MRP run to consider tolerance value


I have a valid & interesting requirement from my client.When the open PO, PR or production order qty is approximate to the required qty, then MRP run should not create proposal for the shortage. Also when the open qty is just exceed the required qty, then MD04 should not show exception message 26 or 25.


1) The material reservation is 100 kg. I have a PO or production order of 101.5kg. Then MD04 should not show exception msg 26.

2) And if there is a shortage but within tolerance of 5% for example then MRP run need not create proposal. This also applicable to sales order, means if the SO is for 100 & I have 99, then it should not show show shortage and create a proposal.

I just worked with rounding profile thinking it may solve the issue. But its not working as desired.Am I doing any mistake?

Any idea friends?

    Hi BNR,

    Use of Rounding profiles looks a reasonable option as you indicated. Did you use the 'Qty to be added/subtracted' option? Can you share some screen shots of entries (Threshold & Tolerance) you tested with... and the results?

    The other closest feature could be the use of Delivery tolerances (mainly Under delivery tolerances) the Purchasing Info Record & Customer Master--> but the results may not exactly match your description.

    Please check the following links...
