MRP: how to avoid Purchase orders/ Production orders generation
I would like to know how can I avoid the generation of purchase orders / production orders for MRP execution. I am interested in knowing which are going to be my future needs for a material running the MRP, but I am not interested in generating any new Purchase order / Production order.
I've been changing some parameters in the MRP 2 tab: procurement type, but I think that it is also related with MRP type or MRP group or both. With the procurement type I've only been able to change the purchase requisitions to planned orders and viceversa.
with MRP type ND the system will not plan the material and will not create neither planned orders nor purchase requisitions. However, if you created these before, when the material still had MRP type PD, then MRP will certainly also not delete these, because with ND it does not plan the material anymore. Thus you need to delete these manually. No new ones should show up afterwards with ND.
