MRP - Create Planned Orders only for Externally Procured Materials

Dear All,

We have a scenario that our client gives us the daily requirement schedule for the current month and a monthly forecast for future months so that we can plan our externally procured materials based on the forecast.

Now I only want the MRP run to create Planned Orders for HALB and FERT based on my current months daily schedule and planned orders for ROH (Externally Procured) based on the next months forecast (monthly).

I dont want the system to create planned orders for HALB and FERT from the forecast. The requirement for the ROH are however derived from the Finished Good BOM and the forecast is also given for the FERT material. I know its a long shot but is there a possibility in the system to do such a thing or a work around?

    Your business case is not clear; MRP will create planned orders for inhouse produced materials, and either planned orders or purchase requisitions for external procurement.

    You can choose to convert or release external procurement for a long time ahead (eventhough taht if you have proper lead times defined you can release by lead time), but convert inhouse planned orders to production orders only for next period (week, month). Actually this is common practice.

    So I fail to understand your problem.

    For the material that you do not want to generate planned order, then you can restrict / block that particular material for the specified period in basic data 1 in x plant status.

    But you can generate the plan for that materials.
