i am new to MM i will appreciate if someone can help with the steps to be taken for the following scenario. i want to have minimum stock level and maximum stock level, also have a re-order point. I want that whenever the minimum stock level is reached the system automatically generates a purchase requisition. what settings do i need to do to achieve this.
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
i want to have minimum stock level and maximum stock level,
... 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.
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.
