Source Determination - Source list not considering while MRP run  

14:20 // utsav agrawal

Hi,

I have maintained Quota arrangement for V1 and V2 vendors and in source list Vendor V3.

While MRP run in MD03 it is creating PR and doing source dtermination only for V1 and V2 vendors, It is not considering vendor V3.

While MRP run it is generating PR's for V1 and V2 and after that it is creating Planned order, but it should create another PR for vendor V3 from Source list.

Where i am missing.

I maintain Quota arrangement for vendor V3 also.As quota arrangement has the highest precedence.

Hey,

What if i have maintained 2 vendors in Quota arrangement and 3rd vendor in source list...

While MRP run For PR creation it will consider 1 and 2 nd vendor from Quota arrangement, and in quota arrangement if Maximum quantity exceeds then whether it will consider vendor from source list or not???

No it will not conside the source list.

It will consider the quota arrangement two vendors only.

Hi,

If your allocated qty in QA exceeds maximum qty SAP uses source list - provided your settings are proper (record in source list is MRP relevant and vendor is marked as fixed vendor).

I tested the same and it works fine.

Hi Csaba,

Re: "If your allocated qty in QA exceeds maximum qty SAP uses source list - provided your settings are proper (record in source list is MRP relevant and vendor is marked as fixed vendor)."

I checked my all settings as per mentioned, all are done but still while running MD03 it is creating PR's up till allocated qty in QA , and after that it is creating planned order, but it has to create PR and source should be from Source list.

Where i am wrong?

Hi Uts,

Please check:

- Allocated quantity and maximum qty in QA for each of your vendors. SAP will use source list only if allocated quantities exceed maximum quantities defined for the vendors. Please check these after MRP run

- Check validity date of the source list record (set e.g. 2009.01.01-9999.01.01)

- Check whether vendor is marked as fixed vendor (EORD-FLIFN or EORD-FRESW in case of plant-vendor)

- Check whether EORD-AUTET has value "1"

It doesn't matter whether MRP generates PldOrds or PurReqs, proper source of supply should be determined.

You can run MRP with parameters: 1; 3; 1; 3 in MD02.

I don't think any config would be necessary to consider source list. If SAP doesn't want to consider it, I suggest you to delete the QA and try to run MRP until you get assigned source for PurReqs trough source list.

After that you can create the QA again and hopefully it will work.

Csaba

Hi,

Ihave checked all settings as mentioned , all are maintained..

But my question is , while MRP run SAP has to consider source list only if allocated quantities exceed maximum quantities defined for the vendors in QA. But it is not considering .

Is this SAP BUG.??

One more Question, While creating PR manually, whether source determination is possible by  Quota arrangement or not. ??

Did you try my suggestion (run MRP w/o existing QA and with existing source list)? Please try it and check whether it is working or not. Please tell us the result of your test.

(additionally) as for source determination you can check:

MRP: automatic source determination - OSS note 206684

FAQ: source determination in purchaing - OSS note 457110

Source determination via QA in the MRP - OSS note 496898

QA invalid: no source assignment - OSS note 304561

SAP online help

Your second question:

Please check MARC-USEQU of your material (and settings behind it). From value "2" to "4" SAP should consider it in standard system.

Regards,

Csaba

Hi,

I have tested as per your instructions..

I have runned MRP in MD03 it has created PR's for QA and next to it it created some planned orders..

I save it and checked allocated qty in QA...All the allocated quantity = Max qty in QA.

Now i runned MRP in MD03 it's still showing me previous PR's..

I tried to delete QA also, but it is not deleting as it is saying "The quota arrangement item 001 cannot be deleted because it is active in the system (that is, the quota-allocated quantity is not zero)."

Re: Second question, i changed the Quota arr usuage indicator from 3 to 4, still it is not considering while Manual creation of PR.

Is any more settings require??

I would suggest yout to test the source list in connection with another material for which no QA exists. Check whether MRP uses it.

If it is OK, try to maintain a similar QA for it and test what happens during MRP run. You can use sandbox environment.

QA should be considered during manula PurReq if you mark the "Source determination" check box in ME51N But please be aware of this:

http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_04/helpdata/EN/75/ee116c55c811d189900000e8322d00/frameset.htm

In connection with the quota arrangement, the splitting quota is only relevant to Materials Planning, not to Purchasing. In Materials Planning, requirements can be split up among various vendors. This is not possible in Purchasing.

Hi Csaba,

I tried with new material, i created infor record and source list...and tried MRP..

It is determining the source mentioned in the source list...

So....after Quota arrangement why it is not considering source list.
