MRP x ECM valid date

Dear Gurus,

I have a scenario here that is the following:

We do have make to order and run MD50 to generate planned orders based on delivery date in manufacturing sales order.

We also have ECM implemented to control BOM modifications and dependecies ruels as weel.

Is it possible to run the MRP considering a date in the past on sales order manufacturing and get the BOM list valid on that time.

For example, we have a sales order with delivery date set to the past, lets say 04/2012.We have an ECM implemented on 05/2012 that modifies the BOM list. Is it possible to run the MRP and get exactly the bom list on 04/2012, before the aprove of the ECM on 05/2012?

Kind regards

Hi Oliver,

It sounds intresting , i havent tried it , but you can give try , one suggestion is you need to allow production in past , so BOM explosion date will be 04/2012 and it sould pick the BOM component valid on 04/2012.

Give it a try and come back with findings.

Thanks

Oliver,

check in plant parameter, OPPQ, in bottom you will find , start in past allowed.

Also you have to specify the number of days allowed in the past in Scheduling parameter of plan order OPU5 at the bottom. And for production order scheduling parameter OPU3

Start date of order proposals allowed in the past

This indicator defines that the system does not automatically switch to forward scheduling if the order start date lies in the past for determining the basic dates.

With this indicator, backward scheduling is always used to determine the basic dates, even if the start date lies in the past.

Hope it will help you.

Thanks

Hi,

It is already set it. But I think that this is not changing anything.

Another clue?

Hi Oliver,

can you explain what results you are getting , when you are running MRP for sales order with past date?

what dates are appearing on plan order as well as what dates are there on production order?

in addition to configuration in previous post , Also you have to specify the number of days allowed in the past in Scheduling parameter of plan order OPU5 at the bottom. And for production order scheduling parameter OPU3

check and come back

Thanks

Ritesh
