hi,

Rounding Profile: How does the System Calculate the Order Quantity?

You can enter a rounding profile in the material master record. This profile is used by the system to calculate the order proposal in the planning run. The rounding profile is defined in Customizing.

If, for example, the following rounding profile is defined in Customizing:

2 ® 5

32 ® 40

This means the following: from a requirement of 2 units, the system rounds up to 5 units, from a requirement if 32 units, it rounds up to 40 units. If the requirement lies below the first threshhold value, the system copies the original requirement value unchanged. If the requirement exceeds the first threshhold value, the system always rounds up. In the example below, ‘piece’ is used as the unit of measure.

Using these settings, the following situation can be organized: a material’s base unit of measure us 1 piece. The order is to be delivered in layers (one layer corresponds to 5 pieces) or in pallets (one pallet corresponds to 8 layers which corresponds to 40 pieces).

With these settings, the system calculates the order quantity according to the following table:

Requirement Order quantity

1--- 1

2--- 5

6--- 10

7--- 10

21--- 25

31--- 35

32--- 40

41--- 45

74--- 80

For a requirement of 7 pieces, the system checks how often 5 can be divided by 7. This results in an order quantity of of 5 pieces (1x5=5). The system rounds up the remaining 2 pieces to 5 pieces. Thus, for a requirement of 7 pieces, one order proposal is created for 10 pieces.

For a requirement of 74 pieces, the system checks how often 74 can be divided by 40. This results in an order quantity of 40 pieces (1x40=40). The system rounds up the remaining 34 pieces to 40 pieces. Thus, for a requirement of 74 pieces, an order proposal is created for 80 pieces.
