Replenish to Maximum stock level problem


I need some help understanding the "Replenish to maximum stock level" lot size.

we currently have this settings in the material master.

MRP Type: Manual reorder point planning

Re-order Point: 31,705

Lot Size : HB (Replenish to maximum stock level)

Minimum Lot size: 343

Maximum lot size: 0.00

Maximum stock level : 41403

The problem:

Example 1: The current available quantity is 25,948.

Because the available quantity is below the reorder point, MRP should generate a planned order of

41,403 - 25,948 = 15,455. But the system only generates a planned order for 6147. which brings the available quantity barely above the re-point.

Example 2: The current available quantity is 30,223

The system generated a planned order of 1,492.00. Which is again barely above the re-order point.

Shouldn't the system be creating a planned order for the different in the available qty and the Maximum stock level? Is there anything else i should be looking at to fix the problem?

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
