planned order plans replenishment of 1/2 KG

Dear guru's,

In an MTS environment, when MRP has run, the system creates planned orders which are then converted to process orders.

Those process orders, let's say for 100KG, are then produced. A process order has been completed for 99,5 KG and the process order has been closed.

After another MRP run, the system created another planned order for 1/2 KG which is not needed. How can we make sure the system does not create this redundant order, but accepts that there was plus/minus enough to satisfy demand?

thanks for the help!

    Where is the demand coming from? PIRs?

    • Hi GB,

      You are using MTS scenario with demand from PIR. And PIR quantity is 100 Kg.

      And the stock produced is 99.5 Kg.

      And you are using net requirement planning, hence when you delete and recreate planning in MRP run system checks the existing stock and the demand, and creating order for 0.5 Kg. This is the standard behavior.

      If you do not want this to happen, then you have to remove the PIR or reorganize the same.

      Hope you got your answer from all above and this comment.

    How is the system gonna know that your demand is satisfied? System will think that you planned 100Kg so, you want to produce 100Kg. Unless in some way you let the system know that 99.5Kg met your needs and you don't want to produce any more stock for that period. You need to re-organize the PIRs you the TCodes mentioned by Senthil.

    Hi GB,

    As per you example you say you planned for 100 KGs. Planned Order XYZ is for 100 KGs.

    You convert this planned order XYZ to Production Order ABC of 100 KGs.

    Now you do confirmation and delivery for 99.5 KGs.

    there are few things I would like to say -

    - There is under delivery and over delivery in terms of percentage you can define for the materials in materials master. How much more or less quantity you can do the delivery and close the production order.

    - To check what is planned and what is actually delivered against the order - use standard report - COOIS it is very useful and provides the necessary information.

    - Specific to your business process, you want to measure your forecast against actual production, other parameters, need to go for custom development, a Z report for comparison.

    Hope it clarifies your queries.
