MRP generating planned orders not purch reqs

Post by ollkk » Tue Nov 22, 2011 3:56 am

I have a BOM with a finished good (A) that is planned using MPS and a component (B) that is planned using MRP.

The component MRP 2 view procurment setting is F: EXternal Procurement.

The settings for both MRP and MPS runs are the same: Create Purchase requisitions = 1

The scheduling key for A and B is 000.

When I run MPS, I am getting planned orders for my component. Any ideas? I am bamboozled.
Thanks,

Oll

Is the MRP Group settings overwriting plant level settings?

None of the materials use MRP groups.

Could you Please check your(Scheduling Margin Key Parameters) Opening Period & Planned Start Dates

=====================================================

Creation Indicator for Purchase Requisitions
For materials procured externally, this indicator controls whether the system:

creates purchase requisitions for the total planning horizon,
creates planned orders for the total planning horizon which are manually converted into purchase requisitions at a later date,
creates purchase requisitions within the opening period and planned orders outside the opening period.


Dependencies
In the single-item planning run, the system always uses the creation indicator specified in the initial screen of the planning run. The creation indicator maintained in the MRP group is not taken into account.

Hi there,

The schedule margin key is 000 for all materials, i.e. 000 days opening period.
Thanks,

Oll
