First a disclaimer - I'm by no means an SAP expert. My background is in purchasing and materials management. I'm just trying to get SAP to do what my client needs!
Here's the scenerio. My client does not want to use safety stocks. They are looking for an MRP type that allows for a reorder point to be entered manually, and where on hand quantities, on order quantities, and current requirements are considered to trigger a purchase by the buyers. In addition, they want to use MD06 and MD04 to expedite shortages when current requirements exceed on-hand quantities.
PD requires a safety stock and prompts the buyers to expedite purchase orders even when there is existing, available, inventory - just because they are below safety stock.
VB doesn't seem to alert the buyers to current requirements as long as there is enough on order.
I'm looking at using Lot Size HB, and have considered V1 MRP Type, but wanted to consult with the experts here first.
Thanks in advance,
