How to map this sceanario

Hi PP Gurus

We have the following sceanario in planning , which we want to configure in SAP MRP thru consumption based Planning (CBP) method

I have taken a case to illustrate the sceanario better

1. Avaeage Sales of a Product is 100 numbers / day

2. Total monthly sales of the product (assuming 25 working days) is 2500

3. Totak week sales accordingly is 700 nos

4. Minimum stock to be kept is for 7 days ( 1 week)

5. Ordering to the vendor to be donce once in a week , keeping the despatch schedule of 100 nos daily from vendor

6. Lead Time from PO to receipt is 7 days

Based on above data , please suggest , what levels should be kept in material master to trigger automatic Purchase requisitions , for Consumption based planning

    Hi,

    What i can understand from your query is you have 1 is to 1 ratio of component and assembly. Maintain 700 as your as your re-order point to trigger automatic PR.

    Maintain the below settings in the material master,

    MRP type as VB - reorder point planning.

    Reorder point - 700

    Lot size - FX - Fixed lot size

    Fixed lot size qty - 700

    Hi Gurus

    I have found some clue

    With reorder point at 700 & lot size FS (Fixing & splitting) , I am able to achieve my objective , but still one issue

    With lot size FS , I am able to split the despatches from vendor but the date in each PR is coming as same

    e.g. on the basis of reorder point , system has created the ordering lot of 700 nos & has created 7 Purchase requsitions of 100 nos each , which is ok for me

    But it is assigning the SAME date on each PR , where as I want the dates in PR should be different

    How can this be achieved
