MRP on S/4 HANA – Planning File Entries Customizing Path is missing
In previous releases, once you create a plant, you have to activate MRP for this plant via customizing path: IMG -> Production -> MRP -> Planning File Entries -> Activate MRP and Set Up Planning File or transaction code OMDU.
However, in S/4 HANA, this customizing path does not exist any more.
For S/4 HANA it is decided that all plants are by default relevant for MRP. Technically this means that T001W-BEDPL=’X’ is always set for each plant. For S/4 HANA Cloud, it is set from SAP. For S/4 HANA On Premise, please use the workaround to set relevant flags in t-code OMDU currently.
Also, you can see the customizing path Convert Planning File Entries for MRP Areas does not exist in S/4 HANA either. In S/4 HANA, the report RMDBVM00, RMDBVM10(for conversion MDVM/MDVL into DBVM/DBVL and back) is not available any more.
Do you have any other question about the MRP related customizing? Let’s figure it out together one by one.
Thanx for sharing...!!
So when we activate MRP areas now, the conversion of planning file entries for MRP areas will happen in background automatically or it will be as default once MRP area is activated?
The conversion of planning file entries for MRP areas is not relevant on S/4 HANA, since a new planning file exists. Please check the WIKI below for details about MRP on HANA and S/4 HANA:
MRP on S/4 HANA - Planning File Entries Customizing Path is missing
Thanks for sharing this information. I have added a link to this blog on the MRP on HANA FAQ WIKI mentioned above.
Seems the link you added is this blog instead of the wiki you mentioned. Could you please confirm?
Hi Jessica, the correct link is MRP on HANA FAQ - ERP Manufacturing (PP) - SCN Wiki
what is for whatever reason a plant does not want to run MRP ? How to turn it off in S4 ?
If you don't want to run MRP on a specific plant, just set the MRP type ND for all the materials on this plant.
there has to be a better way of doing this. Try telling the business to flag mtls as ND and see how they respond. Its all redundant data.
Hello my name is Jon I have situation maybe your expertise in Production Planning can help with..
We have 1 internal material that via CIMR links to multiple customer numbers. ie.
20000000 = 1234567-A, 1234567-B and 1234567-C
the letter at back defines customer ship to location
we want to maintain 1 internal part number and plan based on customer demand by location.
also each location may have different pack quantities with we can manage based on packaging instruction and packaging determination Type "SHIP" (material/ship-to)
do you have some idea of how we can plan based on customer ship to ?
For S/4 HANA on premise, could I said that regardless whether plant's T001W-BEDPL is mark with "X" or not, in general, the system will still consider the plant for MRP? Or that T001W-BEDPL indicator still hold the control whether the plant is to be activated with MRP in S/4 HANA environment?
Thanks in advance!
While I realize this post is older, thank you for mentioning transaction OMDU in the blog. I was able to use this to set T001W-BEDPL with an 'X' like all of the other plants that were setup in S/4Hana on premise and was not documented by the previous configurators.
