BOM not exploding while doing Cross Plant Planning

Hello PP Experts,

I am working on cross plant planning scenario .

In which I have 3 plants, Plant A is planning plant i.e sales order will come to plant A and plant B and plant c will be production plant and again after production the material will be sold from plant A.

I have used special procurement key 80 and did settings in material master and followed some links already on forum.When i m running MRP with MD50 the requirement for raw material is not getting generated by the system.

Please help..!!

Hello Amit,

There would not be any problem, MTO materials will be only plan by MD50 for dependent MTS materials you need to run MD02.

However you have reorder point planning for that you need to run MRP through MD01 or MD03.

MRP type like VB i.e. reorder type is a consumption based planning procedure. For consumption based planning materials will only be planned in MD01 or MD03 for that particular material ,whenever stock will fall below the reorder level.

So plan sales order through MD50 and then run plant level MRP through MD01 or background job.

Best Regards,
