E1: 34: Master Planning Schedule - Multiple Plant - R3483 Plans Incorrectly With AVLC = 1 if Minimum Reorder Qty (Alias: RQMN) in Demand B/P is Greater Than Quantity OH in the Supply B/P (Doc ID 2984501.1)

When setting the Availability Checking in P3403T - Branch Relationship to 1 and having the item defined with the Minimum Order Quantity in the demand B/P to a higher value than the existing stock on hand on the supply B/P, the system suggests an incorrect order message for a purchase order to replenish the entire quantity in the Demand B/P rather than triggering an order message for an OT order to bring the existing stock on hand from the supply B/P to demand B/P and an O - order message in the Demand B/P for creating a Purchase Order for the remaining quantity.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. P4101 / P41026 - add a (purchased) item in both supply B/P (e.g. M30) and demand B/P (e.g. A30), OPC= 1 - Lot for Lot.
  2. P41026 - Quantities tab - define the Minimum Reorder Quantity (Alias: RQMN) = 49 EA.
  3. P3460 - Add a forecast record in demand B/P for e.g. 110 EA.
  4. P4114 - Adjust some quantities in stock for the component, in the supply B/P - e.g. 50 EA.
  5. P3403T - Define a Branch Relationship between supply B/P M30 and demand B/P A30 for the above item.
  6. R3483 - data select both B/Ps and the purchased item and create planning messages.
  7. P3411 - review the MRP messages and notice 2 order messages being triggered: 1 order message for an OT order to bring the existing 50 EA from supply B/P to demand B/P and 1 order message for an OP order in the demand B/P for the remaining quantity of 60 EA. This is correct.
  8. P41026 - Quantities tab - Change the Minimum Reorder Quantity to 51 EA (greater than the existing on hand quantity from the supply B/P).
  9. R3483 - re-run MRP to create planning messages.
  10. P3411 - check the MRP messages and see that there is only one supply order message for a purchase order triggered in the Demand B/P for the whole required quantity (110 EA). This is incorrect, because the existing stock on hand from the Supply B/P is NOT used / transferred correctly.
