MRP - manage time before production start
For my production, I have an external service provider. The issue is that the service provider has other customers. When I send an order, I have to wait about 3 weeks until the production really start.
I would like to know how I can manage this time in SAP.
I would like MRP to create purchase requisitions (for example) 3 weeks after the creation of the order for the service provider, so when the production really start.
Thank you in advance,

If I understood your issue correctly, you don't want to have newly created planned orders on the next three weeks, that's right?
Did you already tested a planning time fence with a proper MRP type? Depending on the MRP type firming type defined on customizing (transaction OMDQ) you can have newly created planned orders created only outside of the time fence.
You can try with MRP type P1 and a time fence of three weeks.
