MRP Live MD01N not exploding BOM components

Hello experts,

I am trying to run the MRP Live MD01N in a Retail FMS system for an article that has other components in the BOM. While running MD01N with the flag "BOM Components";

The components of the BOM are not planned. Only the Finish Goods are planned. The components are procured externally, and the finish good is procured by subcontracting, so if I don´t have stock of the components, the MRP should create a PR in order to satisfy the need of the subcontracting PO.

The FSH_MD04 shows me the following result:

The components are red traffic signal. I will convert the PR to PO, and run MD01N again, to see if with a PO the components are now taken into account in PR creation.

The results are the same, no PR for the components.

If I run MD02, then the PR for the components are generated.

Is something missing in the customizing?

Best regards and thanks for the help

    Hi Francisco!

    First of all run tx md_mrp_force_classic and check if there are any messages against your components which can bring light to the issue.

    Secondly make sure your components are relevant for planning with MRP live logic (flag "classic mrp" unticked). Keep in mind there are some restrictions for materials which do not allow to use MRP live. However system should automaticallyswich to classic logic for those materials.

    Hello Igor!

    Thanks for your reply. There are no messages and the flag "classic MRP" is not ticked. This is FMS (Fashion Management system), I don´t know if the articles have something different.

    In FSH_MD04 the status is BB (subcontractor requirements of material provieded), and it says I need the quantities corrected, but doesn´t create any Purchase Requisition. In the old MD02 it creates the PR.

    How is possible to have 2 different results?

    Make sure the following notes are implemented in your system:

    2534195 MD01N gives the stock proposals as Planned orders without components

    2439084 Fashion MRP does not explode Sales BOM for different variants of the generic article

    2230930 MRP Live : Components are not planned for subcontracting process when group is active.

    • Hello Caetano,

      My support package is SAPK-61810INEARETAIL - SAP Enterprise Extension Retail, so I think all those notes are already there, because they are in older SP. Also I checked the code corrections and they are there.

      I am not able to check if the notes are already implemented in other way.

      Is there anything else missing?
