Planned order creation instead of a PR thru MRP


Have got below issue.

Thru MRP run for procurred items system is creating planned order instead of purchase requistions even though all system & master data settings are set properly.

Master data settings:

MRP Type: VB(just mentioning this as for PD materials this issue is not observed)

Scheduling Margin key: 000 - float period is 0

Procurement type: F

Special procurement type: blank

Source list maintained with fixed vendor

MRP job parameters:

Creation of PR: 2- PR's in opening period

Even though above setting is chosen in my view system should create PR as the scheduling margin key is 000 (with zero opening period)

Does any one came across this issue?




Hello Raghava,

Please refer consulting note 23922 - MRP: Creation indicators, PReq. or planned order

An opening period of 0 days means that, together with the indicator "Create req. order" from "2", purchase requisitions can be created only if the opening date is the same as the planning date.

For reorder point planning, the requirement date is set to the planning date when there is a shortfall of

Therefore, if scheduling is carried out on a non-working day, the requirement date is set to a non-working day and the delivery date or start and opening dates are set to the previous working day.

As a result, the opening and planning dates no longer fall on the same day and the system generates corresponding planned orders.

To avoid this phenomenon, you should always maintain the purchase requisitions creation indicator in the planning group for the affected materials or you should maintain an opening period greater than 0.

reorder point.

Best Regards,
