Purpose

This wiki page introduces how is Purchasing Info Record considered in S/4 HANA MRP.

Overview

<Simplification>

As note 2268069 mentioned , In S/4 HANA, Purchasing info record is a source of supply in their own right. MRP selects purchasing info records if the "relevant for automatic sourcing" indicator is set. It is not required to create a source list entry on top of the purchasing info record.

Meanwhile, as of S/4HANA on-premise edition 1511 SP01, source list can also be used to overrule indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" temporally. This test case mainly talks about whether purchasing info record would be considered during MRP in a S/4 HANA system.

<Conclusion>

 

Source List

Result: vendor in PR

Result: purchasing org. in PR

Planned delivery time in

Result : info record filled in PR( 2420547 And 82857)

<Scenario 1: Source list doesn't exist or is invalid>

In this case, MRP only considers indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing".

When indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is ticked, purchasing info record would be considered by MRP and corresponding purchasing information(Planned delivery time, Vendor, Purchasing Org. etc.) would be filled in PR:

Indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is ticked

Run MRP in MD03 or MD01N:

Purchasing Info Record is selected.

When indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is not ticked, purchasing info record would not be considered by MRP and corresponding purchasing information(Planned delivery time, Vendor, Purchasing Org. etc.) would not be filled in PR:

<Scenario 2: Source list is valid>

In this case, source list could overrule indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing". When source list is not relevant to MRP(indicator MRP= ' '), purchasing info record would not be considered by MRP even if indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is ticked. When source list is relevant to MRP(indicator MRP= '1'), purchasing info record would be considered by MRP even if indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is not ticked.

When source list is not relevant to MRP(indicator MRP= ' ')

Even if indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is ticked:

Run MRP in MD03 or MD01N:

Purchasing Info record is not selected:

When source list is relevant to MRP(indicator MRP= '1' or '2')

Even if indicator "relevant for automatic sourcing" is not ticked:

<Additional Information>

1."Scheduling according to purchasing info record or agreement" indicator is simplified in S/4 HANA system.

In classic ERP system, you may use indicator "Scheduling according to purchasing info record or agreement" in OMDT to determine whether the planned delivery time is taken from material master or from purchasing info record.

However, in S/4 HANA system, indicator "Scheduling according to purchasing info record or agreement" is simplified. The planned delivery time in purchasing info record should be more precise than the one in material master. So if purchasing info record is considered in planning run, MRP always uses the planned delivery time from the purchasing info record directly.

KBA 2523417 explains this logic in details.

2. Purchasing info record number is only filled in PR if you run MRP in MD01N. After running MRP in classic transactions (e.g.: MD01. MD02, MD03), purchasing info record number is not filled in PR as per note 82857.

After running MRP in MD01N:

After running MRP in classic transaction like MD03:

Note 2420547 explains this logic in details.
