3036557 - Purchasing info record is not considered by MRP

Symptom

There is purchasing info record existing for a material, however, after MRP run, the info record is not considered.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a purchasing info record for a material
  2. Run MRP for this material and in the generated purchase requisition, the info record is not considered.

Cause

In the purchasing info record, the indicator "automatic sourcing" was not set or it was overruled by soure list.

Resolution

You have following options to control whether purchasing info record is considered in planning run:

Option 1: If source list doesn't exist or is not in valid date, indicator "automatic sourcing" in the purchasing info record controls whether info record is considered in planning run.

If indicator "automatic sourcing" is activated, purchasing info record is considered by MRP
If indicator "automatic sourcing" is deactivated, purchasing info record is not considered by MRP


Option 2: If source list exists and is in valid date, it can overrule indicator "automatic sourcing" in corresponding purchasing info record.

If source list is not relevant to MRP(indicator 'MRP' = 'initial'), purchasing info record is not considered by MRP whatever indicator "automatic sourcing" is set or not.
If source list is relevant to MRP(indicator 'MRP'= '1'), purchasing info record is considered by MRP whatever indicator "automatic sourcing" is set or not.
