Batch size MRP

Hello

I have some individual materials.

Fot those materials, i have individual needs from SD , and collective needs come from Management Demand.

When I run a MRP, for the individual needs, I have one planned order (qty 1) for one need (Qty 1).

For collective needs come from management demand, I have one planned order per date of need, so i can have a qty <> 1, and i want a fixed order by 1, but i can't.

I tried FX Qty 1, FS , but I always have, one planned order per date of need (if i have 10 need for the same date, i will have one planned order with 10 in qty, and i want 1).

How can i do ?

Thanks

    Christian, you mean that for FX = 1 Lot size , the system is using some other setting and creating the planned order by total day requirement ? It is weird... What is the strategy group in the MRP3 view of the material ? Requirement Group in MRP4 ? Individual / Collective in MRP4 ?

    Christian,

    If you are using FX/1, then all of your NEW planned orders should be for 1. Did you delete the old planned orders before re-running MRP?

    Best Regards,

    Hello

    in mrp3 the stategie group is empty.

    Mrp4 is individual.

    I don't have any problem with collective parts, the batch size is correct.

    With individual part number, i have a problem, when the needs come from the management demand.

    I have one planned order per date, if i delete manually the planned order, i will have the same problem after running an MRP.

      CHristian, not clear.

      "With individual part number, i have a problem, when the needs come from the management demand."

      Usually requirements coming from Demand management are collective, so your problem seems to be in teh proper definition of the issue.

    Yes I agree

    i have two kinds of needs for an individual part:

    - individual needs from Sales orders. with spécific wbs (because I know the configuration)

    - collective needs from Demand management without wbs ( because I don't know the configuration, I use MRP3 configurable material with configure variante)

    So for the collectif needs, it is impossible to have a planned order with qty 1 (I tried FX=1 and FS 1).

    Always the planned order aggregates the qty per date of dependent requirement.

    EXEMPLE:

    if I need qty 8 for 2010.10.10 I will have a planned order for 10
