2479455 - MRP is not creating any Production Proposal


You have the available stock as 5 ea for the product XXX in Planning Area ABC. As you have a Sales Order which is selling this 5 ea and the Reorder Point Quantity maintained in product master data is 5 ea, it is expected that the system creates a production Proposal.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supply Planning
  2. Select Products
  3. Search for the Product XXX in Planning Area ABC
  4. Select Open
  5. Choose Run Planning
  6. Choose Single BoM Level
  7. Select Ok
  8. See no Production Proposal is created


You have maintained the Planning Procedure in product master data as Consumption-Based Planning. Consumption-Based Planning only considers the negative Available Stock, Safety Stock and Reorder Point Quantity as demand. The system creates Production Proposals when Reorder Point Quantity is greater than Available Quantity.


System is working as expected.
