Consumption of demand without sales order
My company in is the beginning phase of planning inventory. We have never used MD61 nor had to populate a strategy group. I am trying to find a way to consume a LSF/VSF demand. We currently use work orders for demand and then issue from inventory to that work order and that removes the reservation which in turns removes the demand. What I am trying to do is put a monthly demand in the system, have it create purchase requisitions, then we create the PO, remove the demand once I have received the material and then be able to issue to the work order to remove from inventory. I have tried different strategy groups and other things but I cannot get my demand to be removed. It stays in the planning for the material. If I need to provide one of my MRP tabs for more understanding, I can.
I have attached a sample of MD03. in this situation, the demand created a PR then PO and now all the material is in stock to be used. The problem is my VSF demand is still there.
I can understand the issue now . In your screen shot I could see the requirement type LSF which do not allow consumption of PIR's.
So I may propose to change the requirement type to VSF in MD62 and keep the remaining settings as I mentioned in my previous post, will allow to consume the PIR's by the 261.
Please check and let me know your queries.
