MRP generated with converted quantity

Dear All,

I like to know, if there is a way when MRP generate a PR base on the order unit?

Example :

Material A UOM = PC

Material A supplied by a vendor which only sell per BOX (@BOX = 11 PC)

MRP : Lot = HB

SS = 37

Max = 48

When MRP run, it will create PR for 48 PC.

My problem is when PO created for 4 Box, then it leave a 4 PC short for the material..

Regards,

Beto

      Hi Beto,

      Your problem is because of your mrp max-48pcs and the vendor box-11pcs. Its not matching.

      So, you create two info record with vendor specific.

      One is for box purchase & another one is for PC purchase.

      And you set your max according to your box purchase.

      For ex: you said the vendor sell as box containing 11 pcs.

      so you set your max in mrp multiple of 11. (44, 55, 66pcs)

    Hi,

    You can resolve the issue thro changing the order unit in your info record for the material.

    You can also enter an order unit that differs from the base unit of measure stored in the material master record in a purchase requisition. You will find the order unit on the requisition item detail screen. When a requisition is converted into a PO, the Variable order unit field must set to active. Otherwise, the order unit in the requisition is overwritten by the order unit in the info record.

    For more details, go thro the below link:

    Dear Beto,

    If vendor only sell per BOX and a BOX has 11 PC, you would better to set Max either 44 or 55. It is not logical to set as 48 because it is not multiple of this vendor package.

    Thanks,

    Gordon
