MRP Is Not Creating Correct Quantity Requisition In The Case Of Different Unit Of Measure.
Last updated on JUNE 28, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Purchasing - Version 184.108.40.206 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Req quantities are being updated from original quantity to much, much larger quantity which can be traced to UOM conversion setups
Item is setup with Primary UOM - and different purchasing UOM
Item conversions are setup
MRP plans in primary UOM and when planned orders are released - conversion happens and Req is created using different purchasing UOM
SO -- Originally suspected that when MRP released planned order, the Req was created with wrong quantity
After tracking for long time, can see MRP created REQ's a created with right conversion and correct quantity
and it was discovered that APPROVED Req has quantity changed for unknown reason AFTER the req has been created.
SO - it appears that some change done to the Req by user is causing a conversion operation to trigger and causing this problem.
MRP creates planned order and release the order and get Req created
- all OK
Check back a few days later and find that some Req lines have quantity changed, and if you use Original quantity * conversion factor, it matches
Approved Req should not have quantity changed
HUGE over-ordering when req quantity is changed
