Priyanka Paltanwale replied
The control parameters include:
Planning run type
You can choose whether all materials are to be planned or only those with MRP relevant changes.
NEUPL - its for total planning...
NETPL - Planning in PLanning horizon
NETCH - net change planning
Mostly we go for NETCH or NETPL...NEUPL is only used in case of planning for first time..Actually NEUPL is not used frequently because it cause lot of strain for full database for planning...
Creation indicator for procurement proposals for materials that are procured externally
You can choose whether planned orders, purchase requisitions or schedule lines should be created for materials that are procured externally.
Here as per your requirement you define whether you want any doc. to be generated or not...
Creation indicator for MRP lists
You can define whether MRP lists are to be created. IF this indicator is maintained then side by side the plannig will create the MRP list...
You can determine how the system is to deal with procurement proposals (planned orders, purchase requisitions, scheduling agreement lines) from the last planning run, which are not yet firmed, in the next planning run.
You can choose basic date calculation or lead time scheduling.
hope it helps...
