In MD04, the first column (i.e. Date) can meant either a receipt date or a requirement date.
I am having problem to try to recognize if a particular row in this tabe is belong to either one of the above as because there are so many MRP elements.
In another word, how do I tell from first glance on MD04 that this date is a Receipt date if the MRP element is this and that, and this date is a Requirement Date if the MRP is this and that.
Can you category for me what MRP element is belong which of the date?
You see the planned/requirement date on the first column.
Planned / requirement date = planned delivery time(mrp 2 view) + PO processing time + GR processing time.
Delivery date which automatically picked in PR/PO = planned delivery time + PO processing time
Hence always planned if you verify the delivery date in PR/PO and the planned delivery date, its always diffferent if you entered some value for GR processing time. It will be same if GR processing time is Zero.
Hope this helps.
I would filter as follows -
Positive qty - Receipts - Delivery date in case of MRP elements related to external procurement (like PR, PO, Schedule lines, SNs, etc); Basic finish date in case of MRP elements related to internal procurement (like Production orders, Planned orders, Simulative orders, etc)
Negative qty - Requirements - Requirement date as in MRP elements like SOs, Reservations, Dependent requirements, PIRs, etc.
