Material Quantity Calculation in planned orders

Hi PP-PI gurus,

As far as I know, MQC is used for the material calculation in a process order or in a master recipe.

Can MQC however be used in a planned order too?

If not, what might be the reason why?

If so, how can you implement this?

My first instinct would be to say it's not possible because:

- A planned order contains far less information than a process order

- At that moment in time, a planned order did not yet make the differentiation between a purchase requisition or a process order (MQC is only needed for the process order)

Hello

It is not possible to use MQC on a planned order.

Please read carefully the following note that confirms that and explains why:

Hi,

Yes, it is not possible to use MQC in planned orders.

In MQC we maintain the formula to calculate material component quantities. This is done in master reciepes and copied to process orders via production versions. And MQC are only relevant for process orders and basically used to calculate component quantities when produced material charecteristics / active ingredients(active material in a product produced) influence quantity required of other materials.

So it makes sense to use MQC only process orders where actuals are being calculated.

MQC is similar to ms excel ! when it is doing calculations.

When in planned orders where all the values are as per the plan there may not be any MQC needed, but when you actually start production and characterisitcs are determind for that production quantity the changes in component qty is required.
