MD61 backward-forward consumption

Former Member

Hello experts,

In MD61, my client created a planned independent requirement for a material with a planning period of month.

The requirement now is that they want to implement a backward-forward consumption. Example is that in the last week (W4) of month 1 (M1), an order is created, then it should consume first all the previous weeks in M1 (backwards). Then if all planned quantity are consumed in the past, it will consume from M1-W4 to the future (forwards).

Please advice on what to do. Points will surely be awarded. Thanks in advance!

Br,

LM

Hi,

You can use Planning Strategy 40,with consumption mode as '2'(Backwar/Forward) and backward consumption period as 21 days(or any thing relevant) n forward consumption Period as 7 days(or anything relevant).This will solve your problem.

Hello,

Thanks for your answers (points awarded). Can you provide me the steps on how to check/test the implementation if it is ok?

Hi

In material master. In MRP type you can use your consumption pattern and period. If you use strategy 40 It will automatically ask for the consumption mode. Use backward with consumption period and then forward with cosumption period.

The system automatically consume the PIR in backward first upto the specified period and start consuming the forward after the period.
