MRP type


I want to run MRP in Fixed time period.

I mean only run the MRP in the fixed period, if the requirement is out of the time period, system will not consider this requirement for the MRP.

So which MRP type & Other setting i need to use?

    Dear Maulik,

    Use MRP type as PD and fix the requirement time period = Planning horizon = in number of days.

    Run MRP with the processing key NETPL once after maintaining the requirements within planning horizon and outside the

    planning horizon.

    To understand more check this thread,

    HI Maulik,

    As Said by Mr. Managalraj, fix your planing horizon e.g if you want concider req falls under next 90 days only , then in oppq for plant level mrp parameters set 90 days in planning horizon.

    Then run mrp using Processing key NETPL, system will concider only those req. which falls under planning horizon.

    With Processing key NETCH system will concider all the requirments, whether it is within or outside planing horizon.

    In md02 planning run put the processing key NETPL and define the planning horizon in number of days in OPPQ and OPPR for plant and MRP group Respectively so it will plan only those materials which has undergone MRP relevant change under this defined number of days.
