2604268 - MRP Proposals Split for Each Demand

Symptom

You notice that irrespective of the Lot Sizing Method maintained in Material/Product master data, MRP proposals are not consolidated into one Demand.

Instead, the system creates one proposal for each demand entry in the Planning screen.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Supply Planning workcenter and Products view.
2. Show All Products by Selection and Find Product ABC.
3. Open Product Planning Details.

Here you will notice that system has created multiple Production Proposals for same date with different quantity,instead of consolidating all the requirement into one Production Proposal.

Cause

In case of product specification for the material, system will only consider Lot-for-Lot as the Lot Sizing Method.

Also if you have selected Demand-Driven Planning as your Planning procedure, all planning proposals are created by date and quantity for each requirement.

Resolution

This is expected System Behavior.
