Planned order created after mrp run instead of purchase req

Hi All,

I am facing a strange problem about planned order being created after mrp run jobs runs in background instead of purchase req. This is happening randomly. In the material master MRP view 2 procurement type is F and in the varient for the MRP job the in Purchase requisition control parmater 1 is marked that is purchase requisition. Also planning file is having the entry once there is shortage and hence MRP run is there always if there is shortage of material.

With Regards

hi Tarun,

Normally it shd not happen...

But try using the Define consumption mode and period of adjustment in the IMG for MRP that no planned orders are to be created within a particular period of time for planned independent requirements, for which no firmed receipt elements or firmed procurement proposals exist. The system then creates planned orders for customer requirements only. You can determine this for each plant or for each MRP group....

Also confirm the Procurement type, check the source list for the MRP, also check the other releated parameters ...

Hope it helps...
