OPM MRP: Why Some POs are not available in the MRP result (MRP material activity form) while they can be seen in Oracle Inventory Supply/demand form?

(Doc ID 1074635.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Process Manufacturing Process Planning - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Find that some POs are not available in the MRP result (MRP material activity form) while they are in mtl_supply (can be seen in Oracle Inventory Supply/demand details form)
Expect all BPOs/PO seen in supply/demand screen to be also available in MRP material activity form
In background tables that means that Some POs are not available in the MR_TRAN_TBL TABLE while they are in MTL_SUPPLY
Same issue is seen in OPM MPS material activity, some POs cannot be seen

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Check supply/demand form for an item in a process organization
2. Compare with MRP material activity form
Missing some POs in the MRP form

Why is that feature, as it can cause planning users to not rely on MRP result?
