Planned order - Exclude from Rescheduling

Hello Gurus..

We use planned independent requirements to get an understanding of what needs to be produced in the coming weeks. When MRP is run, it creates the planned orders to satisfy the independent requirements, which is fine. But when there is a shortage of material, system is trying to reschedule one of the planned order (for  independent requirement) to satisfy the demand and the quantity is too high on the planned order, which is causing us to have stock at the end of day.

E.g.: If there is shortage for 100 each on 07/31/13 and there is a planned order for 08/02/13 for 5000 eaches (for independent req), then system is rescheduling the 5000 eaches to 07/31 so that it can cover 100 each shortage on 07/31. So end of the 07/31, we would have 4900 eaches sitting on the floor, which we dont want.

So i was thinking if we can exclude only the planned orders that are for independent requirements from rescheduling..

Please suggest how this can be achieved..

Also, in some cases when MRP reschedules a planned order or a purchase requisition with more than required qty, it causes us to have ending stock, which we don't want. How can we achieve zero ending stock every day?

thank you...

Hi Vicky

Please take a look on the following link that I have created about the rescheduling check:

http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/x/xAJhE

You will find details about the customizing to exclude planned orders from the rescheduling check on this WIKI.

Also, there is no quantity check during the rescheduling and indeed, system can propose the rescheduling of a planned order with more quantity than the necessary. The only way to avoid that is deactivating the rescheduling check on customizing.

Thank you Caetano..

What is the standard SAP process for rescheduling..In general is rescheduling deactivated or used commonly?

Hi Vicky

It is not very common to deactivate the rescheduling completely. That would lead to new planning elements to be generated very often. It is most common to define a short rescheduling horizon or to exclude some specific elements from the rescheduling check.
