E1: 34: MRP (R3482 or R3483) Does not Consider the Supply from a Frozen Purchase Order (P4310) for Periods of Supply Item (Order Policy Code = 4) (Doc ID 2950383.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a purchased item set up with Order Policy Code = 4 (Periods of Supply) is on a a Purchase Order with a Freeze Code = Y, MRP (R3483) will not consider the quantity on that order as supply. This will create an oversupply situation as it generates messages.

1. Create a purchased item (P4101/P41026) with Order Policy Code = 4, Value Order Policy = 20, Safety Stock = 1000, Leadtime Level = 18, and Multiple Order Quantity = 100.
2. Create demand for the item as a component on multiple parent Work Orders (P48013/P3111) in the future.
3. Create a Purchase Order (P4310) detail line for the item for a quantity that will not satisfy the full demand and safety stock.
4. Run MRP (R3482).
5. Review Supply & Demand (P4021) and Detail Messages (P3411); notice that the quantity on the Purchase Order is considered as supply for the requested orders.
6. Freeze the Purchase Order detail line by entering Y in the Freeze Code field (row exit, Additional Info 2).
7. Re-run MRP and re-inquire on Supply & Demand and Detail Messages. Notice that the order messages do not consider the frozen Purchase Order quantity as supply.
8. Re-test the issue where the Order Quantity on the frozen Purchase Order is increased to a value that would satisfy demand on all future orders.
9. Re-run MRP again.
10. Inquire on Supply & Demand; notice that MRP still suggests new orders and the ending available quantity will be the same as the frozen Purchase Order. The situation creates an oversupply.
