MRP Strategy

Hi all,

I'm studying for MRP strategy, so i see there are many strategy in SAP ECC 6.0. So i don't know the difference between planning with final assembly and planning without final assembly.

The second point is stock level? may it reference to individual/collective indicator?

I hope receive your support

Thanks, regards

    Hi

    I assume you are talking about "Strategy Group" of MRP3 view in Material Master, am I right?

    If yes, it is Planning Stategy as mentioned by Vivek, please go to the URL below for details.

    http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_05/helpdata/EN/60/9ea1536fbd11d191820000e8a5f6e6/frameset.htm

    ->Strategies for Make-to-Stock Production

    ->planning with final assembly(40)

    This strategy is probably the most widely used make-to-stock strategy.

    ->Strategies for Make-to-Order (MTO) Production

    ->planning without final assembly(50)

    This strategy and Planning with a Planning Material (60) are probably the most widely-used strategies in a make-to-order environment

    Hope the information helps.

    BR,

    Jessica

    Planning with final assembly is for MTS, you plan the finished product, and your stock level is the finished product.

    Planning without final assembly is for MTO, you plan the finished product, but you only produce and stock up to the subassembly level based on your planning. Final assembly is triggered by the sales order.

    Alternatively for MTO you could plan on the subassembly level, stock it, and also trigger final assembly by sales order. If finished products are highly variable but based on common subassemblies, this is easier to plan.

    SAP had created several years ago quite a good Made Easy Guidebook on MRP Strategies. Just google it. Since the logic never changed, also a 10-year old version is still valid and should be publicly available.

    MRP strategy - Planning with & without assembly??? That is something new for me. Can you let us know where you get this info from?

    I know of planning with & without assembly in the context of planning strategy, unless by MRP strategy you mean Planning strategy.

    Anyways do read thru' the SAP help documentation it is quite explicit & even has some examples.

    After reading thru' that if you still face some specific issue, then do revert.

    Hi

    The Planning with final assembly is the typical make-to-stock strategy, your can finish the last steps of assembly for finished product even before the sales order comes, so the goods can be delivered quickly once the sales order is received, this can be generally applied to the scenario that the finished goods can be shipped to all customers, means that we do not need to configure the sales order and production order with specific requirements for respective customers.

    The Planning without final assembly is the typical make-to-order strategy, the final level assembly for the finished products can only be done when the sales order is received, the lower level assemblies can be done in advance according to the requirements of independnet requirements (PIR), this is widely used for the scenario which needs the specific configurations in final assembly based on respecitve customer's requirement.

    If we need to configure the products differently throughout the all levels for each customer, then the pure make-to-order strategy 20 is needed.

    Leon.
