Single planned order to cover multiple shortages inside PTF

We have an MRP requirement to consolidate shortages on different dates inside the planning time fence into a single planned order at the planning time fence. The single planned order quantitiy must equal the total of the shortages and no more. 'Lot-for-lot' lot sizing almost gives us what we need, however it results in multiple planned orders (i.e. one for each shortage) in stead of a single planned order.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Laurence.

    Hi,

    You can use the special period based lot size for e.g monthly, weakly or even you can define your own lot size

    as per your required. According to this lot size you can combine the requirement in that period & create one

    planned order or purchase requirement..

    Rgd,
