    Dear mayuresh

    The following values are important for defining the reorder point:

    Safety stock

    Average consumption

    Replenishment lead time

    The following values are important for defining the safety stock:

    Past consumption values (historical data) or future requirements

    Service level to be achieved

    Forecast error, that is, the deviation from the expected requirements

    Please check

    • Dear

      Did trafer the demand to MD61 through MD70 ? You need to do that before u run MRP .Otherwise it will be showing as forecast in MDO4 not as independent demand .Check the stock and requirement situion in MD04 because once you run MRP system will check open demand , open stock , reorder qty and then does net requirement calculation to generate the proposal .

      just chek that n come back.

    Dear ,

    Both ROP-Automatic and Manual as well as FBP , system uses the Past Consumption (Movement Type 601, 261, etc -Consumption against Sales , projects , free issue of material through Movement Type -OMJJ-Material Master Update as Planned or Unplanned Total Conmtion in MMR-Forecasting View ) of certain period and Create Demand through Forecasting .

    Now this demand-Forecasted Demand or Re-Order Point (which also a demand qty ) will teated through MRP to have Procurement Element based on planning situation after Net Requirement Calcualation and also Safety Stock..

    So basically , what you have to do as a test trial is as follows :

    1.Maintain Forceasting View of the Material master with Model Selection , Period Forecast , Persion per session , Initialisation Indicator , Paramter Optimisation , Histty periods min 6-12 motnhs .

    2.Goto Total Consumption tab , maitain total consumption ( planned or unplanned ) -Thi is basically happnes best on the Busness txn and OMJJ updates as explained above.Now hit Excetute Forceast -it will pop up with window with model as selected ( let say Moving average -G) , continue and then you will find basica valuses , MAD , Forceasted Demand ,ROP Qty all are in date wise .Save this and now run MRP you will find result in MD04.Bsically there are two parts one is executing forcast to calcualte ROP automatically based on MRP type -VM and Forecasting view and then Run MRP-MD03

    Hope this is clear
