Former Member

Hello all,

Where and how can the account assignment categories of the PR's generated thru MRP be controlled? Our system is generating Purchase Requisitions (PR's) with account assignment category M and I would like to know whether this can be changed.

Thanks

HI,

Check if these PR's are geenrated as a result of Sales Order in Make to Order scenario.

Hello, yes they are - this is exactly what we would like to change... we would like to avoid having the PR linked to the SO it comes from... possible?

Hi,

That is the intention of MTO scenario. Procurement is always with respect to sales order.

Check the strategy group assinged to material master in MRP 3 view.

Check the configuration of this strategy group under Production>MRP>master data>Ind. reqt parameters> Planning strategy>define strategy> check the account assingment category assigned to the above strategy group.

why you dont want acc. ass. as M in PR's?

If it is make-to-order then the reference will come and this cannot be defaulted with blank at the time of MRP run.

Hello, we don't want an M because in our business several CustOrders are created against the same material on the same day and therefore several Purchase Requisitons get created as well --> we would lile to group those PR's in only 1 PR per material but this is aparently not possible if the account assignment category is not blank...

Any idea?

the material's individual collective requirements needs to be "2" and when MRP is run the reference of sales order will be removed and the PR will be combined. This is the way the std system functions.

Hello, we already tried this but the system keeps on creating 1 PR per CusOrd (and the PR keeps on having the SO as account assignment).

Could you please let me know whether there is something else to be customized or master data changed to achieve the behaviour you're mentioning?

Thanks

Marc:

It depends on the type of industry.

For normal production industry, the assignment of MRP generated PR Account assignment category is done using the following way:

T.code: OPJP

Config path: IMG>Production>Shop Floor Control>Integration>Define Account Assignment Cat. & Doc. Type for Requisitions

For process industry (PP-PI), the assignment of MRP generated PR Account assignment category is done using the following way:

T.code: O11C

Config path: IMG>Production Planning for Process Industries>Process Order>Integration>Define Account Assignment Category & Document Type for Requisitions

Hi ,

In SPRO --> Materials Managment ---> consumption based planninn --> Plant paramaters , there is an option to maintain the plant parameters for a particular plant . In this , in planning --> under external procurment , there is an option to enter the account assignemnt for non valuated materails which would be considered during the MRP .

Maintain this as required it it is not M .

Hari.
