Re: Firmed Planned Orders

Hi Johnny, They are random. Often our plan is done late and we are struggling to get the components and run into these situations where we have to substitute components. As a work-around, I will create a report showing differences between PIR quantities and Planned Order quantities, indicating a cha...

Re: ZPROCESS

Hi Anu, you will need to talk to your resident programmer/developer/ABAPper about that, they would know how to modify your custom program.

Re: Firmed Planned Orders

Thanks for the response!

We are updating components in planned orders due to substitutions, where we are not getting the component planned according to the BOM.

So we want to keep the updated components, but quantities would need to be adjusted in case our PIRs change.

Firmed Planned Orders

Is it possible to fix the components of a planned order after changing them, yet still have MRP update planned order quantities if the demand changes?

In the header, under firming, we cannot uncheck the Plnd Order indicator while the Component indicator is checked. Is there any workaround for that?

Re: If the BOM Header base quantity is changed...

Hi Karen,

As far as I know, the base quantity and component quantities are independent from each other, so no recalculation of component quantities takes place after updating base quantities in the header.

Possibly basic question about PReq -> PO

Help... I have a Purchase Req 1234 for 500 widgets. It has been converted to PO 5432, which is also visible in the "Status" tab of the PReq. PO 5432 is for 25 widgets. So one would think that there must be an open PReq qty of 475. However, the PReq states that all 500 widgets have been ordered, and ...

Re-using material numbers

After 15 years on SAP, our (self-imposed quasi 5 digit) FERT material number range is about to run out. We are probably good for another 1.5 years, so no rush. There are different ways to deal with that. We can start a different range, add a digit or two, etc. However, there are a LOT of unused mate...

Excluding certain batches from MRP

Like the subject says, I want to be able to exclude certain batches to be considered as available on-hand inventory by MRP. I was looking into "restricted" batch status, but this won't work, because we still want to be able to move and sell those batches. "Blocked" stock status also won't work, beca...

Re: Storage location inventory blocking

Thanks for your response HT! For some reason I am not getting notifications for thread responses anymore. Maintaining SLOCs via security is probably something I would want to avoid, even though it's a bit of job security. :P Could you be a bit more specific in the BAdI activation? Are you talking ab...

Storage location inventory blocking

Hey guys, wondering if you had suggestions for this scenario. Seems simple enough, but... I am trying to keep folks from doing PIA's in a specific SLOC. Yep, that's it. I don't want to block materials, or do inventory and block movements during that inventory, or delete an SLOC, or block all movemen...

Re: Info record adoption question

Argh. There is a lot of config involved. OMFI. Default values for purchasers. User parameters EVO T160V. T001W KKOWK, SPINF. EINA EINE EKPO EIPA. Could it be any more complicated?

Just going to have a cleanup program that deletes the offensive texts in the sales org level info records.

Re: Info record adoption question

No, the plant-specific info records are fine. It's the purchasing org level that defaults into plants that don't have an info record created. Source lists, nah, we have many plants, many many vendors, and many more materials. They always change, and it would be a maintenance nightmare. My solution s...

Re: Info record adoption question

Thank you very much for your response, I will do some testing with the different options in OMFI, and study the OSS note as well. This seems to apply more to info record updates . Let me try to rephrase my specific issue - How can I prevent PO texts from info records created in plant A from being ad...
