PlR on Plant Level reduction

Hi Gurus,

I have one question regarding reduction of PlR.

Scenario: Material is setup in two plants Plant 1000 and Plant 2000

Material: Pump 1

Plant 1000: Procurement Type F

Special Procurement Key: Z1 (Procure it from Plant 2000)

Planned Independent Requirements created for Plant 1000 for any 6 month period. ( Jan 15 - June 15)

In month of Jan 2015 MRP runs on Plant 1000 and generates Purchase reqs for Plant 2000. MRP runs on Plant 2000 and generates planned orders. Planned orders are firmed and converted to production orders and processed in external system for further processing.,

Question: Planned Independent requirements still show are same quantities in Plant 1000. Is there a way that once Planned order for PIR are created that these PIR disappear?

  We cannot consume PIR in Plant 1000, when planned order is created in Plant 2000.

We have two work around option here.

  1. 1. When you run MRP plant 1000, it generates Purchase reqs which we can make it to consume PIR by maintaining below settings.

In material master MRP 3 view maintain Mixed MRP indicator as 1 in & In PIR Item details maintain consumption indicator as 3 which will consume PIR consumed when STO created on 1000 Plant.

  1. 2. You can use the Badi  MD_PIR_FLEX_CONS
