MRP Area

Dear Expert,

Our organization were running the MRP on single plant i.e., plant code =1100 , But now we have purchase warehouse to which we have given new plant code as 1101. Now we want to configure both this plant in MRP areas so please guide me on following points:

1. How can we maintain this two plants (1100 & 1101) in MRP Areas

2. MRP Area should be maintained in such a way that system should consider stock of both plants (1100 & 1101) during MRP run. Also we want purchase requisition to be generated for 1101 plant instead of 1100 plant

3 We have maintained all BOM, component code, Semifinished code, Finished Goods in 1100 planr code. So do we again have to extent or maintain all this code and BOM in new code of 1101 plant too.

All this activity I have to implement in two days time, so please provide me step and guidance involve for proper MRP run for MRP Area.

Regards,

Deepali patil

    I don't think MRP area concept would meet your requriement, you need to use special procurement key 40 for all the materials in plant 1100, so that if there is enough stock in plant 1100 then system will use it if not, then system will create a stock transfer reservation from 1101 and if there is not enough stock at 1101 system will create a PR in 1101.

      Hi jeevan,

      You are very close to my solution, But the above solution provided in your trailing tread by you i have tried, but the system is not considering the stock of 1100 plant. i want system to consider both plant stock.

      For example : if requirement is of 100 pc, stock in 1100 plant is 20 pc and in 1101 plant is 30 pc, then system should raise the PR of 50 pc in 1101 plant.

      Please help me i am eagerly waiting for your reply.

      Regards,

      Deepali.

    You're definitely staring at a dead-end tunnel.

    I would first suggest check why there is 2 plants created if the need is to have a consolidated view of stocks during material planning. If APO is implemented then its another ball game altogether. But I presume it is not implemented in your landscape.

    The special procurement key concept proposed above will help if its at single level, but if you want this feature at multi-level then it wont work. Even if you implement MRP areas it wont work.

    So before proceeding to head down the solution path, first clarify whether this stock checking is required at all levels of BOM or at a single level, also why the 2 plants solution has been implemented.

    Good luck.
