MRP Run for Multiple plants

Hi Guys:


My client has requirement to merge planning of material for multiple plants and run the MRP under one head plant.

For example:

Plant : 1000, 1001, 1002, where plant 1000 is a head plant who had authorization to perform MRP run.

if I run MRP Sepeartely:Each plant has below requirement for one material number (M1)

Plant 1000 : 3 EA

Plant 1001 : 2 EA

Plant 1002 : 5 EA

Instead of running MRP per plant, my client needs to run MRP for multiple Plants that Consolidate total requirement for all plants.

and generate PR--->PO , In the PO, M1 should be delivered to 3 different plant locations by vendor and Po Will be issued from Head Plant 1000?

Is there any Report in SAP , Where MRP Controller can See Requirements from Different Plants @ Central Purchasing level after one Multi Plant MRP run, So that he can decide on how much to allocate to each plant?

Thanks for help

    Create a scope of planning in OM0E and assign ur plant there.

    Use that scope of planning in "MD01" for run mrp.

    Scope of planning is used to run mrp for

    1. Several plants

    2. One mrp area

    3. Multiple mrp areas

    4. Combination of plant & mrp area

    Hope it will solve ur problem. Revert back.

    If u want to perform the MRP in one plant for all the plant requirement is depends on the bussiness process.

    You can try the following scenario:

    Planning in one plant nd production in other plant - Respective master data and special procurement have to maintain.For

    further clarity please follow the below link

    We can evaluate the PR and PO by providing the authorisation object for the multiple plant to the respective users.

    Revert me back in case of clarification.

    Purchase requirements from several plants can be combined at purchase order stage. You can use purchase controller key to determine the purchase requirements of the same material. Standart purchasing reports of SAP can be used to report them, and all the requirements of the material can be put in the same purchase order per PO items. Items of the PO have to be separate for each plant since the material movements must be held plant wise starting from the GR.
