Its entered in the MRP data in the MMR...

It controls all the look up(regarding MRP) ...or can say look after all the parameters for the generation of the MRP docs..related to PO's PR's etc...

It has all the authority to convert all the elemnts into further docs...

This role contains central functions in MRP for external procurement that are connected with particular responsibility. You can use these functions to control MRP from a higher level.

EXAMPLE :In Customizing for MRP, you can maintain a mail link to inform an MRP controller of the fact that a goods receipt has been posted for a missing part.

IF req. to send mails to mrp contoller you need to use workflow...use following link to see that procedure...

MRP controller is the person who is responsible for material requirement planning. He does the whole planning for the material. So Its mandatory to assign a MRP controller for the material used for material requirement planning.

You can run MRP run MRP controller wise also in MD01 - MRP Run

There you will get User Exit option, you can use following user exit.

LMDZU001 - User exits in additional plannin

Thanks & Regards,
