E1: 34: Production Number (PMPN) Planning Ignores Excess Supply from Firm Supply Orders when G and L message Types are Removed, Creating Unneeded Planned Orders (R3483) (Doc ID 2697389.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 25, 2020

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Requirements Planning - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a single PMPN value is assigned to multiple sales orders with varying dates and quantities, the PMPN planning will over supply in the case where there is an overall shortage.  This only occurs when G and L message types are removed from UDC 34 MT table and there is a firm order that would ordinarily get an L or G action message. 

The firm Order that is in excess of requirements as of system date is expected to reduce the PLO message for a future requirement, but the PLO is for the full future requirement, independent of the quantity in excess in the firm order.


  1. Setup supply items as PMPN items, planning for sales demand, such as an OPC1 lot for lot, G planning fence rule and a sufficient planning fence days for the test.  Mix of M mfg and P purchased items.  
  2. Create past due sales orders, such as qty of 1 and qty of 20, with a past due supply order in excess of past due, such as qty of 25.  Excess of 4.  
  3. Enter a future SO requirement in excess of the total supply or excess, such as an order for 5. 
  4. Assign the same PMPN value to each order, independent of date or qty, demand or supply, such that the excess supply can be consumed by the future order.  
  5. Run PMPN planning and note that the planned order message is for the full demand quantity, ignoring the left over supply not previously consumed.  A planned order for 5, as in this example, results in excess supply for this PMPN value.
