Problem with MRP

Hi Gurus,

I am trying o set an MRP, type PD with EX lot size then i save an independent requirement at MD61, run the MRP at MD02 for the finished product but the values on the planned order don't make any sense.


Storage stock = 5000 Kg

Independent requirement = 100000 Kg

Planned order = 110604 Kg

Shouldn't the planned order be the requirement minus the existing stock (95000 Kg) ?

Thanks in advance for you help.

Kind Regards.

    Your logic is right.

    But there may be some other requirements in the form of forecast/sale order.

    Therefore, please check in MD04 if any other requirement exists.

    Otherwise, please check if safety stock has been defined in MRP view of material master.

    If either of these exists, then MRP will consider these as requirements and add to the planned order.
