planned orders.

    Anyhow, in the destination plant, change the Material Master to "X" procurement. MRP will create a planned order instead of a purchase req. No pur req = no dependent demand = no planned order in supply plant. When the time is right, you can convert the planned to a purchase req, and then to a purchase order (STO).

    Rgds,

    DB49.

    they this one.

    i the check group, PP (standard used in MRP run calcualation) if you ahve different find out.

    and in the scope of check, play with indicator "Incl.rel.order reqs "

    this should help you to consider or not consider your STO requirement.
