1842595 - MRP Run Does Not Create Any Proposals.


For a product you have demand in a planning area, but MRP run is not creating any planning proposals.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Supply Planning.
  2. Select the View Products.
  3. Show All Products.
  4. Find the product XYZ.
  5. Select the Product and choose Open. In the product planning details screen, you can see that there is demand.
  6. Select Run Planning--> Single BoM Level or Multi BoM. System does not show any error message but it is not creating any proposal for the demand.


In the product master data under Planning, you have maintained as Consumption Based Planning with the Reorder Point Quantity as XX. So MRP will create planning proposal only when stock reaches below the reorder point. Currently, stock is above the reorder point, that is why MRP is not generating any proposals. Please note that in Consumption Based Planning, demands like sales order, dependent demand, forecast demand etc are not considered.


System is working as designed.
