Dear Guru's

I have maintained safety stock of my FG in MRP 2 viiew of material master as 5 EA & have created demand of 10 EA. System is showing me the demand of 15 EA. I want the system to show me the demand of 10EA not 15 EA.

There is no stock of this FG

Can I anyone help me in solving this issue

Thanks & Regards

Kalyan

    Normally safety stock is on top of demand. Otherwise, if there's no demand, as an example, there will be no provision for safety stock!

    But there's a way; at MRP group level you can define (in customization) the percentage of SS that is available for planning. If you define it as 100% (I think that the maximum is 99), then you get the result that you are looking for.

    Dear Kalyana,

    You can do if you maintain 5 EA as Min Safety stock not a safety stock,

    if you maintain 5 EA in safety stock then planned order generate 15 EA.

    Dear Kalyana,

    As explained by our forum member,the system creates 2 different PR/planned order for the material,one for the demand say

    Ind.Req for 10 and the other for safety stock of 5,so the first proposal for safety stock and the next for the

    dep/ind.requirements.

    Check and revert with your further queries.
