Preventing MRP for 541'd material

Hi all,

Sometimes we send expensive spare parts to other companies in case of emergency, and get them back when they have it in a few days.

When a material is sent to a vendor with 541 movement (Transfer posting unrestricted-use stock - stock of material provided

to vendor ), the MRP for that material should not create planned orders for that material. Because it is thousands of euros expensive and it will be back in stock in a few days.

After automatic MRP run, planned orders are checked in MD15 and these ones are removed from list for not to create purchasing requests for them.

What can be done to prevent MRP create planned orders for materials that a posted with 541 movement?

Thanks in advance,

Koray

    MRP run does not exclude certain materials, except you define a logic in a user exit.

    It creates a new planned order if it determines a requirement for that material for which you do not have a coverage.

    As a material never falls from heaven, you should create a regular process.

    which means either you have to change your cusotmizing in OVZ9 to make stock at a subcontractor available

    or you need to create a PO to that other company to get the material back and to include this PO into your planning process.

    OK, When I select ATP Quantities, the error text is:

    Diagnosis

    In Customizing the checking control for the combination availability 02 and checking rule BO was not maintained.

    System Response

    This material component cannot take part in the availability check.

    Procedure

    Maintain the relevant entries in Customizing or ask your system administrator to do this for you.

    Procedure for System Administration

    Maintain the relevant entries in Customizing for the availability check.

    Any idea where to edit?

    The easy way is to create an order for that company, but customizing is less prone to user error.
