Planned Independent requirements and Fiscal Year Variants


We want to control where within the period the VSF demand is placed when we enter Planned Independent requirements in transaction MD61/MD62 using the period indicator (which uses the Fiscal period from Material Master).

It places demand for the first day of the period, but because of Goods receipt processing time and / or the use of planning calendars on Materials, the demand is often pushed back into the previous fiscal period which is undesirable.

It is not possible to assign a different fiscal variant in the material master as we get the error 'Consumption values already exist for fiscal year variant WA'
