MD51 logic


Dear All,

Can anyone please help me to understand the logic behind the MD51 processing?

I mean for a normal MRP process, we have a trigger point like requirements type either from MTS/MTO strategy or relevant MRP settings.

We are using PS partly and we have managed to transfer the WBS element from header material to all dependent materials via suitable settings through SD and PP MRP configuration. We are processing the MRP with MD01/02. But user want to run MRP with MD51.

We are creating sales orders with WBS assignment and using WBS BOM. Routing will be created with CA01.

We have tried to run MD51 in Test system and results are OK, but i am afraid if it will work properly in Production system or not?

I have read that for project MRP, activities and networks are necessary, but we are not using them for our configuration.

Kindly guide whether we should go ahead with MD51 or with normal MRP (MD01/02). If with MD51, then with current configuration, will it be OK for future?

Best Regards,
