Last updated on AUGUST 23, 2021

Applies to:

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


There is no on hand quantity with a production number and no supply orders with a production number like WO, OP and OT. And there are a few demands which are different request dates.

Run MRP (R3482/R3483) under the situation. Unnecessary planned order messages are generated.  At this time, 'Multiple Order Quantity' in Item/Branch Master  is populated.


 12/10 84EA
 12/15 84EA

Planned order messages (F3411) generated by MRP('Multiple Order Quantity' is 500EA)
 12/10 500EA
 12/15 500EA



1.Add a manufactured item; RSMM with stocking type M in F4101 and F4102. Turn on Production Number Controlled.

2.Add a component item; RSMPMPN1 with stocking type M in F4101 and F4102. Turn on Production Number Controlled. And set 500 to Multiple Order Quantity in Quantities page.

3.Add a BOM (P3002). RSMM is parent item. RSMPMPN1 is component item. Quantity of component is 1EA for 1EA parent item.

4. Add production number (P34401).

5.Add forecast of the parent item for 4 different request dates (P3460). Forecast quantity of each date is 84EA, 83EA, 83EA and 83EA. All of them have the production number.

6. Set R3483 processing option. Populate 2 (include PMPN Planning) to 3. Project Planning in Mfg Mode tab.

7.Run R3483

8.Check detail message (P3411).

For parent item, 4 planned order messages; quantity 83EA, 84EA, 84EA and 84EA correctly.

For component item, 4 planned order messages with 500EA each are generated. 1 PLO message that has the earliest request date is OK. However, the rest 3 PLO messages are unnecessary because of oversupply.

Total demand quantity of the component is 331EA(83+84+84+84). Total Supply quantity is 2000EA (500+500+500+500). MRP generates planned orders with over quantity.
