I have one query regarding system MRP behaviour.
In our system for XYZ material is present with Manual re order point planning and reorder point is 4 PC. So ideally PR should be generated when 4 stock reduces further to 3.Also the Maximum stock level is 6 is maintained in Material master data of XYZ material.
Now when currently my stock level is 4 for xyz mateial and i have resevation against maintence order for this material
on 30.05.2011 for 16 PC and also on 06.06.2011 for 16 Pc again.
So when quanity gets reduced from 4 to 3 then system should gnerate a PR ( as re order point is 4)
For how much qunatity PR will be generated and how it will be issued. 1) Will system will order 35 PC as 16 + 16 PC are already required and reservation has been made for same plus 3 more for replenishment so that total comes out to be 6( max level reached again)
Or there will be some different behaviour. Please share your knowledge for same.
Thanks & Regards

When the stock falls below the reorder point there will be a entry in Planning file and when you run the MRP it will create the the PR for the material in your stated case for 1.
On the given date for the material the MRP elements will be generated considering the availabilty and GR on that particular date so it can be 35 also if you don't run the MRP before.
