MRP with stocks in other plant
Scenario: 5 stocking Plants + 1 Manufacturing plant under a company code.
For a finished product, all 6 Plants have stock.
For MRP, the demand of the finsihed product from all 6 plants is combined and fed as PIR feeding at manufacturing plant.
Question: How to make SAP to consider stock of all plants and generate the planned order for the difference Qty?
E.g. PIR at Mfg plant = 100 Nos.
Stocks at 5 Stocking plants = 50 nos
Stocks at 1 Mfg plant = 10 nos
Hence on MRP run, system to generate planned order for 100 - (50+10) = 40 Nos at mfg Plant.
Generally demand should be entered Materail/Plant wise, so that planning becomes automized, otherwise, how will the person in Manufactruing plant know for which plant what quantity he has to produce?
1. Enter PIR for materails Individual Plant wise.
2. Configure Special Procurement Key 40 in such a that supplying plant is the Manufacturing Plant. Use transaction OMD9 for this. Assign this Special Procurement key in the MRP2 view of the Material Master of the Stocking Plants.
Now if MRP is run, Planned order is created in the Manufacturing Plant based on the Stock Transfer request from Individual Stocking Plants. The only limitation here is that Stocks among the Stocking Plants are not considered, but Demand and Stock with respect to Individual plant is considered for MRP.
