Subcontracting requirements does not consider plant's inventory

Hello,

I am writing this to seek for advices for my current scenario. I have a material with below condition:

1. Parent material A consists of component B

2. Material A I have maintained a valid purchasing info record with Auto Sourcing checked, and create a valid BOM that contains component B, as well as a valid production version

3. For component B, I have maintained the subcontracting MRP area (type 03) in the material master. In the MRP area, I maintained the special procurement type as '30'

Now that for component B, there is an inventory, says 1500 units in the storage location. And because of the POs of material A, there is a subcontracting requirement (MRP element 'SubReq') of component B, says 2000 unit shown in MD04. 

When MRP has executed, it proposed a PR with 2000 units to fulfill the SubReq. It does not consider the stock in the inventory.

So, I would like to understand, will there be a way to allow MRP to consider the inventory? Any advice is much appreciated

Thank you

Hi,

Ensure planning strategy and safety stock in material master. check which planning strategy you are using or share MRP view to understand your issue.

Hi Raheel,

Thank you for your reply.

My planning strategy is PD in my material master, and I do not maintain safety stock. I have uploaded a screen shot in my thread, it is about the screen from my MD04. My question is, although the PRs are created under the subcontracting MRP area is what I try to achieve, but I do have stock in my plant as well, so I am thinking, before create new PR, is there a way to allow MRP to consider my stock first?

Thank you
