Kanban With MRP and with External vendors

We are implementing SAP 4.7 for one of clients and here is the requirement:

They want to use Kanban with external vendors where once KANBAN is empty, it should create a schedule line for the defined scheduling agreement. Problem is , we have to exclude the material from MRP in order to work with "External Purchase Orders" or "Scheduling Agreement" replenishryment category.

They do not want to exclude the KANBAN materials from MRP but want to use KANBAN for procurement with vendors.

Is this possible?

Because when we try replenishment strategy " Working with MRP" , SAP does not create any PO or Schedule line desite of maintaining all the data. Instead, SAP allows replenishment elements created in MRP run to flow thru and create PO/ Schedule lines.

Is it possible to include the material in plant MRP and still use external procurement kanban?

      Hi Vikas

      Ia m not familiar with asynchronous MRP. Can you elaborate on that? What specific settings we need to make for that?

      Thanks for your help.
