MD04 - Rescheduling Date in Past

Hello,

I have a question regarding a material (HAWA)  in MD04.  The "Rescheduling" date is in the past with the exception of 10.

Current Status of material:

  • Stock on hand = 2
  • IndReq = 11
  • PO Item = 2,544

I was expecting our nightly MRP to look at this PO and set the "Rescheduling" date to the current date or to the last time MRP executed.

I have attached a screen shot hoping this will help.

Question:  Does anyone know why this material would not be "Rescheduled" for the current date and subsequently update as MRP runs?

Thanks for the help.

Jerry,

From what source of information did you acquire this expectation?  Can you cite any SAP documentation that would lead you to this conclusion?


In general, the rescheduling date is the date that the supply element SHOULD have in order to be able to meet the requirement.  In your screenshot, the requirement (the PIR) exists in the past.


In many companies, it would be unlikely for MRP to generate such dates; since it usually makes little sense to have past due independent requirements.  Such companies reorganize their requirements regularly (Weekly?  Monthly?).  Ask yourself: "How legitimate can it be to 'plan' to supply a forecast that exists in the past?"  If you really do have a business model that supports PIRs in the past, you should probably let the dates of your planned orders to also exist in the past.


Best regards,
