Hello,   I am trying to get a better understanding of the LSF handling in SAP.    We have users that are reporting that they are reporting production and shipping as they normally do, however the LSF requirements that are either current or in the past, still remain on the MD04 screen.    I have looked at the Sales Agreements and don’t see any unfulfilled demand.    I am looking for tips on where to better understand why the LSF requirements are not disappearing after production is reported.

I would appreciate any feedback that you might have!

Thank you!

    You are more likely to get answers in this forum if you post it as a ‘discussion’ rather than as a ‘document’.  Some forum members do not look at documents at all.

    You haven’t mentioned the strategy you are using.  In Strategy 10, LSF requirements are normally only reduced by shipment.  Any time your supply plan is equal to or greater than the Sales order consumption, you will have LSF requirements remaining, along with FGs stock.  These balance each other out during net requirements calculation.  This is generally considered to be desirable.

    I don’t know your business process, but in some environments it is necessary to delete PIR rqments that are no longer needed.  SAP furnishes standard programs for this, which can be executed by regular scheduled job.
