Symptoms

In A9.2.1, P3482/P3483 MRP Regeneration is not properly deferring purchase order quantities, when the Generation Date is PRIOR or EQUAL to the first consumption period. This reflects in the Time Series (P3413) incorrectly as both +POU and +PO are reflecting the valid purchase orders (PO's) open and due in a future period. The =EAU and =EA balances however are different, the value being the quantity of the purchase order that should be rescheduled out. This corruption then passes on into the +BA value, causing MRP to over plan for the missing PO amount by suggesting a new order prior to existing stock running out. Application is loosing the value of one whole purchase order.

Running MRP with a Generation Date AFTER the first consumption period date will yield correct results.
