    Use a Reorder point MRP type, such as VB.  Set reorder point in the Material master to the level of stock below which you do not wish to go (minimum).  Set maximum level in the Material Master.  Use lot size of HB.  Run MRP regularly (daily or weekly, depending on your needs).

        For same lot size and MRP type, you can't achieve your requirement.

         

        PD comes under normal MRP

         

        where as your requirement comes under consumption based planning

         

        In case if  you doesn;t have historic value, then go ahead with expert Dogboy49 suggestion,

         

        If you have historic value then choose MR type as VM, and maintain forecast value, and and maintain historic data in consumption

        1381,

        Your requirements:

        i want to have minimum stock level and maximum stock level,

        and

        ... lot size is EX lot for lot order qty. Is there no way do maintain as per my requirement with this MRP type and lot size

        are by definition incompatible.  EX by definition means that when you have a shortage, the system will propose exactly enough to meet the shortage.  If the shortage is for a quantity greater than the max, the system will still cover the shortage.  It is possible, then, that stock will exceed max from time to time.

         

        Within PD, you can get similar functionality to 'reorder point' by placing your 'minimum' number as 'Safety stock'.  When the projected available stock falls below Safety stock quantity, the next MRP run will propose a replenishment order.

    HI,

     

    In materials planning, the maximum stock level is used only if you have chosen Replenish to maximum stock level as the lot-sizing procedure; that is, you have entered HB as the lot size key.

    You have to use Manual reorder point planning

    In MRP -1 Select MRP type as VB and lot size as

    HB     Replenish to maximum stock level

     

    In MRP 1 & 2 view, you have to maintain the Maximum stock level & Min safety stock. And then run MRP either manually or batch job on your convenient time

    The result of the run is PR would be generated based on the stock availability, if the stock falls below safety stock PR will get triggered.
