MRP Planning Calculation for Engineering Spares

Dear Experts,

We have define Reorder Point 10000 qty ,MRP type is VB and Lot size is EX for X item. no other setup define in master for this item but here we have some confusion for this calculation pl. see following example and give your guidance.

Material X

Reorder Point 10000

Stock 100

Reservation created 1000 (not posted)

When I run MRP following result have displyed.

Stock Available 100, Reservation 1000, Purchase Requisition created for 9900 , And Quantity Available 9000

Why reservation not considered in MRP? means why requisition not generated for 9000 instead of 9900 ?

Pl. guid me

    Hi Piyush,

    Discussing MRP functionality in depth is out of scope for such a forum; in short:

    In your example the 1000 reservation is not taken into account by planning because that's how VB works. It only considers stock, nothing else.

    If you do want additional requirements to be considered, use V1.
