How to combine strategy 40 and 50 for one material


Hi Guru's,

Material A should have the main strategy 40. That means we cand create forecast(PIR) and covert the planned order into production order. So that we can start production.

But when we receive the MTO sales order and release it. The planners hope that the MTO quantity can consume the PIR automatically. So that we do not purchase more raw materials.

For example,

The PIR for material A is as below:

2011/03/05 10- pcs

2011/03/12 20- pcs

Then there will be two planned order as below:

2011/03/05 PldOrd 1001 10pcs

2011/03/12 PldOrd 1002 20pcs

At 2011/03/08, we create a MTO sales order with 13pcs and release it (SO number=23). After MRP run, we hope this MTO order can consume the PIR. as below:

2011/03/08 PlnOrd 1003/SO 13 pcs

2011/03/08 CusOrd 23 13- pcs

2011/03/12 VSF 7- pcs

2011/03/12 PldOrd 1002 7 pcs

Do you understand what I want?

I tried to solve several days by creating new requirement class, requirement type, item category at SO, etc. But I couldn't solve it.

Please tell me what I can do. Thank you in advance!

Best Regards,
