Dear,

MRP type define the way of planning of material like PD which is relevent to MRP and ND which is non relevent to MRP. Like wise VV for forecaste and VM and VB we use for consumption base pllaning.

If you want consumption base planning then you have to set an MRP type for the material in the MRP Type field in the material master (View MRP 1) to Reorder point planning, for example VB or VM. But we want to use MRP procedure then we need to maintain PD.

MRP types : In the MRP types different categories are there

1) Produce to Demand

2) Consumption based planning

3) Forecast based planning

It is procedure that you set in the system on how the Material is planned

- Reorder Point

- Seasonal requirement

- Replenishment

- Forecast Based

- Master production Scheduling

SPRO --> MM --> Consumption based planning --> Master data --> Define MRP types

or you can check in material master MRP1 view by pressing F4.

Hope clear to you.

Following are the major categories of MRP Type:

1. MPS - Master Production Scheduling

2. MRP - Material Requirements planning

3. Consumption based planning - (there are two types)

i) Forecast based planning

ii) Reorder point planning

a) Manual Reoderpoint planning

b) Automatic reorderpoint planning

Hope this helps.

Revert if any doubt or need more details

hi

It determines whether and how the material is planned. You have the following options:

Manual reorder point planning

Automatic reorder point planning

Forecast-based planning

Material requirements planning with forecasts for unplanned consumption

Master production scheduling (MPS)

The following MRP types are defined in the SAP standard delivery:

ND => no MRP

PD => MRP

VB => manual reorder point planning

VM => automatic reorder point planning

V1 => Automatic reorder point planning including external requirements

V2 => Automatic reorder point planning without external requirements

VV => forecast-based planning

1. If necessary change the settings in the standard SAP syste.

2. Add new MRP types to suit your requirements.
