Availiability check problem because of MRP area

Postby Noviceinsap » Mon May 24, 2004 6:10 am

Dear all,

Availability check is not confirming any quantity.
Also,

In ATP screen....the MRP area taken by default is theplant. The PP consultant said that the plant is defaulted as the MRP area type 01. The system allocates this and cannot be deleted.


But if i go to the item level, shipping view and input the storage location.
Then the avaliability check confirms the amount, also the ATP screen, the MRP area changes in the back ground to the MRP area to which the storage location is assigned.

Is there any solution to this??

Hi,

What is the MRP type activated to your MRP area... If you activated at storage location then you may have to default the Storage location in the storage location through Exit... If it is plant level then it should...

You post this in PP forum also to take the correct solution in MRP...
Regards,
Murali

Also go through this help file on MRP area...

Define MRP Areas
In this IMG activty, you define the MRP area for every plant for which you would like to carry out material requirements planning separately.

When creating an MRP area, you enter the number, which must have at least 5 digits to avoid any overlapping with the plant MRP area, the description and the MRP area type. You must also enter a storage location as a receiving storage location. This storage location must, however, belong to the MRP area. Finally, you assign the storage location or the vendor number of the subcontractor to the MRP areas.

You asssign the materials to the MRP areas by creating a segment for the MRP area in the material master record.

There are basically three types of MRP areas:

Type 01 for Plant
The plant MRP area initially contains the plant together with all its storage locations and stock with subcontractors. The plant MRP area is created automatically when you convert the existing planning file entries to planning file entries for MRP areas.
When you have defined MRP areas for storage locations and for subcontractors and you have assigned the materials, the plant MRP area is reduced by exactly this number of subcontractors and storage locations, as they are now to be planned separately.
If you have not assigned a material to an MRP area, that is, you have not created an MRP area segment in the material master record, the material will continue to be planned in the plant MRP area.
Type 02 for Storage Locations
You choose this type for MRP areas that consist of one or more storage locations. A storage location can only be assigned to one MRP area.
Type 03 for Subcontractors
You choose this type if you would like to define an MRP area for a subcontractor. You can only assign one subcontractor to an MRP area of the subcontractor type.
Example

You specifically want to plan the requirements for components of an assembly line. To do this, you define an MRP area of the type storage location and assign the storage location from which you are taking the components that are required on the line.

Requirements

You have converted the existing planning file entries at plant level to planning file entries at MRP area level.
You have activated material requirements planning for MRP areas.
Activities

To define a new MRP area, proceed as follows:

1. Starting from the MRP area overview, choose New entries.
2. Enter the number and description of the MRP area. You can choose an alphanumeric MRP area number; it must, however, be 5 digits long.
3. Choose Save and then Exit.
4. Call up the IMG activity Define MRP areas again and select the MRP area and choose Storage location if you want to define an MRP area of the storage location type or choose Subcontractor if you want to define the MRP area for a subcontractor.
5. You assign one or several storage locations to an MRP area of the storage location type. You assign a subcontractor to an MRP area of the subcontractor type by entering the supplier number in the field MRPa. Sub.
6. Save the entries and choose Back.
Further notes

Due to the conversion of the planning file entries at plant level to MRP area level, the system has already created an MRP area of the type plant for every plant.

Murali

Hi,

Refer the OSS note 387482... It will help you out...

SAP Note No. 387482 25.05.2004 Page 1
________________________________________________________________________

Number 387482
Version 2 from 19.12.2002
Status Released for Customer
Set on 19.12.2002

Language EN
Master language DE
Short text MRP area and storage location determination in user
exit

Responsible SAP AG
Component SD-SLS
Sales
________________________________________________________________________

Long text

Symptom
You use MRP areas. At the same time, a determination of the storage
location is implemented in the user exit. For this, however, you must
not use user exit USEREXIT_MOVE_FIELD_TO_VBAP in MV45AFZZ. As a result,
the system executes the availability check for incorrect MRP areas or
error AG024 "No checking group is maintained for product &1, plant &2 in
matl master" occurs in the availability check.
Other terms
VBAP-LGORT, LGORT, BERID, MTVFP
Reason and Prerequisites

Solution
Do not use user exit USEREXIT_MOVE_FIELD_TO_VBAP but user exit
USEREXIT_SOURCE_DETERMINATION (MV45AFZB) to determine the storage
location. If the storage location is filled here, the system can
determine the MRP area correctly that is, depending on the storage
location.
For this purpose, a plant must be known. You may have to make sure in
the user exit that the plant is determined.
FV45PF0V_VBAP-WERKS_ERMITTELN may be useful.

Postby k_kumar77 » Wed Jul 12, 2006 5:53 am

HI Murali,

I'm Kumar here, can I default the storage location value to 0100 to all my sales orders I create, rather than me inputting these values at each line item level.
Please help as I've to create many large orders and this would help me save some time.

Regards,

Kumar. :D
