sap pp - MRP groups
Why do we use MRP groups & how it is related with MRP or Planning.
R Brahmankar replied
MRP group is responsible for seperate planning for the material. We create MRP group in OPPR with planning strategy, consumption mode, Planning horizon.
We assign the MRP group to Material master in MRP1 View
MRP groups are used when the plant division for planning is not enough for the division of the different materials MRP requirements. You assign different groups according to the requirements to run MRP (different Settings). These settings will be taken in account when you run MRP for single item or total planning.
On your MRP group, you will define the parameters for the MRP run. These parameters are calculated in accordance with the settings on your material master MRP views.
Hope it will help you.
