cross plant planning - material master setup query

Hi

I am setting up an sto process where plant A is supplying plant and plant B is ordering plant. The material master is setup as follows

Plant B: MRP2 view - Proc type F and special proc key 40; Purchasing view

Plant A: MRP2 view - Proc type E; workscheduling view; sales view

Is the setup ok?

I came across an sap help article on cross plant planning (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_40b/helpdata/en/be/4d89479d3a11d191920000e8a5f6e6/content.htm)

where Mixed MRP indicator = 1 has to be set up in material master in plant A, but as far as I'm aware this is not required for sto process. Any clues why this needs to be maintained?

    That field is of no significance based on the setup you are trying to establish. As for MM setup, that's about right. Based on your setup, I'd reckon you are trying to create stock transfer demand in the supplying plant and subsequently, manufacture it and ship out to the receiving plant.

    Hi ,

    Just my idea for you.

    There's a few scenario for Cross Plant Planning Such as :

    Stock Transfer from Plant to Plant

    Withdrawal from Alternative Plant

    Production in Alternative Plant

    Since you understand your process is where plant A is supplying plant and plant B is ordering plant , i assume it would be Stock Transfer from Plant to Plant.Within the stock transfer procedure, goods are produced and delivered within a company.

    And there are few scenario are available to enable you to transfer materials from one plant to another:

    Stock Transfer Between Plants in One Step

    Stock Transfer Between Plants in Two Steps

    Stock Transport Order Without Delivery

    Stock Transport Order with Delivery via Shipping

    Stock Transport Order with Delivery and Billing Document/Invoice

    You need to know which scenario for your business requirement.

    If you din't maintain the Mix MRP = 1 , your PIR's will NOT getting consuming

    What you need to do for all this is using the special procurement key to settings for multi-plant planning with other special procurement types.

    TQ.
