SAP SD (Requirement type)

Hi all, thanks for your time. I have some doubts i hope somebody could help me solve.

The business case : The company wish to use Co08 to make a production order but once we introduce the sale Order we get

the error that there is no CO object. We discover its because in the sales order, procurement tab we can see requirement

type= 011....after investigate we found that isnt possible to use Co08 when requirement type is =011. But we ignore which requirement type would allow us to use Co08, why and which is the effect of change the requirement type

My first question is, what does it mean that field? (Requirement type) what impact does it have in the business to change the requirement type to one that allow us to use Co08?

Note: THe business doesnt use MRP, i think thats why the requirement type is 011.

My second question is : Where can i know what does the requirement type mean or does?

My third question : From where does the system get the requirement type and where could i change? so when i set plant to 1000 the system set the requirement type the business need? I thikn its important to say again, there is no MRP

As an extra notes: Again, there is no MRP, all the input for the sales order, materials, come from a different ERP. We use a ABAP UI to get the required fields and create them in SAP.

The current requirement type is set, once we enter the plant, and the requirement type is set =011

Thanks to all for reading, might be confusing so if there is any question i will try to answer it.

THANKS AGAIN and happy 14 feb.

    Thanks sanjit, i understand a bit more about the requirement type now, u mention that in In Planning strategy we define requirement type of customer Requirement but where is it? I assume its in IMG, but can i have like the path?

    So...for what i read, if at the moment we have the system configure so that using Plant 1000 the requirement type in procurement =011 we shouldnt manually change (or configure system) the requirement type to one that allow us use Co08 right? is there like an option system to know where or how requirement type 011 affect the system?, i think requirement type 011 is "delivery request" or something like that.

    Thanks again, it was a big help to read ur post

    • Hello,

      Goto: IMG - SD - Basic Functions - Availability Check and Transfer of Requirements - Transfer of Requirements - Define Requirements Types.

      Here you assign Requirement Class & subsequently open link - Define Requirements Classes.

      Here you can see various conttrols defined in Requirement Class.

      Requirement Type is determined by Transaction thru Item Category + MRP Type in Masterial Master.

      Hope this helps,

      Thanks,

    Hi.

    Requirement Type : It depends on which material you are selling in the Sales Order.

    Under MRP3 Tab of Material, there is startegy group

    e,g : like

    20 - MTO Production Net

    21 - MTO Production Gross

    There is an Requirement type which is associated with each strategy Grp.

    e.g : for 20 Stg Grp. the Requirement type may be LSF/BSF/VSF.

    Like wise You need to check the correct Requirement Type for Order.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the path! ill look for it annd see what can i do.

    C.Ankit , may be a really noob question, but where can i see the startegy group? u say in MRP3 tab of material but does the material have that tab when there is no MRP in the system? i was told all the "inputs" come from other ERP which an ABAP UI take the values and use them to create material list and materials.

    Under that condition, there is a MRP3 tab, and where can i see that material tab? is there a transaction for it?

    THANKS!!

    Hi,

    Make to Order Cycle Flow :

    1. Create SO with VA01

    2.Create Production Order with CO:

    Enter Sales order number and Item No.

    Order type: PP

    Click on FLAG,

    Select Generate Operation and enter NO,

    save the Document.

    3. Confirm the Production Order with CO15.

    4.Create Goods Receipts with MB31 and Give the Moment Type 101.

    5.Check the Stock Position with MMBE & then create Delivery with VL01N, Billing with VF01 and Post to Accounts

    If MTO is with respect to MRP :

    There Must be an strategy Group which should be associalted with the material you are selling.

    Under SPRO , you need to check the Requirement Type associated with that particular strategy Group.
