MRP with SD scheduling agreement and MM scheduling agreement

HI All,

It's an DI manufacturing and follows MTS (10) planning scenario.We are not much clarity regarding Scheduling agreement and the relation with MRP. Sales dept Maintain scheduling agreement instead of sales order for an FG, and thise agreement maintain as schedule line in Forecast(weekly) and then it again divided as an schedule line(day) in JIT. While we run the MRP system will create planned order/schedule line against sales order's schedule line. latter then shop floor people convert this planned order/schedule line into production order and do confirmation. whether is this correct procedure and system will act as an different manner for scheduling agreement? what is the process flow of MRP planning for scheduling agreement?

And awhile run the MRP schedule line will be automatically create for raw materials in purchasing(MM) scheduling agreement. If we are create manually in purchasing schedule agreement's schedule line, the creation indicator displayed as "R manually created", we want MRP create schedule line automatically with the indicator "B MRP automatically created".

What all are the settings we want to do to meet this requirement? what all are the master field settings and what all are the transaction flow we wants to do? Kindly explained us

* Can we fix the schedule line qty in MRP settings while create schedule line automatically? or in any of master data for materials

Thanks

    SKA,

    whether,,,system will act as an different manner for scheduling agreement?

    MRP will not act in a different manner. Forecast delivery schedules and JITs appear in the MRP list as just another type of sales requirement. Only the JITs are deliverable, but both (forecast schedules and JITs) are relevant for planning. Actually, though, MRP doesn't really care much whether sales requirements come from a Sales SA forecast schedule, a Sales SA JIT, or from a Sales Order schedule, it treats them mostly the same.

    And awhile run the MRP schedule line will be automatically create for raw materials in purchasing(MM) scheduling agreement.

    This is standard Purchasing Scheduling agreement functionality.

    In short, there is nothing special about the business scenario you propose. If you have already configured SD, PP, and MM in your system, there is probably no additional configuration required. The master data will depend on your detailed business requirements, and the business procedures will depend on your detailed business requirements.

    The biggest challenge in setting up Sales scheduling agreements with JITs is usually the incoming EDI setup. This setup is unrelated to planning. Likewise with Purchasing scheduling agreements; outgoing EDI (if implemented) is challenging; but is unrelated to planning. Planning is pretty straightforward.

    This post is not really related much to the PP forum. If you have a specific question about Sales SAs, you should post the question in a Sales forum. I you have a specific question about Purchasing SAs, or running MRP in conjunction with Purchasing SAs, you should post the question in an MM forum.

      SKA,

      041 and LA are pretty standard. It is not clear to me why you were previously unable to convert the LA planned order to a Production order. If you are unable to convert an LA planned order to a production order, then the problem has nothing to do with Sales Scheduling agreements.

      MRP does not create schedules on a Sales Scheduling agreement. Sales scheduling agreements are 'requirements' (demand elements). MRP generally creates 'procurement proposals' (supply elements).

      Whether MRP generate schedule line in Sales Scheduling agreement screen (VA33) automatically?

      No

      If SD maintain Schedule lines in Scheduling agreement (VA32), whether MRP generate plan against scheduling agreement or Schedule lines?

      I don't know what this question means. Schedule lines in a Sales Scheduling agreement are requirements. MRP will treat them like any other sales document schedule line (such as the schedule line found in a sales order).

      The procurement proposal that will be created by MRP is dependent upon your MRP settings in configuration, the Material master, and in the MRP run parameters. MRP, for instance, might create a planned order, or a purchase requisition, depending on procurement type in the Material master.

      I suggest you familiarize yourself with Sales scheduling agreements by reading SAP online help.

      For additional info about Sales Scheduling agreements, You should post the questions in an SD forum, since this is not a PP topic.
