Firmed planned orders getting created
For few materials...when checked in MD04, there are few Firmed planned orders. For example afeter MRP was ran there are few firmed planned orders on 10/30/2008...however thera are normal planned orders on 11/20/2008.
Please help me to understand...why the firmed planned orsers got created on 10/30/2008. How can i eliminate this??

Please check what MRP type you are using. If you are using P1 to P4 MRP types & have planning time fence in material master then system will firm planned orders within the time fence.
Hence if you have 45 days as planning time fence with one of the MRP types, MRP firms all orders before 10/30/2008 & normal planned orders after 10/30/2008.
If you dont need firming by MRP use mrp type which have no firming like PD
Hope this helps. If yes please award points. Else please come back with more questions.
