MPN Functionality with Manufacturer Plant.

Dear MM Followers.

I am trying to create a Purchase order with MPN.The PO will be released on a vendor who is not a manufacturer which is having the partner function as VN,GS,IP and OA.

I have maintained the manufacturer vendor code in the MPN material code of material type HERS.

The manufacturer is a vendor code with MNFR as account group.Now this manufacturer has two plants which are again mapped as vendor code having MNFR as account group.

Now when I create the PO I am able to get the MPN profile and MPN number in the material data but I am nowhere getting the manufacturing Plant in PO creation screen.

What is missing....

    Hi,

    Select the proper MPN no for the internal material..(when selecting in the material number field, press f4 ,use selection : "Search help for MPN") If there are several materials with MPN activity its better to maintain MPN profile. Otherwise no need. Please cross check the settings. First please understand the Process of Manufacturer Part Profile :

    Create External No ranges for Vendor Account Group MNFR and save.

    Now Create Each Make / Manufacturer like ABB as one Vendor in XK01 Trxn code.

    Create Material Code original say XXXX in MM01 with ROH material type. (for eg Transistor which is available with ABB & Seimens make)

    Create material code for ABB make say 11with Material type HERS which contain only two views (Basic Data & Purchasing) and give Make, Original material No & Material group and other details and save.

    Create material code for Seimens make say 12with Material type HERS which contain only two views (Basic Data & Purchasing) and give Make, Original material No & Material group and other details and save.

    Create a Purchase order with original Material XXXX, then it will ask for mnfg part profile then select the material and click F4 on it it will show you the created mfg part nos like ABB 11 & seimes 12 and select one and save.

    Prerequisite is you have to Activate Mfg part profile in OMPN trxn code

    And in Material master Purchasing View Select the mfg part profile and save

    Even if you set the Mfg part number in Display mode in SPRO settings system will throw the same error.

    Now What can be done is :

    Either go to ME21N and Select material tab after inputting and press f4 and select Manufacturer part number options then system will showe the list of mfg part number maintained to that material select the desired and save.

    Else go to MM02 Purchasing View and in Mfg part Profile tab there must be a four charecter profile assigned to field Remove this and saveunderstand the MPN process

    Hope it will help you. Thanks

    My understanding is that you have to have a differenent MPN material number for each mfg/mfg location.

    It sounds like from your description you want to have one MPN material and you want to link it to one mfg that in turn has two more mfg numbers linked to it representing the two mfg locations. I don't think you can do that.

    You can create a single vendor number and link the two mfg numbers to that vendor. But I believe you need a separate MPN material number for each mfg location.

      Not sure about the help file piece, but everything you have done sounds correct. Except that you should have an MPN number for Z0001 and another MPN material for Z0002. When the PO is created and they enter the internal material number, you can then do a drop down search for the MPN materials associated with the internal number and the two MPN materials will be displayed. You select the MPN material for the sourcing plant.
