Lot for lot order qty: EX

System will create a planned order equal to demand or req qty as a single planned order.

If you create demand for 80 qty, system will create planned order for 80 qty as a single order.

Fixed lot size: FX

Say fixed lot size 10. If demand is 100 when MRP run system will create 10 planned orders due to fixed lot size of 10.

Say Ordering a Oil barrel - it is 200 litres. Not possible to order for 180 or 190 litres. Like this situation fixed lot size will use.


Min & max lot size used in reorder point planning.

Say to procure a material considering transport charge, to equalize that, we have to order atleast this much qty. This is min order qty.
