Special Procurement and In-House Production on the same plant?

Hi All,

There is a Plant A and Plant B. Plant A makes its own stock of material Z and sometimes gets it from Plant B as well through STO. For such cases where a plant gets stock from another stock, we have a special procurement type configured with the supplying plant. Now in material Z's master record (Plant A) I need in-house (E) and external (F) both WITH special procurement type. So I used X (both) and special procurement type. I got a warning that F is required. Saved it. Now when I enter a PIR on Plant A and run MRP, it directly made an STPO for Plant B instead of scheduling production at Plant A itself. There is no fixed criteria except capacity, Iguess. How can I solve this?



Hi Bilal,

There are lot of information about this Quota arrangement in the web, in, in SCN community and many other places on the Internet.

According to the rules of engagement, you should search before asking:

I put SAP Quota arrangement in google and here you have links with screenshots, documentation, etc..all about quota. E.g.:

Quota Arrangements - Material Requirements Planning (PP-MRP) - SAP Library

Your post will be rejected by the moderator if you don't follow this rules.

So please try with Quota and if that resolves your issue, please close this thread. If you have specific doubts about the Quota, you can open a thread, but try to find the response by your own before posting.

Kind Regards,
