How to stop MRP from generating PR

Dear all,

I have one material with MRP setting as follows :-

MRP Type = VB

Reoder point = 1.0

Planning Cycle = blank

Lot size = EX

Max lot size = 0

Max stock level = 0

Now, although there is no reservation and the current stock is zero. The MRP batch job still generate the PR.

MRP parameter :-

Processing key NETCH

Create pur.req. 1

Schedule lines 3

Create MRP list 1

Planning mode 3

Scheduling 1

Question :-

1. What is the right setting for me to configurre.

2. Do I need to delete/reset planning file entries and how ?

Rgds

    Dear Husain,

    If the reorder point level is 1 means,for that material you can use the MRP type as PD itself.

    Is that a business requirement that strictly you have to use VB - Manual Reorder point planning?

    Generally this MRP type is used for for the materials that are planned as per the normal consumption for the bulk materials or say

    low cost items.It depends on the business req.once when the stock goes below the reorder point level,during the next MRP run

    the system creates the procurement proposal for that material.

    Normally this reorder level say you can fix it as 100 or 200 as per the past history or the average consumption.

    If you want the system to create planned orders for the same ,check with the MRP control parameter value as 3 - create planned

    orders during batch MRP run.

    Check this link which you help you to understand in detail,

    • Dear Husain,

      Whether there is any reservation or demand for this particular material,but the sysem will create a PR for this material for 1

      quantity as the current stock is zero.This is the standard SAP behaviour for reorder point level fixed materials during MRP run.

      Come back with your further queries.

    Dear Husain,

    Unable to understand exactly your query, based on what i understand

    You want MRP should not create ant PR for one particular material

    then just make MRP type as ND
