To run MRP you need to setup certain prerquisies

1) Activate MRP for the plant under IMG>MM>CBP>Planning>Activate

2) Maintain the plant parameters under IMG>MM>CBP>Plant parameters

3) Maintain Material master with MRp 1 & 2 views with valid MRP type for eg Reorderpoint, Lot size , Scheduling etc

4) Maintain the Source list with valid source of supply and make it MRP relevant

5) Run Tcode MD01 to genearate PR if the demand exist ( example you set up reorder point with 500 pcs if stock comes down below 500 you can generate PR by running MRP)

6) To convert PR to PO you can use ME59n Manually or in Backround and make sure that all the prerequisites are met

7) Set up EDI/ALE setting with the help of ABAper to send the PO to external vendor.

You have to explore more before setting up the above procedure.

Hope it helps
