Procurement at the beginging of the period


Demand is maintained in the system in month format, which the system splits into weekly buckets and procurement proposal is generated accordingly (based on weekly production plan). We would like to procure certain parts at the begining of the period and would like the system to generate planned orders for the begining of the period instead of dividing it over the weeks.

What parameters can be used in MRP to make this happen.

    A simple method may be using a monthly lot sizing procedure for the material. This way requirements for a month will be grouped into one proposal at the beginning of the period.
